Beyond the basic efficiency of electric propulsion, physics isn’t always kind to electric vehicles (EVs). Indeed, one of the most significant operational challenges for EVs is temperature management of numerous components such as permanent magnets, batteries, motors, and power electronics, all of which have a preferred range of operating temperatures. Many kinds of sensors, both active and passive, are employed to meet those systems requirements.

But in many parts of the world, the most challenging temperature control problem is providing sufficient heat to keep windows defrosted and vehicle inhabitants reasonably comfortable. It’s a challenge that relies on sensor technology as well as a growing list of approaches to generating heat.
