The purpose of this paper is to propose an alternative approach on controlling of vehicle vibrations by using active tuned mass damper. The approach is presented by simulation of a quarter-car model. Initially, a tuned mass damper is integrated on a vehicle model and its optimal parameters are determined by using 3D diagram of the maximum magnitudes of the sprung mass frequency response functions. Active control is obtained by adding an actuator element parallel to tuned mass damper. The fuzzy-sliding mode control method is utilized in reducing the displacement and acceleration magnitudes of sprung mass. Finally, comparison of active and passive responses in frequency and time domain are given to demonstrate vibration control improvement.
