DEVELOPMENT OF A FLUIDIC ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM FOR MOTORCYCLES-PHASE III

A mechanical/fluidic sensor was designed, built, and tested. The input to the device is angular acceleration or deceleration and the output is a pneumatic pressure signal which is related to the time rate of change of acceleration. The sensor, intended for use in an antilock brake system for motorcycles, performs satisfactorily. Recommendations for further development are included.
