Project of electronic control unit for aircraft ABS
On the request and in cooperation with the Institute of Aviation in Warsaw, a module of electronic control unit (ECU) for aircraft anti-lock braking system (ABS) was developed and executed. Fuzzy logic was used to control the valves of the braking system. Due to the specific operational conditions, the computer has to meet very stringent environmental requirements, so the construction of controller includes first of all components with military certificates and such ones, which fulfil the aerospace industry’s requirements.
Components connected to the on-board computer:
- landing gear extension sensors
- control arm deflection sensors
- wheel rotational speed sensors
- switch in cockpit
- pressure reducing valves in braking system
