With The M2 Reflex, simplicity was the
main goal. CMC set out to explore the viability of
designing a microprocessor-controlled active suspension system for
competition mountain bikes. Active suspension in this sense refers
to the ability to sense the terrain being travelled over and to make
adjustments to the suspension settings that benefit the rider.
The focus of the project was to build a digital
system that is capable of controlling a bike suspension system. The M2
Reflex is a working model of this concept.
In this project, Flash CPU programming and
Analog Circuit Design played major roles in the development of this
product. Practical applications of Control Systems,
Analog Circuit Design and Microprocessors were
implemented during this project.
