Stability and Controlability of Vehicles for High Speed and High Traffic Permeability 660024
A general study of the basic requirements of vehicles for individual and public transportation systems leads to the belief that the incorporation of an active suspension system into the vehicle would constitute a major step forward. Various aspects of an active suspension system were scrutinized. Favorable results from an experimental test vehicle confirmed that belief. By incorporating the principle of an active suspension system, a narrow vehicle was proposed for commuter traffic; a utility vehicle for agriculture and military application; and a monorail vehicle for public transportation as well as for super high-speed intercity transportation.
