The variable-geometry suspension system is in the focus of the paper. The advantages of the variable-geometry system are the simple structure, low energy consumption andlow cost. During maneuvers the variable-geometry system modifies the camber angle of the front wheels in order to improve road stability. The system affects both the chassis roll angle and the half-track change. Moreover, the tracking error of the reference yawrate can also be reduced. In the paper the challenges and possibilities of the variablegeometry suspension system are analyzed.
