Suspension Monitoring and Pre-Failure Detection System (SMPDS)Suspension Monitoring and Pre-Failure Detection System (SMPDS)

Intended to be fitted to vehicles with passive suspension, this device monitors the state of the suspension. Accelerometers and strain gauges are used to measure the damping effect and material strain respectively. Any suspension faults are communicated through a dashboard display.

The course has launched my design career by providing me with a broad understanding of engineering principles and career opportunities.
