Automotive Cabin Comfort System

Oct 15, 2014 | Automotive | Nikhil

Automotive cabin comfort system has significant role as it provides comfort level to passengers and drivers, which in turn ensures quickest reflexes and safe driving for all modes of transport, such as cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, etc. Presently, various companies are active in offering automotive cabin comfort system solutions, such as Robert Bosch GmbH, Lear Corporation, Johnson Controls Inc and Faurecia. The associated system can involve solution in terms of power seats, power windows, heated seats, sunroofs and defoggers, etc. Albeit these features provide different functions, such as pleasant climate by HVAC system, defoggers for removing fog, power windows for automatic movement of vehicle windows, etc; the ultimate motive is to provide efficient fuel consumption and economy in consummeration with the comfort. This, however, requires, critical engineering and design addressing efficient thermal performance, etc to meet the key business objectives of cabin comfort system. Physical testing is often carried for the assessment of cabin comfort system considering all the parameters, such as temperature, body type, air velocity and clothing, etc; which is generally expensive, time consuming and inflexible in nature.

Companies such as Exa Corporation plays a crucial role in combating the technical and financial challenges associated with the automotive cabin control system. The company provides integrated solution to evaluate passenger comfort level, optimization of HVAC flow, controlled cool and warm up time, prediction of system performance in advance of prototype builds. The designing companies such as Simgrosys provides Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis equipped enhanced designs of different automotive cabin comfort system components such as face ducts, tunnel ducts, roof ventilation and HVAC unit blower. However, the designs are also required to framework cabin control system in lined with the concerned governmental regulations. Presently, the industry is witnessing a lot of technological innovations, advancements and partnerships, which is further expected to advance in the near future. Undoubtedly, with increasing offerings such as combined filters as compared to conventional air filters, automatic AC, powered window, etc alongwith the advancement in the designed assessment tools such as CFD simulations, the passengers can expect to rely on the most economical, comfort savvy and safest driving experience in the years to follow.
