Anti-Lock and Automatic Braking Systems
This paper presents an Anti-lock and Automatic Braking system using ultrasonic sensors. Sensors placed at the
front end of the vehicle measures the distance between the obstacle and the vehicle and regulate the anti-lock mechanism.
Arduino Uno microcontroller board is used for the implementation of the model. The sensors measure the speed of the
vehicle and detect the obstacle ahead, thereby, initiating automatic braking. If the speed of the vehicle is above a set velocity
for a predefined safety distance, then the microcontroller based system performs the actuating mechanism to bring back the
vehicle to a safe speed thereby minimizing the chances of accidents.
