The aim of this article is to summarize some of the results of a study of a driver’s seat with an electro-pneumatic active suspension utilizing a pneumatic spring and a proportional electro-pneumatic transducer. Discussion of the system’s simplified mathematical description is followed by a short explanation of the full scale dummy driver’s seat with active pneumatic suspension and discussion of some experimental results.
