The cleaning system includes a radiation optics node, was noted in the document. The node emits a laser beam for irradiating the area on the glass and detects dirt. The system evaluates the degree of pollution and regulates the level of exposure to the laser beam. It is limited to the impact so that the rays do not scratch the glass.

However, the Cybertruck cleaning system may be completely different. After all, Tesla
