Study of the Antilock Braking System with Electric Brake Force Distribution
Antilock braking system (ABS) is a standard equipment for passenger car, it can prevent automobile wheels from locking-up and improve braking performance. Electronic brake force distribution (EBD) can prevent the rear wheels from locking prior to the front wheels, it can automatically adjust the braking force distribution scale among the wheels. In this paper, a vehicle model and tire model are developed, a sliding mode controller is designed for ABS system and a fuzzy controller is designed for EBD system. Dry asphalt road and wet asphalt road are used to simulate the performance of ABS/EBD system. The simulation results show that the control method can make full use of the respective advantages of ABS and EBD systems.
