Meaning of ACTIVE SUSPENSION in English

ACTIVE SUSPENSION

While conventional suspension uses springs and shock absorbers to isolate the vehicle from the bouncing movement of the wheels when it contacts rough roads, active suspension uses power actuators which are controlled by a computer . These actuators place the wheels of the vehicle in the best position to accommodate rough roads as well as compensate for different load levels.
