Claim of US Patent No. 9,809,302

1. A method of braking left and right landing gear wheels on respective left and right sides of an aircraft, the method comprising:
receiving a desired left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L) for the left wheel; receiving
a desired right braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R) for the right wheel; braking the left
wheel with a reduced left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L?) which is less than the
desired left braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (L); and braking the right wheel with a reduced
right braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R?) which is less than the desired respective right
braking hydraulic pressure, braking torque, or angular deceleration (R), wherein L??R?=L?R.
