Cover Story (view full-size image): A setup is built representing a downscaled active car suspension application based on a widely available theoretical full-car suspension model. This setup mimics the behavior of a car driving on a realistic road surface in which active suspension components can counteract vibrations of a central platform representing a car body to maximize the driver's comfort. The actuators consist of servomotors from which a rotational torque is converted to a linear force through an electromechanical cylinder. The laboratory test setup allows the examination of a wide variety of different hardware and control aspects. Therefore, this setup is an excellent validation case for a novel methodology to simultaneously co-design the hardware architecture and control configuration for interacting systems. View this paper.
