Benchmarking of Wheel Corner Concepts Towards Optimal Comfort by Automated Driving

Project description

Self-driving cars are just around the corner

Cars have four corners, the area where the wheels are basically mounted. A vehicle’s ride comfort and handling capabilities are mainly determined by its suspension system, which keeps the car’s wheels in contact with the road. The same applies for future self-driving cars. The EU-funded OWHEEL project will produce recommendations for improving ride dynamics and passenger comfort through innovative wheel-corner designs for automated vehicles. The project will draw on collaborative research and training between universities and industrial organisations from the EU, Japan and South Africa. It will also include relevant networking, dissemination and exploitation actions.
