CDC® eliminates the trade-off between comfort and stability in the cabin. It solves the conflicting demands for higher suspension and damping comfort on the one hand, and for good cabin stability while accelerating, braking and cornering on the other.
The damping forces are adjusted to the optimum level within milliseconds on the basis of data provided by the vehicle's sensors. At straight-ahead driving on averagequality roads, the electronics reduces damping forces.
As a result, cabin suspension is soft and comfortable. As soon as excitation of the cabin changes due to lane changes, braking maneuvers, or gear shifts, CDC® keeps the cabin stable by increasing damping forces.
The system also contributes to fuel efficiency by enabling shorter gear-shifting times and reducing tractive force interruption without compromising ride comfort, e.g. due to stronger cabin pitch.
With CDC® most of the vibration can be isolated. Enhanced acoustics, reduced human-relevant vibrations, and controlled cabin movements lead significantly to a more ergonomic workplace.
