Researchers from the University of Hanover in Germany are coming up with a way to better and more accurately approach the way of measuring weather patterns - by measuring the speed of windshield wipers.

It could also tell them where it was heaviest.
Vehicles would have to report their location and wiper blade speed whenever it was raining and that information could be used to calculate rainfall and variations across a large area.
