A Sensor and Process Fault Detection System for Vehicle Suspension Systems 2002-01-0135

Fault detection is increasingly an essential part of vehicle development. Integrating such fault detection subsystems raises the reliability, maintainability, and safety of automobile components. Weak shock absorbers can lead to significantly longer braking distances (up to 20%) and furthermore worsen the driving handling. Reduced tire pressure increases the wear of the tire dramatically and may lead to punctures due to an overheating of the tire. Recent studies show that 40% of all drivers have set wrong tire pressures (Wachter, 1994). Therefore, this paper presents fault detection algorithms for the suspension system implemented on a Hitachi SH7055 microcontroller. Real measurements of a vehicle are made to proof the algorithms.
