Braking Distance Estimation by Simulation
The present-day computer power enables (parallel to tests) the simulation of processes of cars safety assurance by specialized software. This article describes a simulation of car braking and braking distance estimation in different conditions. The simulating model has been made in MATLAB/Simulink. The results of simulation give the braking distances, which are necessary for safety cars distance estimation for different road surfaces, cars speeds and other conditions.
