In this paper a fuzzy logic proportional derivative controller is proposed for suppressing vertical vibrations of vehicles. Initially quarter vehicle model is presented. Afterwards fuzzy proportional derivative approach is described in order to minimize vertical displacement of vehicle body. The proposed controller is applied to quarter vehicle model to demonstrate and evaluate performance of the controller. Time responses of vehicle body displacement, acceleration and suspension deflection are compared between controlled and uncontrolled cases. The proposed controller exhibits promising behavior.
