Advanced ground clearance technique using sensors based jack lifting

Keywords: Automatic Ground Clearance, Motor, Pneumatic Cylinder, Wheels


The vehicle's handling is influenced by a number of factors, one of which is the vehicle's centre of gravity. We need to keep the vehicle's centre of gravity as low as feasible for optimal handling. A sedan or hatchback, on the other hand, must travel on both smooth and rugged terrains due to its fixed lower ground clearance, which might cause dents in the car's bottom half. To get optimal performance in both circumstances, the vehicle must have an adjustable ground clearance system. The majority of commercial cars on the road today use a passive suspension system, while some luxury manufacturers may already have adaptive suspension. Active suspension systems, on the other hand, are uncommon, but they have the ability to minimize the gap in the well-known ride-comfort-handling trade-off. Aside from that, they can be utilised to alleviate single-event disturbances, which is a goal of the US army, as stated in a solicitation that sparked and prompted this study. Furthermore, various research describing the impact and risk of potholes on vehicles and passengers have been discovered. The constructed model of a "pneumatic jack" comprises of a pneumatic control valve that regulates air flow and a double acting cylinder that acts as a jack for lifting.
