  • Patent number: 10543819
    Abstract: A power-assisted hydraulic braking system includes a main brake line into which a setpoint brake pressure can be introduced via a brake valve actuated by a brake pedal, and from which a plurality of wheel brake lines branch off, each leading to an actuating unit of a wheel brake, and a valve arrangement of an ABS controller, comprising an inlet valve disposed between the main brake line and one of the wheel brake lines and an outlet valve disposed between the relevant wheel brake line and a pressureless return line.

  • Publication number: 20190299997
    Abstract: A method for estimating a probability distribution of the maximum coefficient of friction (?) at a current and/or future waypoint (s, s*) of a vehicle. According to the method, a first probability distribution (WV1) for the maximum coefficient of friction (?) at the waypoint (s) of the vehicle is determined by a Bayesian network from a first data set, which is, or was determined, for one, in particular current, waypoint (s) of the vehicle and which characterizes the maximum coefficient of friction (?) at the waypoint (s) of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190143963
    Abstract: A method for determining a safe speed (v*) at a future waypoint (s*) of a vehicle moving along a route. In this step, at least one item of route data (in particular the curvature of the curve ?) characterizing the course of the route is determined. In addition, a first probability distribution (Pges) of a coefficient of friction (?) is provided at the current waypoint (s) and/or at the future waypoint (s*) of the vehicle. Subsequently a second probability distribution (Pv) of a vehicle speed (v) at the future waypoint (s*) is determined from the at least one item of route data (?) and from the first probability distribution (Pges). The safe speed (v*) is determined by statistical analysis from the second probability distribution (Pv).

  • Patent number: 10086812
    Abstract: An external force-supported hydraulic braking system of a wheeled vehicle includes two brake circuits each having a main brake line configured to be connected to a pressure-carrying supply line or to a pressureless return line via a brake valve and further having a number of wheel brake lines branching from the main brake line and including a valve assembly of a TCS system. The valve assembly of the TCS system has a single TCS control valve formed as a 6/2-way magnetic switching valve configured to, in a non-actuated state, block a pressure-carrying main pressure line against two bypass lines each leading directly to a respective main brake line, and connect the two return lines to a pressureless collective line, and further configured to, in the actuated state, connect the main pressure line to the two bypass lines and block the two return lines against the collective line.

  • Patent number: 9925964
    Abstract: A vehicle braking unit comprises an operating braking pressure inlet which receives an inlet braking pressure built up by a braking cylinder, and at least one operating brake pressure outlet at which an outlet braking pressure is provided for an operating brake modulator, which is upstream of the operating brake and provides anti-lock functionality. At least one connecting channel hydraulically connects the operating brake pressure inlet to the outlet. Brake fluid is supplied from a storage unit through the brake cylinder, the connecting channel and the operating brake modulator. The braking unit has a brake fluid inlet, through which the brake fluid is received from the storage unit, a brake fluid pump, by which the brake fluid is suctioned through the brake fluid inlet and a supply pressure is built up, and a valve unit that controls the outlet braking pressure and/or a parking brake release pressure by the supply pressure.
