Rapid increase in the level of air-pollution, declining effectiveness of existing cabin air quality sensors as well as growing awareness regarding passenger health and safety is leading towards development of innovative automotive cabin air quality sensors. Emission control needs with stringent regulations is likely to play a significant role in further growth of automotive cabin air quality sensors market in 2019.
How are emission control measures driving the sales of automotive cabin air quality sensors?
With growing exposure to hazardous amounts of pollution and growing concern towards inhaling poisonous particles, manufacturers have taken immense efforts in developing technologies such as active carbon filters and automatic climate control. Volkswagen is planning to further develop vehicles integrated with multiple filters for removing particles and would attach cabin air quality sensors. Volkswagen recently developed a new car, Tiguan, with integration of time-zone climatronic AC that regulates cabin air quality and temperature as well. The systems consists of cabin air quality sensors as well as anti-allergy filters for reducing intrusion of the pollutants inclusive of allergens and fungal spores.
Mention a notable development in automotive cabin air quality sensors market?
Aclima, a California based startup offering hyperlocal air quality data as well as insights, is planning to incorporate its internet-connected cabin air quality sensors with the Google Street View automobiles, in a bid to expand its partnership with two other companies. The cabin air quality sensors offered by Aclima is expected to be beneficial for measuring levels of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, nitric oxide, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Data is likely to be made public by means of Google BigQuery. This in turn offers the Google Street View cars with effective localized data regarding the cabin air quality including increasing level of pollutants in neighborhoods.
Although manufacturers are constantly working towards developing effective sensors for improving the cabin air quality in automobiles, initiatives are being taken by some engineers, for growth of overall automotive cabin air quality sensors market. For instance, a research engineer from Ford College Graduate Product Development recently took a major initiative in developing technology, in a bid to enhance the cabin air quality of the cars. The engineer Victoria Schein is working on projects that is expected to detect and mitigate odors in the autonomous vehicles, thereby developing new interior design concepts as well as climate control technology.
What sets Valeo’s new air pollution mapping service apart from other automotive cabin air quality sensors?
On a broader perspective, the automotive technology firm, Valeo recently developed a real-time air pollution level mapping system for collecting information regarding concentration levels regarding serval pollutants. This innovative solution is accessible form mobile devices such as smartphones and are likely to help in eliminating exposure to the poor cabin air quality. Valeo Oxy’Zen is the solution that utilizes ultra-high-effective filters for eliminating nearly 98% of the ultrafine particles from the cabin air. Most of all, the high-performance ionizer helps in deodorizing and cleaning cabin air quality and the sensors are expected to offer real-time updates regarding air quality inside and outside the vehicle.
