Tesla patent for the use of lasers instead of wipers

Last week, Tesla filed a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the use of a laser beam to clean the windshield (windshield) to replace traditional wipers that are almost 120 years old.

The application for the original Tesla patent was made about two years ago, with this technology emitting laser beams near the glass area of ​​the car windows, while a detection circuit monitors and detects data that has accumulated in this area.

The system then removes these accumulated elements using a laser beam, which will pass through the windshield. According to the USPTO, the patent for cleaning the windshield using laser beams is officially described as “laser pulse cleaning of dirt that has accumulated on glass objects in vehicles and photovoltaic systems.”

One Tesla model that has the most chances to see this technology is the production version of Cybertruck, as the prototype presented in November 2019 did not have any wipers.
