Third-generation MagneRide (Magnetorheological Fluid-based Vehicle Suspension System)
The MR fluid is a suspension of magnetically soft (easily, but temporarily magnetised) particles in a synthetic hydrocarbon base fluid.
Semi-active suspension using adaptive damping can overcome the limitations of passive dampers, providing much of the benefit of a fully active system without incurring the high cost and energy consumption penalties.
