Descrizione There has been growing concern over achieving rapid cabin thermal comfort upon entering a hot/cold-soaked vehicle, thereby reducing occupant stress and discomfort. These conditions impact when drinving or parking under direct sunlight or in extra cold air temperatures. There is a correlation between climate parameters and drivers' fatigue. Performing complex tasks under cold/hot stress is shown to result in increased errors which may reflect on safety. It has been found that cabin temperature threatens children and pets, leading to discomfort upon entry and reaching deadly levels. The most feasible passive technologies include implementing solar chimneys, aluminium covers, solar-powered ventilation, and reflective glass. The colour of the carís bodywork should also be considered, as it has a significant impact on reducing or inrease the cabin air temperature. The choice of technology depends on factors such as energy fuel, economic feasibility, end-user behaviour, and government regulations.
