Automobiles show an increasing number of mechatronic developments by the integration of mechanic and electronic systems. In the case of vehicle suspension systems, this comprises the application of hydraulic, pneumatic and/or electric actuators with the aim of active roll and pitch stabilization and an increase of driving safety and comfort in general. Supplementary, the integration of these actuators and the involved sensors and electronic control units enables a detailed process supervision, fault detection and identification (FDI) for the whole system. This was developed for an active vehicle suspension system on a test rig.The inquired active suspension is a hydraulic fully loaded active suspension, whereat a hydraulic plunger is added in series with the conventional steel spring. This assembly is equivalent to the Active- Body-Control System of DaimlerChrysler. The test rig is equipped with suitable sensors for a series passenger car. The goal is to detect faults of all involved sensors with the distinction of noise, outliers, breakdown, and also offset and gain faults.One approach to solve FDI problems is to use parameter estimation and parity…
