Endurance tests of electronic suspension for motorcycles – a system approach
A test method for electronic suspensions for motorcycles has been developed and introduced in the industrial practice. This method bases on 2 poster rig tests using vehicle independent laser scans of road sequences. The motorcycle was fixed onto the 2 poster with several restraints. A failure detection check was developed to test the function of suspension and sensor. Suspension strokes and body accelerations measured at the 2 poster agree very well with independently measured road test data. Applications of this method are pointing towards operational strength of the semi-active suspensions, comparison between different suspension systems and testing of sensor malfunction.
