Automotive BBW AWB Dispulsion

  • B.T. Fijalkowski
Part of the Intelligent Systems, Control and Automation: Science and Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 47)


Automotive vehicle manufacturers are currently developing some innovative BBW AWB dispulsion mechatronic control systems that incorporate different levels of mechatronics into braking to produce several advantages. Through superior mechatronic brake engineering, some automotive vehicle manufacturers are moving very quickly to advance the technical potential of conventional fluido-mechanical brake (FMB) or pneumo-mechanical brake (PMB) systems to an electro-mechanical brake (EMB) system that may function completely all-electrically. As they realise their visions of integrating mechatronics into complete chassis system solutions, they are developing technologies that are cutting-edge, with tremendous benefits to customers and, most importantly, users.
