    Is there an ability for the vehicle to activate the Bio Defense mode automatically?

    Imagine putting some sort of sensor near the front of the car, or by the air-intake valve. If it detects a certain concentration of noxious odor / pollutant, then it will immediately activate the HEPA filter mode, tuning it back off when it is all clear again. I know how many times that I drove across the path of a skunk (ok, it is not dangerous, just bad smelling) or something and it is already too late when I detect the smell inside to activate recirculate on my current ICE.
