Suspension System Smooths The Roughest Rides And Roads

Cabin, a hospitality transportation company, unveils Cabin Cloud, what it claims is the first active suspension system designed specifically with passenger sleep in mind. Combining patent-pending software and hardware, Cabin Cloud mutes road turbulence and dramatically reduces vibration, effectively making the bumpiest highway roads feel like a smooth train ride.

How Cabin Cloud Works:

  • Cabin Cloud active suspension system is designed to work with low-cost and off-the-shelf hardware and sensors so that it can be installed underneath each personal bed at an economically viable cost-basis.
  • Using a combination of standard sensors and proprietary predictive control algorithms, Cabin Cloud actuates the below-the-berth motor with millisecond precision to achieve an average reduction in acceleration of 70% to 90% depending on the road.
  • When going over a bump, Cabin Cloud instantly responds by moving the guest’s bed up or down to mute the vibration. The technology essentially transforms a bump that would take a passenger out of the deepest sleep, into a bump that they wouldn’t even notice.
  • The result is a dramatically smoother ride quality that guests say feels like they’re “floating.”
