Quanser Active Suspension Experiment

Controls Research Plant

Active Suspension Controls Research Plant—The Quanser Active Suspension Experiment teaches cutting-edge technology that has brought a new generation of vehicles to life. It consists of three plates that each slide along a stainless-steel shaft using linear bearings. Each plate is supported by a set of springs. The upper plate is connected to a high-quality DC motor through a capstan to emulate an active suspension system that can dynamically compensate for the motions introduced by the road. The lower plate is driven by a powerful DC motor connected to a lead screw and cable transmission system. Educators can use the Quanser Active Suspension Experiment to simulate different road profiles.
