Tem­per­a­ture con­trol­ling tech­nol­ogy in seat cover in­tro­duced in In­dia

Commercial Vehicle - - NEWS -

Atech­nol­ogy to con­trol tem­per­a­ture through a seat cover is claimed to have been found in In­dia. This is said to make an ef­fec­tive re­place­ment for AC and heater, and aimed at en­hanc­ing the com­fort of the driver. Called Ther­maCool Com­fort Seat, the tech­nol­ogy, ex­pected to im­prove safety, es­pe­cially in heavy ve­hi­cles, has been de­vel­oped jointly by Gen­eral Mo­tors, USA, and Dhama In­no­va­tions ac­cord­ing to Kran­thi Ki­ran Vis­takula, Founder and CEO of Dhama In­no­va­tions. Said Vis­takula, “The Ther­maCool Com­fort Seat tech­nol­ogy is ca­pa­ble of keep­ing the driver at de­sired tem­per­a­tures of com­fort, be­tween 14 de­gree Cel­sius and 50 de­gree Cel­sius. The 40 Watt power con­sump­tion by the tech­nol­ogy is neg­li­gi­ble in its im­pact on mileage.” Stat­ing that for a 300 km drive, one per cent im­prove­ment in per­for­mance trans­lates into 1000 km of an­nual im­prove­ment. Ex­pressed Jitesh Ch­heda, Owner, Ch­heda Cargo Car­rier, that AC is not cost ef­fec­tive for a truck trans­porter since it im­pacts mileage. Since mileage im­prove­ments have an ef­fect on driver earn­ing, it is likely that the driver will not use AC even if it is there in the truck. The com­fort seat tech­nol­ogy looks promis­ing there­fore, he opined.
