Bose electromagnetic suspension

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.

While we'd still like to see this hyper-active style of suspension in a car we can test and enjoy it in as drivers, it would be great to see an idea like this finally have its time in the mainstream spotlight. However, perhaps due to cost, no automaker seemed interested in what Bose called "Project Sound," and the tech was shelved. Project Sound was not just damping the roadway bumps but actively counteracting them. In , a limited-run of cars will be fitted with the technology before it heads out to a larger vehicle pool in It was acquired by a company called ClearMotion in ClearMotion's system is active, which means it sees what is coming up and pushes or pulls the wheels accordingly. That is, until now. The front-then-rear bumps were uncomfortable on the short road course in the stock Lexus and, amazingly, almost unnoticeable with the Bose suspension. Bose created a mathematical model of the suspension. Although it's worth noting that Audi's A8 from incorporated a system that sounds very similar and looked a lot more compact. Bose initially asked the public to think of the tech as doing to the car what noise-canceling headphones did for the audio space.

Bose called them linear electromagnetic motors and power amplifiers. S-based engineering and tech startup.
