Jaguar’s new patent plans to use eye-tracking technology to make sure the rear-view viper is automatically responsive to the driver’s behavior.

The system will consist of tracking sensors that follow the eye and head movements of the driver. These sensors will activate the rear windscreen wiper when the behavior of the driver indicates they need to look through the rear windscreen.

As Jaguar’s patent notes, the current rear viper system on most cars can be a safety hazard.

Often when the driver uses the rear-view mirror to look back, the rear windscreen may not be clear because the viper operates on a pre-programmed frequency not responsive to its environment or the habits of the person at the wheel.

This issue may lead drivers to look down and manually adjust the viper control something that is particularly dangerous in rain or snow, when the driver should have their eyes on the road at all times.
