A Comparison of World Braking Standards with Reference to the Development of Japanese Braking Standards 720030
A new Committee on Japanese Automobile Standards for Brakes has been established to issue standards covering road tests, dynamometer tests, nomenclature, etc. This paper discusses several of these. The Committee also reviewed the regulations and standards of various countries for comparison purposes.
In order to have rational standards, ample data on vehicle usage, analysis of brake characteristics, and study of basic human engineering will be needed. Correlation among road tests, dynamometer tests, and test equipment must be established.
Amalgamation of various national standards into a single international standard is desirable goal.
