Concept of fully hydraulic-mechanical shock absorber system sensitive to load, dedicated to motorcycle and of general applicability to road transport means

Objective



The objective of the project is the obtention of Rear shock-absorber for road vehicles, and motorcycles in particular, featured by variable hydraulic and automatic self-adjusting calibration related to the transported load and, whenever possible, sensitive to acceleration. The aim of the research consists in the development of a technology able to supply a self-powered trim control and an advanced shock absorbition law that does not need any computer-aided device or a hydraulic power supply external to the shock absorber. Obtention of Rear shock-absorber for road vehicles, and motor-cycles in particular, featured by variable hydraulic and automatic self-adjusting calibration related to the transported load and sensitive to acceleration. In particular future Brite - Euram collaborative research project intends to develop a technology based on the: - automation of load variation on the suspension by pneumatic set of pre-load (in motor-cycles the purpose is to optimise the front - back trim); - automatic hardening of the suspension according to the weight; - whenever possible, development, and coupling to the above principles, of a suspension sensitive to the vehicle acceleration.
