\r\nsystem is designed in this study. The widely used quarter car model

\r\nis preferred and it is aimed to improve the ride comfort of the

\r\npassengers. The effect of the actuator time delay, which may arise

\r\ndue to the information processing, sensors or actuator dynamics, is

\r\nalso taken into account during the design of the controller. A sliding

\r\nmode controller was designed that has taken into account the actuator

\r\ntime delay by using Smith predictor. The successful performance of

\r\nthe designed controller is confirmed via numerical results.","references":"[1] Choi, S. B., Han, S.
