    The magic of rain-sensing wipers, explained - New Jersey Herald
    Q: How do rain-sensing wipers work? I love mine - it's like magic! – SusanA: In most of these systems, a rain sensor is located on the inside the windshield behind the rear view mirror. Infrared light is projected outward through the windshield glass at a 45 degree angle. Depending on how much light reflects back to the sensor (rain, snow or dirt scatters the light, reducing reflect-back), the wipers are turned on at an appropriate speed and delay frequency. Vehicle speed is often another input for automatic wiper operation.Q: I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 HD with the ...

    Automotive sector takes pole position in adoption of additive manufacturing - Plastics Today
    The automotive industry is one of the biggest users of additive manufacturing (AM), aka 3D printing. The Wohlers Report 2018 estimates that the automotive sector accounts for up to 16% of the entire AM market. The technology is popular with automotive OEMs and their suppliers because it accelerates processes and enables breakthrough design innovations. Tooling is not needed, thus reducing lead times, and 3D printing allows the fabrication of parts that would be impossible or unfeasible using conventional techniques. This enables parts consolidation and optimization of weight-to strength ratios, advancing lightweighting goals.Additive manufacturing is extensively used in design and development, ...
