SUSPENSION AND MOTION CONTROL

SUSPENSION AND MOTION CONTROL

Our first principles approach to suspension design and vehicle dynamics challenges coupled with our experience means we can carry out assessments of existing designs or produce whole new design solutions.

Our latest simulation tools allow us to understand characteristics of components and the behaviour of whole vehicles before physical testing is required, saving time and programme cost. We can iterate and tune designs to ensure significant design refinement before any metal is cut.

Whether on mass volume passenger cars, military off-road vehicles or even commercial aircraft undercarriages, we can rapidly design entire new systems or change the usage profile of existing platforms.

CASE STUDIES

With the ability to bring together multi-skilled engineering teams in agile teams for individual projects, we have proven time and again our ability to deliver projects that exceed the client’s requirements.

Read about some of our previous work related to this field of engineering below.

8X8 MILITARY VEHICLE SUSPENSION

A programme, to investigate and develop a chassis/suspension system for military vehicles which require a paradigm shift in capability to meet future generation platform targets, was completed in just 78 days.

ACTIVE SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY

In order for ClearMotion's active suspension technology to be fitted to various OEMs’ models as demonstrators, Prodrive were drafted in to redesign and fit the OEM parts without compromising performance.

HYPERCAR ACTIVE AERO SYSTEMS

A hypercar manufacturer needed to develop their existing design into a fully working electro-hydraulic system but had extremely tight space constraints and deadlines.
