Temperature, solar radiation, wind: Three parameters to predict a vehicle’s cabin air temperature

Parked vehicles can quickly become a life-threatening environment for unattended children or dogs during the summer months. Dangerous cabin temperatures can be reached in a matter of minutes. Researchers not only calculated the temperature rise but also developed a dynamic model that requires only three readily available parameters to predict this increase: outdoor air temperature, wind velocity and solar radiation.  Read more...
