PASSENGER CAR BRAKING PERFORMANCE. VOLUME II. TECHNICAL REPORT
The objectives of this program were to: (1) determine the current braking capabilities of passenger cars in terms of FMVSS 105-75, (2) to determine the direction and rate of evolution of passenger car braking performance, (3) to examine the braking performance standards with respect to tests, test conditions, sequences, and performance requirements, and (4) to recommend changes in the current standards and/or propose new standards to correct any deficiencies noted in the study. Test results obtained on five representative 1974-1975 model automobiles indicate that the requirements of FMVSS 105-75 are reasonable and well within the current state of the art in braking technology.
