ACTIVE SUSPENSIONS FOR GROUND TRANSPORT VEHICLES - A STATE OF THE ART REVIEW

This paper surveys the state-of-the-art in ground transport vehicle active suspension development and research. The advantages and disadvantages of active suspensions are discussed. Suspension performance criteria and techniques for design and optimization of active suspensions are reviewed. Applications of active suspensions in automotive, rail and tracked levitated air cushion and magnetic suspensions are cited. Finally current and future directions of active suspension research are discussed.
