About the rain sensor
The sensor bounces beams of light within the lens. When drops hit the outside surface, it allows some of the beams to escape. The sensor detects the change in beam intensity, and determines the size of the rain drop that caused the change. The sophisticated circuitry and Digital Signal Processing detect tiny rain drops, and reject the effects of ambient light disturbances.
The sensor detects the surface condition, caused by dirt, contaminants, aging, and other factors. It properly compensates the data, making the device virtually impervious to environmental factors.
The system can detect individual drops of under half a millimeter. The sensor borrows technology that was developed over many years for automotive rain sensing windshield wiper controls.
