I’m a Mechatronic Engineer graduated at the National University of Engineering (UNI) of Peru. I got my Master and Doctor degree at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). In addition, I spent nearly one year at the Labor Mehrkörpersimulation within the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH Regensburg) in Germany. Here, I worked as research assistant dealing with vehicle and tire dynamics, and control systems. Using this personal site, I would like to share my current research, publications in congress and journals as well as some posts about road vehicles, suspension systems, active safety system (e.g. ABS, ESP and 4WS), tire dynamics and self-driving cars.

Description The suspension is an important mechanical system in road vehicles. A typical suspension system consist in links, control arms, bushing, spring, damper and bump-stop. The rigid parts, i.e. links and control arms determine the kinematic of the suspension and the force elements, i.e. spring, damper and bump-stop define the forces that the suspension, with a generalize motion (road irregularities), will apply to the chassis. We can see on Fig. 1, some common suspension systems in passenger cars.
