Bose Ride system driver’s seat

Updated Jul 17, 2012

The Bose Ride system driver’s seat senses cab vibrations and neutralizes them with high-speed adjustments to the seat’s suspension.

Packed in to the seat’s base are sensors, a microprocessor, power amplifier, linear electromagnetic actuator and energy storage system. Together, these components reduce “whole body” vibration by 90 percent, the company says. To handle the system’s power needs, engineers reduced the electrical demand by designing the system to be regenerative.
