Thermal comfort of passengers and drivers is one of the main concerns of the automotive industry due to its influence on overall comfort. Although manufacturers have been introducing air-conditioning systems inside the vehicle for this purpose, it is necessary to design seats using new materials and heating and ventilation systems to guarantee comfort in the passenger-seat contact area.
To achieve this goal, the Biomechanics Institute of Valencia (IBV) has a Thermal comfort laboratory for automotive seats, which can study the thermal properties of the seats in a range of conditions (from winter cold to extreme heat) and can also assess the level of thermal comfort. This laboratory offers companies the possibility of assessing vehicle seats that improve the passenger’s thermal comfort, providing an added value to their design.
