A UNIQUE CONCEPT FOR AUTOMATICALLY CONTROLLING THE BRAKING ACTION OF WHEELED VEHICLES DURING MINIMUM DISTANCE STOPS

Test results of a unique automatic brake control system are outlined and a comparison is made of its mode of operation to that of an existing skid control system. The purpose of the test system is to provide automatic control of braking action such that hydraulic brake pressure is maintained at a near constant, optimum value during minimum distance stops.
