Abstract Robust H/sup /spl infin// output feedback control is applied to the control of automobile active suspensions based on a full dynamic model of the vehicle. The output feedback control is desirable from the viewpoint of implementation in the sense that it reduces the number of measurements drastically compared with state feedback used currently in suspension control. In this paper, the authors show that a linearized model is block-decoupled by a similarity transformation, which reduces the controller complexity significantly. The uncertainties of the vehicle model are properly taken into account in the derivation of the H/sup /spl infin// controller. The controller is actually implemented in a commercial car and the performance is verified both by simulations and experiments. The performance obtained proves to be quite satisfactory.<<ETX>>
