A Ford Transit Connect equipped with continuous damping control (CDC) dampers and a double pinion active steering system is being used by Ford Otosan (Turkey) for research on active chassis control. The dSPACE system (MicroAutoBox and RapidPro) is used for implementing the active chassis controller. The research vehicle has a semi-active suspension controller that works in coordination with the steering controller for improved ride and handling characteristics. The dSPACE system allows easy modification of the control algorithms being tested.
