This paper presents a hybrid fuzzy controller structure to improve ride comfort-road holding trade-off characteristics of a full vehicle active suspension system. The controller includes two interval type-2 fuzzy logic controllers, optimized for ride comfort and road holding, for each tire. Type C random road profiles according to ISO 8608 are applied to each tire in the model and ride index, road holding, crest factor, and RMS acceleration values are evaluated. Stability of the overall closed loop system is presented by phase plane analysis. The simulation results reveal that simultaneous improvement of ride index and road holding can be made possible with the proposed controller. (C) 2020 Karabuk University.
