GM Engineer Honored For Suspension System
KETTERING, Ohio (AP) _ A General Motors Corp. engineer was honored Monday for his role in developing a computerized suspension system designed to create a smooth ride over bumpy roads.
Kamal Majeed was presented with the ″Boss″ Kettering Award during a ceremony at GM’s Delco Chassis plant.
The award goes to GM employees whose patented inventions provide significant benefits to the company. Majeed led a team that began work on the ″road-sensing″ suspension system about four years ago.
The system allows a car to sense bumps and turns in the road by a computer that reads data fed by sensors. The computer then adjusts the struts and shock absorbers to maintain a smooth ride.
