A model for an active suspension system

Multidisciplinary systems

Designing and building a small-scale vehicle simulator, which is intended to be used as a test and development system.
The model is an active suspension control system based on General Motors vehicles.
The system includes the following subsystems:
an active suspension system, a remotely-controlled automatic and manual steering, and a sensor and data logging system which monitors the vehicle’s movement and its suspension system.
