Semi-active Suspension Control provides an overview of vehicle ride control employing smart semi-active damping systems. These systems are able to tune the amount of damping in response to measured vehicle-ride and handling indicators. Two physically different dampers (magnetorheological and controlled-friction) are analysed from the perspectives of mechatronics and control. Ride comfort, road holding, road damage and human-body modelling are studied. Mathematical modelling is balanced by a large and detailed section on experimental implementation, where a variety of automotive applications are described offering a well-rounded view. The implementation of control algorithms with regard to real-life engineering constraints is emphasised. The applications described include semi-active suspensions for a saloon car, seat suspensions for vehicles not equipped with a primary suspension, and control of heavy-vehicle dynamic-tyre loads to reduce road damage and improve handling.The system is fitted on a few vehicles including some Cadillac models (Imaj, Seville, SRX, XLR, STS, DTS), the ... All the main control techniques developed in the past 30 years have been applied to the problem of controlling vehicle suspensions. ... (2000). The driving conditions in a car change greatly depending upon Introduction 5 1.3 Active and Semi-active Suspensions in the Scientific Literature.
