Original Abstract

The objective method how to evaluate the seat heating and seat ventilation using blankets was presented for the one specific test person. The study visualizes the differences between the seats during winter (18 °C) and summer (ramp 40-25 °C) conditions. Obtained data can be used as boundary conditions (temperatures and heat fluxes) of thermophysiological models to simulate the effect of heating/cooling seats. Additionally, the visualization of temperatures and heat fluxes in contact area can help detect suitable places of probes for thermal regulation of automotive seat.
