In-Seat Ventillation and Supply for Personalised Comfort Control on board an Aircraft

Project description

Personalised climate control on airplanes

Indoor ventilation is a common passenger complaint onboard aircraft. Until now, passengers could only manipulate an air jet in the ceiling. The EU-funded project COCOON is developing a breakthrough active seat control system that will enable travellers to set their climate control and adjust air supply to their personal preference. It will add less than a kilogramme in weight without compromising seat space. What’s more, passengers will be able to set their preferences via a tablet or a smartphone. Personalised in-flight climate control will improve individual travel experience without inconveniencing other passengers.
