ClimateSense® is an integrated automotive microclimate system that embodies the truth of what Gentherm can deliver - thermal solutions that break boundaries between what is and what’s possible. It uses localized convective and conductive heating and cooling solutions, plus radiative heating to create personalized comfort while reducing significant vehicle energy consumption by up to 85%*.
ClimateSense® breakthroughs are centered around our thermophysiology-based control algorithm that enables micro climates to be perfectly tailored to match individualized thermal comfort needs. They include self-regulating thermal devices, interior surface heating, neck warming, footwell heating, steering wheel heating, seat climatization, mini compressor, liquid cooling and more.
ClimateSense® delivered between 50% to 69% energy saving in cold-weather testing (-7C), up to 85% energy savings at moderate 4C cool weather testing and 34% energy savings in hot weather testing (25C with 850 W/m 2 sun load), when compared to the existing central HVAC system of a Chevrolet Bolt EV (all results based on 2 occupants in a vehicle).
