Windscreens are no longer just a piece of glass. Advanced sensors can now detect impacts to windscreen and windscreen data communicate the impact to fleet managers and insurers. This data is useful when a windscreen needs repairing because it is a safety critical feature in vehicles.
Full Data Catalog
Our data catalog on Airtable contains technical information specific to each data category, including its properties and their production availability.
Windscreen damage, confidence in which it has been damaged and the date of the damage detected are all part of windscreen data points. This, along with the damaged area, an alert that a windscreen needs replacing, and the size of the windscreen matrix all also data points. Wiper status and wiper intensity form part of windscreen data too.
An object impacting the windscreen may compromise the safety of the driver. Fleet managers receive windscreen data showing damage, they can communicate with the driver and order a replacement windscreen service if the damage is sufficient. Taking vehicles off the road for repair also impacts productivity for a business that runs a fleet. Windscreen data ensures the faulty windscreen is dealt with immediately to reduce repair time.
