Automotive Braking Systems USA 2023
The automotive braking segment is going through an upheaval. The way braking systems work has changed fundamentally, with vehicle electrification and the EV transition being the biggest driver for change. This speed of advancement in Electric Vehicles (EV) and the inevitable roll-out of vehicles with L3 capabilities is presenting challenges and opportunities like never before.
The biggest topic on everyone’s minds right now is Brake-by-Wire – BBW isn’t a future technology any longer, and OEMs and Tier-1 companies are unanimously interested in the Roadmap, Architecture, Innovations, and Level of Redundancy for electric and autonomous L-3 vehicles.
This is just the tip of the challenges iceberg for the automotive braking industry in the United States; other key themes being discussed in braking circles are Regenerative Braking, Optimal Level of Redundancy, Electromechanical Braking, Role of Software and Software-Defined Vehicles, and Removal of Park Pawl among other topics.
