The Brake Manufacturers Council (BMC) has announced that it has improved the Brake Effective Evaluation Procedure (BEEP) program by including the SAE J2784 – FMVSS 135 inertia dynamometer test procedure to assess the BEEP pass/fail criteria.
The J2784 was developed under a collaboration effort with the SAE Brake Dynamometer Test Committee.
“These continuous efforts from the BMC align with the [U.S.] government’s strategic framework outlined on NHTSA Docket No. 2008-0113 which states that the product design should be measured against accepted and voluntary product industry standards,” stated Rick Jamieson, CEO ABS Friction Corporation and chairperson of BMC Friction Committee.
One of the features of the SAE J2784 test procedure is that it allows the evaluation of vehicle braking for ABS/Electronic Brake Proportioning when used in conjunction with the appropriate vehicle modeling. Other main technical benefits of the SAE J2784 are:
