    Abstract

    This paper gives a summary of the results of development work aimed at studying means to control low frequency vibration of rubber wheeled mobile machines. An experimentally verified virtual prototype of an agricultural wheeled tractor is prepared and this simulation model is used to study and evaluate different vibration control alternatives. The virtual prototype is found to be a powerful tool in the design of dynamic properties of mobile machines. A physical prototype of an active cabin suspension system, aimed at increasing driving comfort and at maintaining the "working ergonomics", is designed, implemented and tested in a laboratory. This prototype system, comprised of inexpensive hydraulic components, shows measurable vibration suppression effect in typical tractor driving conditions and thus is a realistic basis for further testing and development work.
