Active Suspension


 

An Active Suspension is an electronic-controlled type suspension system that raises or lowers the ride height to improve the performance and towing capability of the vehicle. It works by continuously sensing changes in the road surface and relaying this information to the outlying components through the ECU. With improved computer control, the driver can alter numerous options of suspension travel and reaction while driving. Depending on the input choices, the system elevates or lowers the body, keeps the chassis level, and absorbs the energy associated with the vertical motion of the wheels efficiently as possible for improved handling in all sorts of terrain. Active suspension is also known as computerized ride control and uses hydraulics or electromagnets to operate. In the active suspensions that adjust hydraulically, sensors are responsible for monitoring the movement and ride height of the vehicle. When the system needs to modify performance or ride height, it activates a hydraulic pump that pressurizes the liquid in the shocks. This process will also adjust the suspension firmness and the ride height following the desired preferences. On the other hand, an electromagnetic-controlled active suspension functions similarly to a hydraulically-controlled system. The only difference is that instead of pumps, these system alters the ride height using electromagnet motors. More importantly, this system is known for responding faster and using less energy than hydraulic suspension. Thus, changing the riding state of the vehicle depending on the terrain or driver preferences improves handling, road feel, reactivity, aSuspension is an electronic-controlled type suspension system that raises or lowers the ride height to improve the performance and towing capability of the vehicle.
