The innovative shock absorber system from Audi: New technology saves fuel and enhances comfort
- Horizontally arranged electric motors replace telescopic shock absorbers
- Future system enables energy recuperation in the suspension
- Electromechanical rotary dampers increase ride comfort
In the mobility of the future, the recuperation of energy plays an increasingly important role, including in a car’s suspension. Audi is working on a prototype called “eROT,” in which electromechanical rotary dampers replace the hydraulic dampers used today for an even more comfortable ride.
