Problem statement

Vertical vehicle dynamics have a major influence on ride comfort and safety. Heave, pitch and roll motions of the vehicle body get sensed by the driver and are in charge of the subjective evaluation of driving characteristics. (Semi-)Active chassis control systems enable impact on the vertical vehicle dynamics and solve the trade-off between ride safety and comfort. An integral an connected control strategy combines all available information about driving condtions, environment conditions and the driver's request to control the installed active chassis systems.


Already various combinations of chassis control systems are integrated in series. The number of combinations will be increased by new (semi-)active systems. Besides informations of the internal vehicle sensors, additional data of Car2Car and Car2X applications as well as autonomous driving trajectories will be available in the future. The integral and connected control strategy should optimally combine the potentials of all available informations and installed active chassis systems for different configurations. The aim is to improve ride safety, ride comfort and efficiency, while reducing development, testing and validation volume.
