Climatic measurements with electric buses of the BVG

Climatic measurements were performed on November 23rd and 25th by the faculty MPM in the new electric buses of the BVG on the Berlin bus lines 200 and 300. The goal was to identify optimal inner room temperature settings to guarantee good passenger thermal comfort and at the same time reduced energy consumption due to heating (and therefore increased bus autonomy). For the measurements of the climatic parameters, the buses were equipped with sensor stations developed by MPM. Additionally, surveys were carried out to empirically assess the thermal well-being of the passengers.
