The windshield is wiped instantly and uniformly, regardless of vehicle speed, allowing for constant and perfect visibility. Front-facing cameras, which are now more and more common on car windshields, also benefit from an improved field of vision.
As a result, according to a study including 7,500 tests carried out by the independent organization Fraunhofer IOSB in Karlsruhe, drivers in vehicles equipped with the Valeo AquaBlade™ react 315 milliseconds more quickly than drivers using traditional windshield wiper systems. That faster reaction time translates into a braking distance reduced by four meters in urban driving conditions at speeds of 50 km/h.
