Title: Method for determining the deceleration of a motor vehicle

Abstract: The deceleration o motor vehicle resulting from a vehicle brake is defined as the difference between a total deceleration of the motor vehicle and decelerations caused by the engine, wind, friction and grade, and a product of contact-pressure forces of the vehicle brake using a proportionality factor which is dependent on a brake temperature and a load being carried. The ratio of the two values is then used as a parameter for correcting the proportionality factor.
