NAME: Finray wiper

CLIENT: Bosch ED
Role: Industrial design
FAITH: Pattented concept
As Electrical vehicles will become more dominant in the future, cars will become more silent. A conventional window wiper will be too loud. Bosch Electrical drives was working on a more bionic way to engineer a wiper. By taking inspiration from nature, they found a solution that will adapt to the ever changing curvature of the window and apply a constant force in any position. My goal was to not change the mechanics but make a design that would fit modern cars and was easy to take on and off for replacement.
When in service mode the little button on the inside will allow the user to take the Finray wiper off. PSA showed interest in further developing the concept.
