Ford patented moisture-sensitive chair technologyNovember 12, 2019
The system will measure humidity and automatically adjust the climate control of the chair so that it is at a comfortable temperature and dry.
Almost all new cars now have heated and ventilated chairs, but Ford is going to make them better by patenting a new technology that determines the humidity in the chair and adjusts climate control accordingly.
In reality, the system is not much more complicated than simple heated and ventilated chair systems. Inside the seat is a moisture sensor that measures fluid. This is possible due to the fact that in the seat cover there are a couple of liquid-permeable holes that allow fluid to leak into the sensor. There is even a light sensor inside the seat, indicating the presence of moisture in it. Climate-controlled chairs are usually used through 2 separate systems.
Armchairs are heated thanks to a series of resistors that heat up as electric current passes through them and are cooled by a fan.
However, Ford is not the first automaker to plan a revolution in the seat heating and cooling system. Some time ago, Tesla came up with a new method that makes it possible to heat and cool seats.
