Antilock brake systems (Qpkbe)

Definition
Portions of a service brake system that automatically controls the degree of rotational wheel slip during braking by sensing the rate of angular rotation of the wheels; transmitting signals regarding the rate of wheel angular rotation to one or more controlling devices which interpret those signals and generate responsive controlling output signals; and transmitting those controlling signals to one or more modulators which adjust brake actuating forces in response to those signals. (Source: CFR 49 Section 393.5)
