The present invention is a frozen precipitation elimination system for motor vehicles. In particular, the present invention uses a temperature sensor, humidity sensor, precipitation sensor, and heating system (that uses heat produced from far infrared rays, 7-14 microns, which is completely safe for all living things) to warm the exterior vehicle surfaces preventing ice, snow and frost from accumulating on the exterior vehicle surfaces.

Windshields, windows, and mirrors are the essence of visibility on all motor vehicles. Without good visibility accidents are imminent. Many weather related elements such as dirt, fog, snow, and ice cause poor visibility. The prior art uses heaters, defrosters, and windshield wipers to eliminate an extremely small accumulation of frozen precipitation while the car is being driven. This provides adequate visibility to the driver and passengers. The most important point to emphasize is that heaters and defrosters would take an extremely long time to work if the accumulation has occurred overnight or when you are away from your vehicle for extended periods. It may take up to an hour to eliminate this buildup by way of manual labor.

The following example pertains to people who live in cold climates, such as Europe, Canada and parts of the United States. It clearly illustrates the shortcoming of the prior art. Is this you? It's 6:00AM. You hear on the radio that there is going to be a snowstorm today. You park your car at the railroad station and make your commute into the city to your job. Returning home, you get off the train and walk towards your car only to find it completely covered with snow. You open the trunk to get your scraper and broom and proceed to knock off all the snow on your hood, trunk, roof, windshield, windows and rear window. After fifteen minutes you have discovered that under all that snow is a layer of ice covering all the glass surfaces. It takes half an hour to scrape off all the ice. Finally, you get into your car to go home. But wait, you can't go home because the outside mirrors are covered with a layer of ice too. You get out of the car and carefully and delicately scrape off the ice. You get into the car, re-angle the mirrors, and go home. Total time wasted: 45 minutes or longer.

All of the above would not be necessary with the "Smart Car Ice and Snow Eliminator." In the morning, before going to work, simply press the snowflake icon on your car remote when the engine is off When the precipitation sensor senses snowfall (perhaps several hours later), the heating system automatically goes on and snow is melted and prevented from accumulating on the exterior vehicle surfaces.

The present invention has several advantages over the prior art. It is a time saving and labor saving device and it avoids having to expose oneself to extreme cold. The present invention is unique and counterintuitive because one would not ordinarily think that its features would be activated when the engine is off and the vehicle is unoccupied.
