Anti-lock braking system realized with a magnetorheological actuator


Semi Curcio, Christian Dorn

Semester Group Project, FS 12 (10182)

The purpose of this project is to develop an anti-braking system for two wheeled cycles. The braking system should prevent the bike from blocking the tyres, thus the braking path will decrease and more stability respectively safety is guaranteed. These purposes lead to focus on two main parts. The first part consists of developing a new kind of electro-mechanical mechanism to brake with MRF (magnetorheological fluid). Using this kind of fluid enables the system to work in passive mode, thus the amount of hydraulical components such as a motor will be reduced. Modeling an actuator which will be fixed on the brake to block non-wanted forces is the first challenging part of this project. The second part is to develop a sophisticated model of a two wheeled bike. The control of the wheels as well as the stability of the bike are some of the main questions which will be investigated in this work.
