“The car taught me to jump” over the bumps

Scientists have created innovative electromagnetic suspension Bose Suspension System, which allows the car to jump over obstacles.

Oddly enough, this system is was created 25 years ago, however, and today, it is deservedly a considerable share of admiration.
Besides that the car is built on the basis of electromagnetic pendants can be a jump over small obstacles, it also demonstrates unprecedented smooth ride, moving bumps in the road.

The engineers at Bose have managed to combine incompatible – excellent handling and phenomenal ride. For a good example of the demonstration of the suspension was taken two luxury sedan Lexus LS – in one (dark) was installed nominal wheel suspension and the second (white) – Bose Suspension System. The result exceeded all expectations.

If the dark Lexus and then roll on turns and when braking, that white was exactly like a glove. Even more spectacular looks the fare machines at the obstacle of “washing Board” – car Suspension System Bose is literally floating above the ground. And finally, the climax of the demonstration tests was the jumping over the beam on the road. Lexus LS over a meter from the obstacle “sits” on the rear “legs” and famously flies over the bar.
Automotive suspension Bose linear electromagnetic motor, the power amplifier at each wheel and a set of control algorithms.


Linear electromagnetic motor

Linear electromagnetic motor installed at each wheel. The motor has magnets and electromagnetic coils. When current is supplied to the coils, the motor reproduces the reciprocating motion, reducing or increasing the distance between the wheel and the vehicle body. One of the key advantages of an electromagnetic system is the speed.

Power amplifier

The power amplifier sends a signal to the motor after they received a signal from the control algorithm. Amplifiers created based on technology created by Dr. Bose in 1960, which led to the creation of Bose Corporation in 1964.
The generated power amplifiers is supplied and returns to a linear electromagnetic motor. For example, when the suspension Bose falls in a hole, the motor pulls the absorber, so that the car did not fail. When the car out of the pits, the motor reduces the output of the attenuator with the amp. Thus, the Bose suspension requires less than thirty percent of the energy consumed by a typical automotive air conditioning.

Control algorithms

The Bose suspension system is controlled by a system of mathematical algorithms obtained through 24 years of work. These algorithms work by tracking the measurement sensors, sending commands to the power amplifiers located in all corners of the car. Thus, this task is a smoother ride, eliminating rocking and rolls.
