Furthermore, the roll and pitch acceleration ([[??].sub.x] and [[??].sub.y] ) as well as the jerk ([[??].sub.z]) of the vehicle are done using the derivation of the vertical acceleration in time domain.
(vi) short-time Fourier transformed pitch acceleration and
max[absolute value of [[??].sub.ref]], [[??].sub.exp] and [??]([K.sup.k.sub.b], [C.sup.k.sub.b]) are, respectively, the maximum absolute value of the pitch acceleration furnished by the reference data (Ata & Oyadiji, 2014), the pseudo-experimental pitch acceleration and the estimated pitch acceleration.
In this experiment, the vehicle traverses a bump terrain, while bounce and pitch accelerations are measured.
So, chassis bounce and pitch accelerations can be measured to estimate the suspension stiffness and damping coefficient.
