Abstract:
SummaryConsidering that the most part of commercial vehicles are equipped with air brakes it is very important assure specific technical requirements for air brake system and its components. In addition, the effects of brake system failure are more critical for commercial vehicles which require more attention on their requirements details.Historically, the development of air brakes technology started on North America and Europe and consequently two strong and distinct resolutions were structured: FMVSS 121 and ECE R.13, respectively.For passenger cars were developed the ECER.13H to harmonize North American and European resolutions. However, for commercial vehicles regional applications, culture and implementation time must be considered.These commercial vehicles peculiarities must be understood and their specific requirements harmonized to attend the global marketing growth.This article shows a review of the North American and European air brake requirements and also discusses their influence on the South America considering technical vision as well as strategies for introduction of global technology.Additionally were compared ISO, SAE and ABNT standards focusing in opportunities to improve South American requirements to have more safety vehicles.
