The controllers for a full car 7-DOF model with 4 active or semi-active suspension units are designed and evaluated in this research. The control algorithms for suspension systems, such as full state feedback active, full state feedback semi-active, sky-hook active, sky-hook semi-actvie, and on-off suspension systems, are analyzed and evaluated with respect to ride comfort. The vehicle dynamic performances are expressed by response curves to a bump input, performance indices for asphalt road input, and frequency characteristic curves. Heaving, rolling, and pitching inputs are applied to the vehicle dynamic system to evaluate frequency characteristics. The simulation results show that the ride quality of the sky-hook controller approaches that the full state feedback controller more closely in semi-active suspension system than in active suspension system. For the implementation of a vehicle with sky-hook suspension control systems in this paper, 7 velocity sensors are required to measure the states.
