Mercedes-Benz - bifunctional air suspension system (AirmaticDCSystem) to take the initiative to control air suspension and adaptive damping suspension system (ADSII) integrated together to achieve a double control (DualControl).
The so-called dual control, I mean AirmaticDC both hardware and software to achieve the spring of internal air pressure and the intensity of control. On the one hand, the current road conditions, driving style and vehicle load conditions to control the intensity of shock absorber, and then to the expansion of rubber filled with compressed air, to ensure that vehicles must comfort; Also under the current driving conditions to control rubber spring of the air capacity, and air state of activity to control the hardness of the spring, thus enhancing comfort at the same time enhancing the handling characteristics.
In addition, AirmaticDC air suspension systems can also be ground under the wheels of the impact of acceleration itself out. For example, high-speed turns, the wheels of the lateral air springs and dampers will automatically stiffen, to reduce the body roll in emergency braking, the electronic module will be on the front springs and shock absorbers to reduce the hardness to strengthen the body inertia tip forward. This is not only to control the car with a higher limit and comfort, but also further improve the safety performance.
Concern is also AirmaticDC air suspension movements traditional technologies into one chassis. A car traveling at high speed, body height will be automatically reduced, thereby improving the performance affixed to ensure good high-speed driving stability and reduce wind resistance and fuel consumption. Slowly through the bumpy roads, the chassis will be automatically increased to improve performance through. According to the application of the technology on the E-Class sedan data show that when speed higher than 140 km, will automatically lower body 15mm to ensure driving stability, and when the speed down to 70 km, the body is back to normal.
