Variant Stream

Introduction

Welcome. Our senior design project is a vehicle with an unconventional suspension design. The suspension is designed to reduce the lateral acceleration that the driver feels while cornering while increasing traction and efficiency. It will do this by leaning into the curve, instead of away as all vehicles now do, by way of an innovative double suspension system. The primary suspension controls the vehicle tilting during cornering and the secondary suspension absorbs the energy from road surface bumps.
