In our last three DVN-I Newsletters, we reported that audio, interior lighting, and DMS are no longer just what one listens to when driving, not just what one sees when sitting in the vehicle, nor just a safety feature; they’ve evolved to improve the whole driving experience.
This week’s in-depth article looks at IAQ (interior air quality), which is growing in importance as more driving is done in dense urban traffic and people are increasingly aware—and concerned—about it. IAQ is quantified as the concentration of pollutants like CO2, NOx and VOCs. Now it’s moving beyond ust measuring negatives and adding a positive evaluation through fragrance, which is becoming a major criterion of occupant perceived quality and a design element reflecting the signature of the brand.
IAQ will be another focus of our next DVN Interior Workshop, this 25-26 April in Köln. The rubric of the event is Experience Interior • Technology for Safety, Comfort, & Fun. Get set to exhibit, to speak, or just to attend! Find more information here.
We’re ever so glad you’re with us!
