has worked together
with leading bike-maker Cannondale
to integrate an i
MEMS accelerometer into Cannondale’s revolutionary Simon electronic front-suspension system. The programmable suspension system uses an ADI single-axis i
MEMS accelerometer to monitor the terrain at 2-ms intervals, and this data is processed by the Simon system to access more than 10,000 terrain-response maps to provide optimal bicycle suspension control. Dissimilar from previous mountain bike front suspension technologies, which relied on mechanical devices with slower response times, the Simon front suspension system incorporates ADI’s accelerometers for real-time response, which allows riders to instantly adapt to dynamically shifting trail conditions.
