the knuckle on a strut-type suspension is mounted on the shock absorber.
Sometime they are referred to as Macpherson strut. Strut type front
suspension became popular on production cars in the 70's because they
offered a simple and inexpensive configuration that doesn't take up much
space. It is particularly well-suited to front-wheel-drive production cars,
because it allows room for thr front drive-axle to pass through the front
hub. Most of today's small cars use this type of front suspension, because
it is inexpensive and gives a fairly good ride quality with the compact
dimension needed for front-wheel-drive cars.
DISADVANTAGE. Except where it might be required by the race-sanstioning
bodies in production-based classes, such as showroom stock, it probably
won't be used on many race cars. One of the problems with a strut-type
front suspension on a race car is that there isn't much room for wide tires
and wheels without increasing the scrub radius. Increasing the scrub radius
causes a big increase in the side loading of the sliding members, which
cause bending and higher friction loads. Another problem that concerns
racers is that there is little camber gain possible with this type of front
suspension, the swing arm lengh is reasonable and the roll center height
and swing arm lengh, the lack of sufficient camber gain keeps this type of
front suspension design from being suitable for race cars.
Another problem with a strut-type front suspension is that it requires a
high cowl heigh to provide sufficient room for the tops of the struts. This
can be a problem when building a low-profile race car. Honda has quit using
strut-type suspension on its production cars for these same reason. They
apparently feel that it is worth the increase cost to equip their car with
superior double A-arm type of suspension.
Strut-type front suspension is used on some low-cost cars that offer high
performance, but it is done to reduce cost, not for any handling advantage.

Mercedes Future Truck 2025 autonomously driving truck premiere - Autogefühl
Here we are showing you some impressions of the Mercedes Future Truck 2025
concept, an autonomously driving truck which now had its premiere. Showing
you driving, exterior, interior as well as special situations the truck has
to react to.
More information from Mercedes:
Efficiency, safety and connectivity– the Future Truck 2025 revolutionises
the key elements of goods transport
Future Truck 2025 – Perfect synthesis of technology and design
Daimler Trucks strengthens technological leadership
Blind Spot Assist important step to accident-free driving
Daimler Trucks invests 1 bln. Euro per year into research and development
Dr Wolfgang Bernhard: "Our Future Truck 2025 provides compelling answers to
the challenges that our customers will be facing in the future. Our aim
therefore is to press forward with readying this technology for the market
and to bring it to series-production standard. I am convinced that this
will open up a whole new business perspective for Daimler Trucks."
The technology of tomorrow is already a reality at Daimler Trucks, in the
shape of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. The autonomously driving
truck was presented on the eve of the 65th International Motor Show for
commercial vehicles in Hanover, Germany. Its perfect synthesis of
technology and design means: The Future Truck 2025 is more than simply a
new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will
be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.

► Mercedes Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.
