The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is an active safety system for two wheeled vehicles (TWV). It is used to control the dynamics of a TWV during an emergency braking phase and to improve its driving safety. The main objective of this study is to establish a virtual model of a TWV equipped with a control scheme for an ABS system. The developed model will be used to investigate the reliability of an ABS system when used with a TWV. For this purpose, firstly a TWV multi-body dynamic model was constructed using ADAMS/View. Furthermore, a control model of the ABS system was created using MATLAB/Simulink. Then, a co-simulation approach is established using MATLAB/Simulink and ADAMS/Control. The performance of the co-simulation model is assessed by simulations for different initial speeds and for different road conditions. The obtained results show the benefits of using a co-simulation approach in studying such a complex systems. Moreover, the effects of the active safety system (ABS) on the dynamic of a TWV, during emergency braking, are studied.
