Ford Develops Tech to Prevent Fogged Windshields

Ford Sensors | Shults Ford South | Pittsburgh, PA

If there’s one thing Pittsburghers know, it’s the pain of foggy, frosty windshields when cold weather hits. To alleviate the stress that burden causes, Ford has developed a new sensor system that can prevent fogged windshields before you lose visibility.

The system, called Windscreen Weather Station, recently rolled out on the Ford Kuga and Explorer in the United Kingdom. This advanced system, located near the rearview mirror, uses sensors to detect moisture in the air. It can then automatically engage the air conditioning to prevent the glass from fogging up.

“Waiting for your windscreen to clear after exercising is one of life’s little irritations — but driving without being able to clearly see the view ahead can be dangerous. This technology anticipates the problem and deals with it without the driver even knowing,” said Ingo Krolewski, Ford’s European climate control supervisor.

Ford notes that it rolled out the feature in Europe because COVID-19 has led to a major uptick in cycling and running. Breathing hard in cold weather can turn your glass opaque quickly — but the Windscreen Weather Station is that much quicker, helping stop the problem before it starts.

We’re eager to see what new technologies Ford has on the horizon to make our lives that much easier. If you’re interested in seeing what Ford has brought to the table for 2021 — whether it’s the all-new Ford F-150, adventurous Bronco Sport, or all-electric Mustang Mach-E — stop by Shults Ford South in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
