Definitions for "Active Suspension"
A computerized suspension system that uses powered actuators. The actuators position a car's wheels in the best possible manner to deal with road and load.
Active wheel suspension is used to control the driving height of the racing cars, but has been banned in Formula One since 1993 when the FIA started a technical streamlining process to ensure a level playing field for the teams. The ban was also intended to reduce costs and re-establish the primacy of driver skill.
Controls ride height during a race and are controlled by a software aligned to each track, which helps to raise the downforce by suction under the car.
