Short summary
In this study, a compliant wiper mechanism is presented which can be used in land, air, and sea vehicles, particularly the automotive industry. The wiper mechanism is essentially a partially compliant four-bar mechanism. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first compliant wiper mechanism in the literature. After the theoretical calculations, a prototype is manufactured and an experiment is set up. The data obtained from the experimental setup are compared with the theoretical results.
