This study has proposed a method of improving vehicle ride quality capitalizing on repetitive driving. When the vehicle is driving over the same road features repetitively, a drive-history map is created, and an optimal suspension profile is generated for that road feature. When it is detected that the vehicle is travelling over the same road feature again, the optimized suspension profile is applied to correct any disturbance preemptively to optimize passengers’ experiences. The algorithm is implemented on a full-car model using Carsim, and simulation results are obtained to identify any improvements.
