Okay, I was hoping the Tesla engineers could come up with an acceptable design on their own, but it looks like they need our help. I would propose a compressed air system that shoots air up and over the windshield. The unit could utilize the heat pump to warm the air when necessary. Please post your ideas on this thread, these guys need some HELP!!!

Yeah, it would be fine if your company wasn't the leader in turning the automotive industry upside down with innovative design and technology. That's 100 year old technology!

  1. Remove the wiper and use RainX
  2. Remove the windshield and wear goggles
  3. Paint over the windshield and drive with your head out the window like a dog
  4. Pull over every 50 feet and pay for a homeless with a squeegee
  5. Only drive on sunny days
  6. Move to the Sahara

I really think either the BAW is a Tesla joke on us designed to impress us with the real tech even more this summer. Or designed intentionally so hideous that ensures any owner will take it off after purchase leaving most CTs on the road with the original look.

However since OP asked for Ideas, I would say, replace the BAW with a SAW. A Small wiper that cleans a high resolution front facing camera to be used during the rain. Less drag, less energy wasted and most importantly less exposure to ugly for innocent bystander looking at CT.

Edit: May be it would be better with two wipers and two cameras. Wipers would be out of phase so the resulting image would be clear most of the time (better than BAW). With a wide driver display that can handle stitched view that includes side cameras.

Yup, get rid of all that front glass, use 3mm stainless steel with holes for two cameras and interior front would be couple large LCD screens.
