In this study an active controller is presented for
vibration suppression of a full-bus model. The bus is modeled having
seven degrees of freedom. Using the achieved model via Lagrange
Equations the system equations of motion are derived. The
suspensions of the bus model include air springs with two auxiliary
chambers are used. Fuzzy logic controller is used to improve the ride
comfort. The numerical results, verifies that the presented fuzzy logic
controller improves the ride comfort.
