University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute Study: The Influence of Hydrophobic Windshield Coating on Driver Performance

The study used simulated conditions to study the effect of hydrophobic coatings on windshields. The study indicates that hydrophobic coatings can improve an operator’s visual acuity by nearly 34% over an untreated windshield. Additionally, a driver’s response time to identify a small target was improved by 25 percent, from four seconds to three seconds. One second response time represents about 58 feet of travel distance at 40 miles per hour.
