The objective of this paper is to discuss the temperature environment model of automobile's passenger compartments for the analysis of comfortableness and the design of air-conditioning control. To consider the comfortableness, it is necessary to model the distribution of the temperature since almost all the people do not feel the uniform temperature environment to be comfortable. In this paper, we construct the dynamical model of the temperature environment by piecewise modeling technique in which the passenger compartment is divided into plural areas to consider the temperature distribution. And then we verify the performance of the model by comparing the simulation results of the model with experimental results.
