Objectives:

The 'Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium' is a collaboration between a group of companies from the heavy truck industry and engineers from Cambridge University who have joined forces to develop better heavy goods vehicles.

Methodology:

The research concentrates on optimising existing suspension components and investigating advanced concept suspensions with computer-controlled 'active' and 'semi-active' elements. The work involves computer modelling, laboratory testing of prototype hardware and field trials of instrumented vehicles.
