A Novel Design of a Suspension System for Omni-Directional Electric Vehicles
This paper is to present a new semi-suspension that is designed for Omni-directional four wheels-driven electric vehicles. With the use of band spring and lower cross arm this kind of suspension is characterized by the simply and compactly structure, flexible steering and better loading capacity. A prototype is designed and built based on the geometric model and mathematical description using Matlab.
