My question about this system goes back to when I worked at GOT airport.
It was winter and the ramp was very slippery. We were standing waiting for our KLM flight (737-400), and when they came on to the ramp, and was about to make a right turn on to the gate, the A/C just kept on going straight. What you might call a "overshoot".
The A/C came to a stop, and the pilot just stepped on it and made a 180 and blocked at the gate.
The pilot was taxiing way to fast for the conditions that occurred on the ramp.
my question is basically if this system also works as a ABS system on newer A/C's? To prevent skidding like the above mentioned incident.
Also, what speed is required for the Anti Skid system to get activated?
Thanks in advance.
