Thoresson Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, University of Pretoria, PretoriaSouth Africa Accepted 24 August Available online 25 September Abstract Both handling and ride comfort play an important role in the performance of a vehicle, usually resulting in a compromised suspension. To improve this situation, a two-stage, semi-active hydro-pneumatic spring—damper system has been developed. The suspension sys- tem enables either good ride comfort for a compliant suspension or good handling when chan- ged to a hard setting. The question that arises is, what measures can be applied to determine when a switchover between the two settings should occur.
Top With the proliferation of digital channels, marketing is undergoing a tremendous evolution. As a result, marketers at progressive organizations are redirecting their efforts and concentrating on a more holistic understanding of marketing performance.
To drive response and determine the appropriate marketing mix in this new paradigm, marketers must adopt a fresh approach to understand how to influence prospects and customers. By doing so, marketers can maximize marketing spend and generate stronger return on investment. Five core strategies are needed to measure marketing effectiveness.
Plan ahead and design a response-attribution infrastructure to support all channels Many organizations treat marketing measurement as an afterthought of campaign planning. However, measurement and reporting are critical items on the campaign-planning agenda. Up-front planning ensures the appropriate tracking and testing conditions.
Different channels require different tracking mechanisms, but there are some common questions that should be addressed: What types of campaigns acquisition, conversion cross-sell, etc. How do cross-channel communications and campaigns roll up into a single program?
What information is available to match a response, and should response metadata be enhanced? How will metadata be managed for direct-marketing and indirect-marketing campaigns?
When a marketing program uses multiple channels, the campaign hierarchy must account for each channel along with the appropriate rollups so that measurement aligns with business goals. Each level within the hierarchy should be well defined and understood by stakeholders prior to campaign implementation.
Defining those structures after the launch of the campaign, even if possible to do, greatly increases the effort and frequently equates to inconclusive outcomes.

For handling, several criteria have been put forward, which are to a more or lesser extent dependent on driver input. This paper considers the metrics that have been used for measuring handling and pays special attention to roll angle as a valid criterion.
