Rain Sensors or Rain Sensing Wipers

The most widely known add-on to a windshield is the precipitation sensor. A rain sensor is simply an instrument that detects wetness by bouncing a beam of light across the windshield. Whenever fluids are found it is going to deliver a signal to the wipers and simply turn them on autonomously. Occasionally a rain detector can sense rainfall even before the driver realizes.
