Self-driving cars are outfitted with a suite of important sensors that are used to “see” the world around them, including forward facing cameras, lidar and radar. The sensors are equally as important as a human driver’s eyes, and just like the glass windshield of a vehicle, sensor windows need to remain free from road debris, including insects, to operate correctly and more importantly safely.
