Magneti Marelli Suspensions Systems has developed an innovative oscillation damping system called.
By controlling the shock absorbers, the Synaptic Damping Control reduces oscillations of the vehicle body under all driving conditions, thus ensuring the highest levels of safety, comfort and handling.
By means of special sensors, the system can identify the current driving scenario and roadway conditions, then chooses the most suitable control laws accordingly. One of these laws is the “Sky Hook”, which isolates the passenger compartment and makes it ideally stable in case of outside disturbances.
Thanks to an electronic control unit featuring high calculating power and to accurate solenoid valves capable of providing an immediate answer, controls are applied in real time, neutralising and solving any problems caused by rough road conditions as they arise.
Even in case of sports driving, the system can assist the driver by increasing manageability and manoeuvring accuracy, without being forced to give up high comfort standards.
