Chief Investigators Professor Haiping Du and Dr Shuaishuai Sun, both from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences, are developing suspension and advanced control techniques that have the potential to improve vehicle safety by reducing the prevalence of accidents, injuries and fatalities caused by unstable vehicle motion such as loss of handling and traction control and rollovers.

“The project aims to develop an innovative, electromagnetically interconnected suspension system to enhance vehicle ride comfort, stability and handling dynamics, and therefore the safety of electrified vehicles,” Prof Du said.

The project, titled Electromagnetically Interconnected Suspension for Electrified Vehicles, has been awarded $320,000 over three years and is broken down into three key parts.
