Ford's OpenXC team just released a new project that's great fit for your Monsoon apps.
The Smart Wiper enables you to monitor rain frequency and/or intensity by measuring the acceleration of your wiper blades. It uses an Arduino microcontroller, Bluetooth module, and tri-axis accelerometer enclosed in a 3D printed box.
The project has an illustrated build tutorial, a full list of parts and code, and it's open source. Download Smart Wiper from GitHub and build your own!
