Independent Suspension System Templates

This example includes templates for three common types of automotive independent suspension systems: double wishbone, MacPherson, and pushrod. Tires attached to the suspension systems are mounted on platforms that can independently move up and down. Each platfom has a PD controller that allows it to simulate a desired road profile. For a given pair of road profiles, the resultant roll and bounce of the chassis can be studied and the suspension parameters can be tuned for optimal performance.
