Humidity Sensor

A special sensor system reduces misting-up of the windows and enhances comfort by managing the humidity levels inside your car. From the data delivered by the humidity and temperature sensor in the base of the interior mirror, the climate control unit calculates the dew point temperature of the air - that is, the temperature at which the air humidity would condense and cause misting. An infrared sensor remotely measures the radiated heat on the windscreen, and calculates the window temperature. To prevent the windows from misting up, the automatic air conditioning system regulates the air humidity.
