Shock absorber is a very important part of cars. The goal of this MQP is to build an intelligent oscillator for the dynamic shock absorber which to determine the acceleration, velocity and the distance traveled by a given oscillating object. This research project utilizes various tools such as library books, simulations, internet and assistance from MQP advisor, colleagues and friends. With the knowledge gained from this experience we will be better equipped to tackle almost any area of the electrical and computer engineering and any issues that might arise during our careers.
