The goal was to create a dynamic driving experience that improved on-road comfort. Don't worry if you don't, it was announced some 14 years ago and despite the tech looking extremely promising, nothing really came of it.
Best of all, it could actually hop over obstacles. Bose got as far as developing prototype cars that were exhibited inthough it did bring to market an offshoot, electromagnetically suspended seats for long-haul truck drivers. Bose Ride System seat for long-haul truck drivers uses a similar electromagnetic suspension.
In the Bose Ride seat, precision sensors detect up-and-down motion. Bose initially asked the public to think of the tech as doing to the car what noise-canceling headphones did for the audio space. Project Sound was not just damping the roadway bumps but actively counteracting them.
It was designed to read the road ahead of you and determine, for example, where a pothole might be for your front wheel to drop into. ClearMotion's system is much more compact ClearMotion And while Bose felt the tech was most appropriate for high-end luxury cars with sporty handling aspirations, ClearMotion seems to be refocusing things toward a future mass market: autonomous cars.
Bose called them linear electromagnetic motors and power amplifiers. S-based engineering and tech startup.
Ina limited-run of cars will be fitted with the technology before it heads out to a larger vehicle pool in
