In line with the project ePerformance which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) a realisation of a hybrid damping element for an application in an automobile is researched. The nowaday commonly gas pressure spring is replaced by a combination of electrical linear motor and a machanical spring. Thus gives the potential to setting up vehicle dynamics as well as driving comfort by individual preferences.
