With the push towards self-driving (autonomous) vehicles accelerating, some research suggests owning a self-driving car will be the norm by 2050. Autonomous driving is expected to increase passenger and road safety, while reducing total cost of ownership and impact on the environment.

But to make crucial decisions on the road that ensure passenger safety and comfort, autonomous vehicles heavily depend on sensors, actuators, and processors. These manage sub-systems, power consumption, fuel efficiency, thermal dissipation and more.

Kendrion offers many solutions that support the evolution of autonomous driving. Our smart valve block for sensor cleaning with integrated electronics is a great example. By distributing cleaning fluid to all relevant systems, it keeps the vehicle on the move, in all weather conditions.

Integrated cameras and sensors in cars are a great innovation by the automotive industry. But they also create a new challenge: clean up. If any sensors in the system are not perfectly clean, the vehicle simply won’t drive.

Kendrion’s smart valve block for sensor cleaning offers a single cleaning solution that is customizable to specific applications. Fitted with integrated electronics (ECU), the valve block distributes cleaning fluid to all relevant systems, including optical sensors, LiDAR and cameras, front and rear windscreens, and headlights, so manufacturers can get new designs to market quickly, and without big added investments.
