DesignStellaris Showcases TI’s Automated Braking System

Texas Instruments Inc. has declared that Richard Wotiz's innovative bicycle ABS brake system featuring Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontrollers (MCUs) won top honors in the DesignStellaris 2010 contest. It was reported that around 1000 people from 60 countries participated in the competition.

The Stellaris LM3S9B96 MCU offers high-end connectivity, mobility control attributes and effective functioning for the ABS Brake System, enabling to manipulate the brake force to bring down the skidding of the wheels. By determining the force exerted on the levers of the brake system as well as the speed at which both the wheels are moving, the braking system can identify slipping and then automatically activate the step motors for applying the brake. Depending upon the nature of the trial surface, the rider can select the appropriate functional settings by means of an adjustment knob.

Experts of Stellaris employed various software devices of Keil Microcontroller development kit (MDK-ARM) for developing software or hardware based applications which can effectively demonstrate various technologies offered by their microcontrollers and Wittenstein’s on-chip SafeRTOS real-time operating system which were utilized in the contest.
