Autonomous vehicles encounter a significant problem while in compromising weather conditions. Toyota Research Institute (TRI), is a research division of Toyota presently developing a fully autonomous vehicle. Their current solution is temporary, but their goal is to find a more permanent solution that requires minimal to no maintenance and a longer lifespan. This project focuses on creating a testing apparatus to help determine if future prototypes for keeping sensors clean are successful. Since research shows the best current solution is to create a cross sectional airflow across the lens, the testing apparatus conducted several tests using an air gun. The conclusion of this project tested both rainfall and road spray on a lidar and GoPro.
