Patent application: Cooling system for vehicle interior surfaces

Ben Welter - Sunday, August 12, 2018

U.S. patent application 20180222517 (applicant Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc., Erlanger, Ky.):

"A vehicle component includes a first volume of phase change material and a second volume of phase change material spaced apart from the first volume of phase change material. The first volume of phase change material contains a greater mass of phase change material than the second volume of phase change material. The component also includes a thermally-conductive structure in direct contact with both the first volume of phase change material and the second volume of phase change material, so as to facilitate heat transfer between the first volume of phase change material and the second volume of phase change material."
