Racecar handling depends on the balanced set up of the suspension. Whether the vehicle has the traditional four springs and four dampers arrangement, mono-shocks or electronically adjustable hydraulic actuators, which are used in active suspension systems, race engineers need to measure precise suspension movement. The sensors are traditionally mounted across the dampers or connected to the rocker arm. In 'active suspension' systems the sensors are normally mounted internally within the hydraulic actuator. Data acquisition engineers monitor suspension movement during testing and free practice and make suspension adjustments accordingly, as they continually look for a competitive set up. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for suspension movement monitoring.
