Title (EN) METHOD AND APARRATUS FOR CONTROLLING A SEMI-ACTIVE SUSPENSION SYSTEM FOR MOTORCYCLES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF SERVANT À COMMANDER UN SYSTÈME DE SUSPENSION SEMI-ACTIF POUR DES DEUX-ROUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and an apparatus for controlling a semi-active suspension system (1) for motorcycles are described. According to the present invention, the damping forces applied to controllable force generators (2, 3), such as controllable shock absorbers, provided to the front and the rear semi-active suspensions of a motorcycle are jointly controlled. In particular, the pitch velocity (Vp) of the suspended mass (Ms) is taken into account so as to jointly control the front and rear suspension systems of a motorcycle. The present invention allows the optimization of the global adherence of the motorcycle to the road surface and of the driving and the travelling comfort of the vehicle.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif servant à commander un système de suspension semi-actif (1) pour des véhicules deux-roues. Selon l'invention, les forces d'amortissement appliquées à des générateurs de force (2, 3) pouvant être commandés, tels que des amortisseurs situés au niveau des suspensions semi-actives avant et arrière d'un deux-roues, sont commandées conjointement. La vitesse d'inclinaison (Vp) de la masse en suspension (Ms) est tout particulièrement prise en considération, de manière à commander conjointement les systèmes de suspension avant et arrière du deux-roues. L'invention permet d'optimiser l'adhérence globale du deux-roues à la surface de la route, ainsi que son confort de conduite et de déplacement.
