Temperature and humidity have a huge role in vehicle operation. Climate data is not only used to keep the vehicle running, it’s also used as a comfort feature for its occupants. Plus, it forms a vital safety feature when clearing windows of condensation.
Full Data Catalog
Our data catalog on Airtable contains technical information specific to each data category, including its properties and their production availability.
With a host of vehicle sensors, climate data can determine the condition of the exterior and interior. This includes driver temperature settings, humidity in the cabin, external temperature, internal temperature and the status of the de-fogging program.
On a winter day, the car must be frost free and up to temperature for its occupants. Climate data can be used to remotely control the vehicle features to prepare it when owners are ready to begin their journey. Climate data is sent over the air to an app that users access.
Using the vehicle sensors, the vehicle and owner get a full understanding of how much heating, defrosting and de-fogging is required to make the car safe to drive. This data can be used to ensure the car is not left on too long, understand driver behaviour during extreme climates and how much energy these activities use.
Climate data, combined with location data can be useful to monitor conditions in different areas. Ideal for fleet management or authorities that need a bigger picture and many data points to map out the local climate. For instance when snow ploughs, road gritting or ice warnings are needed if the temperature drops below zero.
