Sensor Calibration Technique and Check Method for Active Damper System

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.19 No.1


An active damper system is an electronically controlled damping force suspension system. Technology for calibrating the sensor of this system and a method of checking its operation were developed. The wheel stroke position is calibrated when the wheels are moved up and down by driving the vehicle over a bump, and the operation of the sensors is checked simultaneously. The sensors were calibrated and their operations were checked within a few seconds without the need of any dedicated equipment.
