It's been an obsession of Bose Corp's elderly leader, Amar Bose, since 1980 — conquering potholes. Apparently the head of that audio products company has been a suspension geek since the late 1950s, and has been working on a new system that detects obstacles and pulls a car's wheels up over them, which we reported on last December. According to the Associated Press, a new luxury car yet to be designed, will be fitted with the system, which uses sensors and four electromagnetic motors mounted at the wheel, in essence creating a really active suspension.
