A joint project between DaimlerChrysler Research and Technology and the company’s advanced engineering truck group developed a mechatronic truck seat system. The system aims to reduce the annoying vibration that truck drivers are subjected to while driving. A dSPACE prototyping system based on a DS1005 PPC Board provided fast results for developing and verifying a prototype of the controller. And since the seat system is modular in design, the basic seat model can be reused in multiple ways, which cuts down on the number of different parts.
