The objective of this paper is to improve the passenger ride comfort and safety in an active quarter car model. For this purpose, a quarter car model with passenger body and seat is considered to capture the dynamic behaviour of a real complete car system. To achieve the desired target, two different controllers such as Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy (ANFIS) controller and Hybrid ANFIS PID controller (HANFISPID) are designed. The controllers selection and design was aimed to achieve good passenger ride comfort and health, taking passenger body acceleration and displacement response under random road excitations. The performance of designed controllers are evaluated using simulation work in time and frequency domain. Simulation results show that the proposed HANFISPID control scheme can succesfully achieve the desired ride comfort and safety of passenger compared to passive and ANFIS controlled cases in an active quarter car model.
