Abstract : This patent describes a remote autobrake system. A linear accelerometer measures the acceleration of a vehicle to determine if it is having thrust applied to it. If the engine of the vehicle is applying thrust, a servo switch is used to prevent engagement of the brakes. This systems acts as a constant deceleration system if the thrust is below a predetermined level. This system can be used with an antiskid brake system. (Author)
