Analysis on Benefits of an Adaptive Kalman Filter Active Vehicle Suspension 981120

This paper presents the algorithm for a Kalman filter active vehicle suspension design. Based on simulations, two main issues have been investigated, (a) the effects of disturbances from the changes in road input and the variations of vehicle parameters on state observer estimation, (b) the benefits of adaptation of an active suspension to the changes of road input and the variations of vehicle parameters. Simulations showed the significant vehicle performance improvement from adaptation to road input; however, an adaptive Kalman filter is not very necessary.
