*2 Min Survey about Next Gen Suspension - Please help me for my class at MIT

Hey Fellow Enthusiasts,

As part of a class project, I am working with a local MIT Start-Up to help them with their pricing strategy for their next-gen suspension system. They are targeting luxury vehicles, the system would be an option via the OEM.

Please help me out by taking the survey. I promise it till only take 2-3 minutes and you'll enjoy it!

Survey Link: http://mit.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_86osxQauHAy7kZT

Cheers!

I saw BOSE had something similar in the works of a suspension like this, but don't think it ever came to light.

Good luck wonder how it would work on lowered cars

Did the survey but have to be honest. There isn't anything new or next-gen about the proposed system. It is almost verbatim from a decades old Bose Marketability Assessment and that system is still far from becoming a reality if it ever does. Those LS400 prototypes weighed almost a ton more than the standard car and as recent as February this year, there was no hope in getting the weight penalty down to the 1994 target of 200lbs. These days everything needs to be lighter...not heavier unfortunately.
