EXPERIENCE WITH THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE MERCEDES BENZ/BOSCH ANTILOCKING SYSTEM

ERFAHRUNGEN BEI DER KONZEPTION UND ENTWICKLUNG DES MERCEDES-BENZ/BOSCH-ANTI-BLOCKIER-SYSTEMS (ABS)

The author describes the technical problems associated with an antilocking system capable of functioning. The demands made on such a system and the successful overcoming of the problems are illustrated. During the controlled braking process the vehicle stability and steerability must be guaranteed. The control must work in the whole speed range of a vehicle. The control system should fully utilise the adhesion of the wheels on the road, and steerability comes before reduction of braking distance. The control should adapt as quickly as possible to a modification in the transfer properties of the surface. The control must only overlay the normal brakes. A safety switch must disconnect the device if a defect occurs, and normal braking must then be fully functional. (TRRL)
