Internal Automotive Air Quality

Car manufacturers are not only interested in the quality of air outside a vehicle; there is a growing need and desire to measure the levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and environmental pollutants inside the vehicle as they may contribute to the health and awareness of the driver.

In addition, there is a growing trend towards the use of carbon dioxide as the refrigerant gas used in air conditioning systems, a leakage of this gas could cause drowsiness and ultimately asphyxiation.

SGX Sensortech is a market leading provider of intelligent air quality sensing systems which allow the manufacturer of vehicles to respond to deterioration of air quality and either warn the driver or address it by use of the air conditioning system.
