Abstract. In this paper, we demonstrate a novel hybrid control synthe-
sis approach using an automotive suspension system. Discrete abstrac-
tions are used to approximate the continuous dynamics and emphasis is
placed on the nondeterministic nature of the abstracting models. The
regulator problem for hybrid systems is formulated for safety specifica-
tions and algorithms for control design are presented.
1 Introduction
In this paper, a novel systematic methodology for hybrid control synthesis is
presented and an example of an automotive suspension system is used to illus-
trate the approach. The main advantage of the approach is that it provides a
convenient general framework for hybrid systems not only for analysis, but more
importantly for controller synthesis. Discrete abstractions of the continuous dy-
namics are studied and the emphasis is placed on the nondeterministic nature of
