Wheel Lock Control Braking System 741083

ABSTRACT

Automobile and truck manufacturers have given increasing attention to electronic wheel lock control brake systems during the last few years.

These systems prevent continuous wheel lock-up during maximum braking stops, thus aiding the driver in retaining lateral stability and generally improving stopping distances.

This presentation discusses a system for preventing continuous rear wheel lock-up of an automobile during maximum braking stops. Included is a description of the control system components, tire and road characteristics, brake and vehicle dynamics, and an analysis leading to the requirements for optimum control.
