Diagnosing the Air Brake System of Commercial Vehicles Conference Paper uri icon


  • Air brake systems are widely used in commercial vehicles like trucks, tractor-trailers and buses. In this article, we present model-based diagnostic schemes for detecting faults in air brake systems. Leaks and push rod out-of-adjustment are two prominent defects that affect the performance of the brake system. We will present schemes that will monitor the brake system for these defects and corroborate these schemes with experimental data. © 2006 IEEE.
