Paper Title
Modification of car seat in terms of ergonomics by means of thermal comfort
  Pinara Hiral J.,  Kunalsinh Kathia,  Navnit Patel

Comfort play significant impacts on user as a passenger or as a driver. Research have been done in vehicle from its invention regarding features, appearances, safety and comfort parameters from last decade. It is observed that, due to global warming effect now Air-Condition is must in any four-wheel vehicle. Its use increase vehicle fuel consumption and this increase fuel consumption by country. Seat acts as thermal insulator and thermal control of the seats is good alternative to increase performance of conventional air conditioning system, reducing the energy consumption and improving the thermal comfort. This can be achieved by improving heat exchange between seat surface and occupant. In this present work seat is modify by having mattress of low mass nylon mesh having air conditioning supply from A.C. duck. Test were conducted on normal seat and seat having mattress cover, by actual driving vehicle on defined route by different participants and measuring temperature of different body parts contact with seat surface and simultaneously taking their thermal comfort perception. Mattress can be use with fan mode of air conditioning system when traveling in morning. Test results shows improvement in thermal comfort with less time to achieve comfortable temperature, it is proven by average 3°C reduction of contact surface temperature.

Keywords- Car driving seat, ergonomics, thermal comfort.
