The mono blade wipers have an articulated arm that helps them clean a wider path but they have a plastic gear inside the arm that can break and cause it to work intermittantly. This can happen if the blade is stuck to the windshield by ice or there is a large buildup of snow on the glass and it is restricting the wiper arms movements. The articulated arm from the mono blade system is still found on newer two wiper cars, but a conventional wiper arm has been added to the drivers side for redundency.
I think it started as a styling trend since European race cars first started showing up with them. VW featured it in 1976 and even the first generation Isuzu Impulse showed up with it.
