Engineering a smoother, more stable ride

Bose is best known for creating high-performance audio products, but our research activities go well beyond sound. Our technologies extend from regulating electric power in airplanes, to controlling fuel rods inside nuclear reactors, to building testing machines for medical devices. And for more than two decades, we have been researching a new system for automobile suspensions.
