ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM FOR PASSENGER CARS-DEVELOPMENT OF A BRAKE SYSTEM GIVING YAW STABILITY AND STEERABILITY DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING

The report describes the development of a so-called anti-lock braking system and the results from field tests with an experimental vehicle. The purpose of the project has been to demonstrate in practice the possiblities to maintain steerability and yaw stability during emergency braking in a curve. Furthermore, to create conditions for making necessary investigations to support regulations concerning anti-lock systems, to build up technical know-how independent of industrial interests and to offer the results for the disposal of the industry. The results from tests made on ice and on dry asphalt concrete show that the anti-lock system gives the experimental vehicle good steerability and yaw stability during emergency braking in a curve. At the same time good braking efficiency is maintained. /Author/
