Abstract -- In this paper, we demonstrate a novel hybrid control synthesis approach using an automotive suspension system. Discrete abstractions are used to approximate the continuous dynamics and emphasis is placed on the nondeterministic nature of the abstracting models. The regulator problem for hybrid systems is formulated for safety specifications and algorithms for control design are presented.
