London: A secret system which is used on fighter jets to repel rain, snow and insects is currently being developed for cars.
Formula 1 racing car constructor McLaren has revealed that this system can lead to a total wipe-out of windscreen wipers on new cars,according to a report.
The new technology, which is being developed by the automotive company, is still under wraps and might use high-frequency sound waves similar to those used by dentists.
The force field of sound waves would help repel snow and bugs from the windscreens of the cars.
The technology could also improve fuel economy by removing the need for wiper motors, and if the tests are successful, the technology could be introduced to McLaren`s sports cars.
