Sensotronic brake control (SBC) is an electrohydraulic brake system that combines the functions of a brake servo unit and the ABS (antilock braking system) equipment, including ESP (electronic stability program). The mechanical operation of the brake pedal is redundantly measured by the actuator unit and transmitted to the control unit. There, control commands are calculated according to specific algorithms and passed to the hydraulic modulator where they are converted into pressure modulating operations for the brakes. If the electronics fail, a hydraulic fallback system is automatically available.
