Estimation of the Technical State of Automotive Disc Brakes Using Fuzzy Logic

Abstract


According to existing studies the phenomena that occur in the exploitation
of the braking system are very complex and an analytical mathematical modeling
of braking process it is difficult to be developed [1]. Since these phenomena are also
characterized by some uncertainties, a fuzzy logic approach has been employed in this
research for the estimation of technical state of the disc brakes. Their technical state
was expressed through the thickness variation, which was used as the output linguistic
variable. The vibrations and temperature of the disc brakes were used as the input
linguistic variables. The fuzzy decision system for the estimation of technical state
of the disc brakes has been implemented with the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox of the
Matlab software, which can be employed to determine if the thickness of the disc
brakes becomes smaller than the limit value prescribed by the manufacturer.
