DC_Control - Suspension

Specifically designed to implement patented e-Shock solution to optimally manage the damping in two, three and four wheeled vehicles.

The device handles the inputs from external sensors used to monitor the vehicle attitude, the chassis and suspensions dynamics, and the driver maneuvers. Thanks to this set of information, processed by e-Shock algorithms, the device drives up to 8 electro-hydraulic valves or 4 magnetorheological dampers.
