11:10 AM Panel discussion | Control of active and semi-active suspension systems

The demand for advanced suspension technology has increased as there is promise for more
cost effective solutions. Semi –active suspensions are fully developed and widely accepted at
present. New advanced technologies are arising and premium car OEMs are coming out with
new features. In this panel the experts will discuss this trend and focus on such questions as:
• What are the real drivers of these technologies?
• Is there a real need for advanced systems such as 3-chamber air suspension or active
anti-roll bars?
• Discussing market trends, end-user expectations and future demand
• Who will have the system responsibility in the future, the OEM or the Tier 1 supplier?

2:00 PM Investigating control of active chassis systems

Vertical tyre force vectoring, i.e., an alternative method to achieve the cornering response
benefits typical of torque vectoring control
• Torque vectoring have been widely demonstrated in vehicles equipped with controllable
differentials or braking systems
• Presentation of a novel way of continuous direct yaw moment control
• Vehicle dynamics benefits generated by active suspension systems
