A fuzzy logic-based Anti-Lock Braking Systems

  • 1 Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania


In today’s automobile industry, the need to adjust the speed of the vehicle and stabilize the wheels control is still a task due to road conditions and traffic. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a tool used in automobiles to prevent wheels from locking while brakes are pressed. The objective of this work is the maintenance of the wheel slip value to a desirable slip ratio as the vehicle model is simulated using a fuzzy logic controller. The analyses are made based on the slip ratio, angular velocity and stopping time.
