It’s a kind of magic

What do chicken and Mercedes Benz have in common? Stability at all times.

Mercedes’ current ABC system uses a hydraulic piston to act on each steel coil spring to quickly and independently adjust the suspension on each wheel in reaction to the road surface, and it does a fine job keeping the ride smooth and occupants unjostled.

But the key term there is “reaction”—the suspension deals with the bumps after the wheel has encountered them. What if the car knew what was coming in advance, with absolute certainty and down to every imperfection? The oil flow at each corner could be adjusted so accurately that any surface flaw could be practically neutralized.

Oh and by the way: no chicken were harmed in the making of this. It’s the Magic Body Control
