Design and Manufacturing of an improved Car Wiper Mechanism

Project Overview

Mary Anderson patented her invention of the mechanical windshield wiper in 1905, and it became standard equipment by 1913. Most transportation vehicles did not have wipers. The history of the windshield wiper began with the invention of the automobile. The project goal is to modify the existing design of Car Wiper mechanisms. The main objective is to design and manufacture a new mechanism to cover the complete area of the wind screen. Different types of mechanisms like Cam-Follower, Slider-Crank, Rack-Pinion, etc. or a combination of these mechanisms will be explored used to achieve the goal of this project. At the beginning, the project needs to achieve the design and some analysis of wiper mechanism. Manufacturing of the improved wiper will be carried out.

Project Objectives

  • Design an improved car wiper.
  • Produce a CAD model for the new design.
  • Manufacturing a prototype.
  • Test and evaluate the prototype.
