Climate Control (Part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: HX104)

Room 110 A/B  8:00 a.m.

Climate control is a defining vehicle attribute and is associated with brand image. Thermal performance and quality of climate control are both critical to customer satisfaction. The system has strong design interaction with other vehicle systems, while its primary objective is to deliver thermal comfort and occupant safety with low energy consumption. Localized Comfort, Secondary Fluids, Air Quality, Controls, System Sizing and HVAC consumer interface are just a few of the recent advances.

Organizers - Bashar AbdulNour, General Dynamics Land Systems; Jeffrey Bozeman, General Motors Co.; Tao Zhan, California Air Resources Board
