Anti-lock brake system development is expanding on four major fronts. The first is to improve the solutions economically to extend the range of usage into the lowest cost vehicles. The second is to continue to improve the usage of available traction under complex real road conditions to extend the range of performance. The third is to continue the pattern of up-integration with other systems to extend the range of value in the vehicle and the last is to use emerging technology to improve the interface of vehicle capability with driver ability to extend the range of real situation utilization of available performance.
This paper discusses the different technologies that will drive the system changes in the future and some expectations for future levels of performance.
