According to the report, drivers in many countries face extreme fogging problems during monsoon and winter seasons. Fog formed on the windshield of vehicles affects the visibility while driving and may cause potential fatality hazards. The climate condition constantly changes along with the temperature that often makes the car windshield and windows foggy. Especially, when the outside weather is cold and the heater is turned on inside the car, there is fog formation on the inside of the car window and windshield. In addition, with the outside temperature and moisture content more than the car's inside temperature, moisture starts condensing at the exterior glass surface of the car, leading to unfavorable driving experience.
Hot wire anemometer, also known as thermal anemometer, is used to measure the fluid velocity by measuring the heat lost into the environment from the fluid. By measuring the change in wire temperature, the loss of heat can be calculated. The loss of heat can be converted to fluid velocity using the convective theory.
Further, the report states that defoggers primarily malfunction due to electrical circuitry and physical blockage factors. One of the most commonly observed downtime of a defogger is due to the air intake blockage, which is placed at the base of the windshield. The clogging leads partial fresh air entry into the cabin, which further limits defogger functionalities. At times, AC vents also get clogged, preventing the air to flow into the windshield.
