Thermal management technology provider Gentherm has received a production vehicle award for its ClimateSense technology, which is used in an all-new 2024 EV from a global automaker.
ClimateSense is Gentherm’s proprietary vehicle “microclimate” solution. It consists of thermal products, integrated electronics, embedded software and “a thermo-physiology-based, human-centric approach.”
ClimateSense technology is designed to use localized convective and conductive heating and cooling to create personalized comfort while reducing HVAC energy consumption. Published studies indicate that the technology can deliver between 50 to 69 percent energy savings in cold-weather testing and 34 percent energy savings in hot-weather testing, compared to using only a central HVAC system.
“Our ClimateSense microclimate technology will help OEM customers achieve their electrification goals by increasing vehicle range and energy savings, while delivering a best-in-class personalized thermal experience,” said Phil Eyler, CEO of Gentherm.
