:Analysis and control design of advanced suspension systemsAbstract:
A common trend in every area of life, as workplace, university, recreation areas etc..., is the continuous effort to improve people comfort and safety. The most of us spend a significant part of their life within wheeled vehicles; in fact, a recent study, conducted by AAA Foundation for Traffic safety reports that an average US citizen drives more than 300 hours per years. For this reason, the pursuit of safety and comfort is over amplified in the automotive field. In wheeled vehicles the suspension system plays a key role in achieving comfort and safety. In the last decades, many industrial and academics researchers explored the possibility to overcome the ntrinsic limitation of a passive suspension by means of electronically controlled suspension systems. My research belongs to this research field, I focus on the control design of several advanced suspension systems aiming to improve comfort and safety.
