Wheel Slip Control for Antilock Braking Systems Using Brake-by-Wire Actuators 2003-01-0325
This paper describes an approach of how to control the wheel slip of a vehicle using brake-by-wire actuators. The advantage of brake-by-wire actuators - such as the electro-hydraulic (EHB) and the electro-mechanical brake (EMB) - is that the caliper pressure or the clamping force, respectively, are known. It will be shown by measurement results that the wheels of a research vehicle equipped with an EHB system and the new control approach can be kept at any desired wheel slip on different surfaces, i.e. ice, snow, and dry asphalt.
