Vehicles instrument panel surface can become contaminated by the front occupants by breathing, talking and coughing. Air conditioning vent outlet airflow will pull air from the panel surface mixing it with potential contaminated air and deliver towards the occupants. Hence, it is necessary to ensure we have virus mitigating strategies to effectively remove viruses from the cabin from automobiles. This seminar consists of technical presentations outlining how the viruses spread in automotive and aircraft cabins using CFD analysis, experimental studies with new hardware designs to eliminate viruses from the automotive cabin; ASHRAE guidelines to address Covid-19.
