Cooling and AC units in cars haven't changed much since they were brought to the automotive industry, and efficiency has greatly suffered because of that. We decided to look towards a device where the cooling system is constantly updated and innovated, the computer industry. After searching for some time, we found our solution.
Recent computers use a copper foam heat-sink that absorbs heat from the device and then dissipates it into the air, a method that can easily be reversed. If copper foam is so great at absorbing heat from a physical object, than we can allow it to soak up the heat from air as it is blown inside the vehicle by cooling the copper foam. We use a Peltier device to absorb the heat in the air being blown in through a HEPA filter and dissipate it outside the vehicle. In doing so, we found an efficient way to physically remove heat from the cabin air while taking in fresh, cool air, and thus, we came up with the first ever Thermal Energy Discharge Instrument or TEDI for Vehicles.
But it is still an idea.
For now, we still don't have enough research to develop TEDI. Peltier devices are far too inefficient and high energy consuming, so we need to either make Peltier devices more efficient or find a better cooling method. We also have to wait until we have a final schematic for the body before we can design the TEDI, but we still wanted to show it to the public and get your opinion. If you have an idea on how to make this idea a reality, pleas don't hesitate to contact us.
