The automotive industry is increasingly emphasizing the importance of braking technology for its overall market success.
A constantly progressing electrification and integration of systems as well as the must-have Five-Star Rating on the Euro NCAP safety assessment brings up specific challenges for the industry: Next to the design of new-generation-brake systems, the industry is confronted with critical success factors that relate to the functionality of single systems, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems, its integration and validation with all its soft- and hardware components. Moreover, facing pressures from various angles, such as the European legislation on emission reduction, the need for braking technologies that allow for maximum energy savings and comfort while being within the scope of feasibility becomes constantly urgent.
Intelligent Braking 2013 will define strategies, technologies and architectures to optimize functionality and performance on
"next-generation" braking systems.
