Default Old tech, not new

My 1931 ShazBhat Whirlaway also has no wipers since the cow ate them. Come to think of it, it also has no windshield. And it does it all without sensors. Let's see you beat THAT for advanced tech.

Hehehe.. Good one . Take the windshield away and you have no need for wipers LOL

Seriously, good technology but might cost soo much. I will stick to wiper since in chennai it hardly rains and you can manage it with wipers LOL. It might be 15-20 years before it can be seen on a economy car.

So will the next Phantom, 7-series, Bentleys, Maybachs etc.
Supercars won't need them, coz their aerodynamic designs and high speeds rule out the need for a windshield. lol!

The shape of the 4 door coupe is fantastic.

I like Wipers.

Good fine Ram. I think even if this gets into production, this will intially feature only in the high end cars & will take quite some time for the regular cars.

Somehow, thats exactly the thought that went through my head. Yup, the S-Class has been the platform for most new technologies. Just hope they make it reliable
