robust control, active suspension, sliding mode control
This study considers a passenger seat mounted half vehicle model using sliding mode control. Three cases are taken into account: a model having passive suspension and an active passenger seat, an active suspension and passive seat combination, and both an active passenger seat and suspension. Bouncing of the passenger due to road input, which is commonly used to slow the vehicles at intersections, is simulated in three cases and the results are compared to select the best combination providing the best ride comfort.
