The E-Active Body Control system on new Mercedes-Benz GLE allows you to individually control each of the wheels.

On the mercedesbenzpassion YouTube channel, a video has appeared demonstrating the possibilities of E-Active Body Control suspension in the new Mercedes-Benz GLE. Thanks to the 48-volt on-board network and hydroaccumulators installed on each strut, the SUV can individually control the rigidity and position of each of the wheels.

E-Active Body Control is an optional system that includes a stereo camera that reads road bumps from a distance of 15 meters, Airmatic air suspension and powerful hydraulics. Receiving information from the camera and other sensors, the on-board computer is able to determine the necessary body height with an accuracy of up to three millimeters in order to compensate for irregularities. In this case, the system response level can be set manually.

E-Active Body Control also resists rolls, pecking during braking and is able to tilt the car body inward to turn to reduce centrifugal force. In the off-road driving mode, the hydropneumatic suspension can quickly raise and lower the car body several times. It helps to get out, for example, from sand. In addition, using the display of the multimedia system, you can set the height of each wheel.
