Abstract

The objective of this project was to design a dynamic suspension system that minimizes the vertical oscillations of the vehicle's body regardless of different road conditions. A series of five modules were designed to achieve this goal. The modules generate a force similar to the effects of an uneven road that creates oscillations in the vehicle's body. The vertical velocity of the body was calculated and processed through a controller to achieve the required signal to suppress these oscillations. This process was implemented through the use of electromagnetic circuitry.
