[Under Development products] Ultrasonic Cleaning Lens Unit (UCLU)
Ultrasonic Cleaning Lens Unit for Automotive is compact lens unit that can atomize water droplets on the lens surface Ultrasonic vibration of the outermost lens. It is also possible to melt snow on the lens by changing the ultrasonic band. It can be performed with one device from raindrop atomization to snow melting that on to the lens.
What is Ultrasonic Cleaning Lens Unit?
Cleaning Lens Unit for Automotive
This lens unit is equipped with an ultrasonic cleaning function without changing the appearance from standard lens. It doesn’t required any optional partsSince clear visibility can be secured regardless of weather,provide the clear visibility of the camera module, contribute to the social implementation of ADAS/AD in the new era, and aim to realize a comfortable mobility society.

Ultrasonic vibration of the outermost lens makes it possible to atomize raindrops and melt snow
- This lens unit can be used for raindrops, ice, snow, cloudiness, etc.
- Multiple units can be mounted with low power consumption
- The raindrop removal time is faster than that without the cleaning unit.
