Stopping Distance is one of the most common metrics of a vehicle's braking performance and one of the most critical attributes of accident prevention and minimization. The measurements are used within the development of the vehicle and are a critical aspect of accident prevention, accident reconstruction, and overall occupant and pedestrian safety management. While the results of this metric are published in a variety of sources, the factors that differentiate vehicle performance, vehicle dynamics, and calculation of the braking performance required to achieve desired performance are not widely...
