This article investigates the variation of vertical vibrations of vehicles using a Radial Basis Neural Network (RBNN). The RBNN is employed to predict desired values of amplitude of acceleration for different road conditions such as concrete, waved stone block paved and country roads. The proposed neural system is also tested for different natural frequencies and the ratios of damping. This method is conceptually straightforward, and it is also applicable to other type vehicles such as trucks.
