Abstract: This paper presents a slip estimation scheme for controlling anti-skid brake Systems (ABS). At first a single wheel vehicle model and the nonlinear tyre-road characteristics from experimental data are adopted. Next the slip estimation scheme is presented, and the estimation error is analysed. ABS control law is then designed, based on the slip estimation scheme. Finally, a design example is given and a computer simulation to verify the analysis is described.

Keywords: anti-lock braking systems; ABS control law; anti-skid braking systems; prediction; reselection; slip estimation; vehicle modelling; vehicle design; tyre-road characteristics; simulation.
