Ride quality is a measure of the comfort level experienced by passengers and is intimately associated with their subjective perception and sensitivity to motion and to sound. This measure is affected by noise and vibration of a running system. On the other hand, ride quality is the measure of the product quality of a Passenger Transportation System (PTS) manufacturer. Ride quality of passenger transportation systems is critical for a PTS manufacturer to determine the subjective and objective quality of PTS. This is especially important in high rise (high end) systems. The paper investigates the dynamic interaction of PTS system components and their influence on ride quality.
