A PD+PI type fuzzy logic controller with sliding surface is presented in this study. This controller consists of two parts which are PD type and PI type fuzzy logic units. Inputs to those fuzzy logic units are the sliding surface functions and their derivatives. The integrated controller is applied to two degrees of freedom vehicle active suspension model. Both time and frequency domain analysis are evaluated. Numerical results demonstrate that the proposed controller improves the vibration isolation of the vehicle body, without causing a suspension degeneration problem and without degrading road holding very much.
