This paper deals with the problem of robust sampled-data control for an automotive seat-suspension system subject to control input saturation. By using the nature of the sector nonlinearity, a sampled-data based control input saturation in the control design is studied. A passenger dynamic behavior is considered in the modeling of seat-suspension system, which makes the model more precisely and brings about uncertainties as well in the developed model. Robust output feedback control strategy is adopted since some state variables, such as, body acceleration and body deflection, are unavailable. The desired controller can be achieved by solving the corresponding linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, a design example has been given to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed controller design approach.
