Improving Brake Performance in Autonomous Vehicles AKA More Friction! 2015-01-0036

Performance abilities that exceed the physical capability of current safety features and design compromises can be achieved in the future by adding new active safety devices externally to autonomous vehicles (autonomous car safety efforts centered on improving problem detection and reaction times are beyond the scope of this paper). This paper shows that multiple physical improvements are now available to car designers including increased braking friction/capability on dry roads, the ability to dry/clear-out wet surfaces, active anti-rollover protection, active anti-over-steer, spin prevention, and automated jacking/lift capability.
