Title : automatic car wiper 2- literature review each 500 ☺ 3. LITERATURE REVIEW/THEORY Every Honors project needs to do a certain amount of “research” into relevant problem areas, appropriate solutions and the technologies that support them, and also a review of existing examples covering these areas or other projects that have tackled similar problems. Try to illustrate how this research has led to or justified the decisions you’ve taken. It is expected that work done by others in the past that are relevant to the present work be discussed briefly. This constitutes the foundation on which the intended report is built on. The review of the literature summarizes and evaluates the previous authors’ contribution to the present study. e.g.(Doebelin E. 1985). It is noted that while reviewing the work done by others, there are five types of notes that can be taken. They are: i. Quotation (use author’s exact words), ii. Paraphrasing (use the authors’ idea in another words), iii. Summarizing (use author’s main points), iv. Copying (use author’s figures, tables or charts), and v. Personal reactions or comments on the work. Direct quotation should be used sparingly in the write-up and it should be brief, starting and ending with inverted commas. When paraphrasing, the ideas are stated in the writer’s own words. This is an alternative to direct quotation. To ensure that the writer uses his own words; he reads the portion of the text to be paraphrased, close the book and then write down the idea in his own words. A summary is the gist of the work being reviewed stated in the writer’s own words. Number of Research Articles expected is 4-5 All this research articles chosen for the project should have relevance to the work carried and also should include the following • Include a brief description with appropriate illustrations • Discuss the concepts, approach, methods, analysis, and issues. • Identify the limitations • Suggest improvements. • Compare the literature selected, discussing the method involved and their limitations and how the proposed project would fill the gap. The key points should also be presented in a table. • Table 2.1. Summary of papers reviewed on ABC Title, Author, Main Year points Limitations and strengths (concepts/design/me thods) Suggested improvements ...

Design and development of smart automatic windshield wiper system: fuzzy logic approach
According to the authors of the articles, there are a lot of disadvantages involved when a
driver uses a manual wiper. Since the wipers are meant to help the driver’s visibility during
precipitation, there needs to be ease of use and automation of the wipers would help. In their
article, Bansode, Rajankar, & Ghatule, (2012), discuss how to develop an automatic wiper
through the use of the fuzzy logic approach. The wiper in questions should be able to
automatically start wiping the windshield once the rain starts and change its wiping speed with
the intensity of the rain up to the point where the precipitation ends completely.
In fuzzy logic, a system can gradually change its speed or intensity over a series of values
that have been set. In this case, the automatic car wiper will be able to change its wiping speed
depending on the intensity of the rain. Senses will be placed on the windshield of the vehicles to
since the intensity of the rain. A programmable chip within the car wiper systems will then be
programmed to ensure that the wiping intensity increases with the intensity of the rain and also
reduce with the reduction in the rain intensity. The systems will include the use of a peripheral
interface controller. Secondly, a grid sensor will be installed on the windshield, and lastly, a DC
motor that will be used to generate the movements of the wiper itself.
There are strengths associated with the fuzzy logic approach for designing the automatic
car wiping systems. Programmable chips to be used are very reliable and do not have fatigues as
humans have. Unlike humans who suffer fatigue and have impaired decision-making capacity
during an intense activity such as heavy rain over long hours; the use of a programmed chip will
reduce this risk. Programmed electronics do not suffer wrong decisions under pressure or fatigue.



This will help improve road safety during precipitation periods. Since the use of the fuzzy logic
approach will not require the driver to engage any manual controller. This means that the driver
will only be involved in driving the vehicle. Thus the reduction in time and brainpower needed to
constantly monitor the intensity of the rain to engage the correct wiping speed.
The automation of the wiping system reduces t...
