Technology that defies gravity.
The beating heart of ClearMotion is the Activalve, a software-centric, electro-hydraulic device that lives on every corner of the car, constantly monitoring, processing and responding to road conditions.
Each Activalve consists of three highly advanced components working together at sub-millisecond timescales. When the Digital Controller detects a potential disturbance it only takes five milliseconds for the Activalve’s motor to counteract it by exacting pressure on the damper.
The Activalve is designed to mount on the side of all standard shock absorbers, its components aligning with the twin-tube and tri-tube systems that dominate high volume car platforms. For ClearMotion to enable the smart actuator, only minimal modification to the body and chassis are needed.
A system of four Activalves creates what we call the Digital Chassis. Connected by a central gateway, it collects road data and stores it in the cloud to be analyzed and instantaneously retrieved.
ClearMotion’s advanced operating system has an arsenal of resources. Using a precise, millimeter level HD map of the road surface ahead, advanced control theory algorithms continually adjust suspension parameters to enable the best ride possible. An additional layer of reinforcement learning algorithms continually learns the road’s profile, and your ride improves over time.
