    This paper analyzes the general requirements of antilock brake systems in decreasing vehicle stopping distance and maintaining directional control during braking. The dual phenomenon of tire slip and vehicle dynamic weight transfer, which necessitate the use of antilock systems for high-efficiency braking performance, is discussed. Also, a review of the present level of antilock technology development as well as specific system configurations is presented for aircraft, automobiles, heavy-duty trucks, and motorcycles.
