Traditionally a skyhook control, widely applied to vibration control, requires two sensors to measure sprung mass acceleration and relative displacement, respectively. For the implementation, these two measurement signals are converted into velocities and then the damping control signal is decided and sent to controllable HH/SS dampers. In this paper, a one sensor based skyhook control policy is developed. The proposed control policy just needs one measurement signal, sprung mass acceleration, to estimate these two velocities for semiactive control. The new strategy is explained through a typical spring-mass system of a quarter-car model. But the effectiveness of the new control approach for vibration isolation is validated with ride control through simulation study of a 7-DOF full car suspension system with application of magneto-rheological (MR) dampers.
