Brembo Brake By Wire for electric vehicles
Check out the upcoming latest innovation on which Brembo is working: Brake By Wire.
We already know Tesla is using Brembo brakes on the Model 3 (Performance version only) and on the Model S.
The next generation of brakes will be fully electric and will optimize regenerative braking even more as the electric motors and brakes will be able to communicate.
OSAI Automation Systems, an italian company based in Parella (Piedmont), who went public on Borsa Italiana last November, is working with Brembo on this technology:
With Brembo, adds Benetti << Osai is working on brake by wire, the next generation electronic braking system that will be used on electric cars. We are moving more and more into the advanced mobility sector, automation for the electric car >>. Moreover, the new braking system could also be mounted on the Tesla.
I'm proud of our italian companies working on such incredible projects!
Take Care 😉
ops, didn’t notice...
anyway, Rimac is already using this system.
It would be interesting not to have physical connection among brake pedal and calipers. More room for designers and infinite trimming directly on your screen.
Is it a Rimac prototype?
May I ask you the source for this?
Anyway, I expect something at top level from Brembo, hopefully soon on Tesla vehicles
Naah check out at 2:00 in the video, the brakes are a hybrid of hydraulic and electric!
Brembo is developing fully electric brakes: calipers move without any fluid, just with electric current (electro-mechanical actuators)!
Brembo technology is totally fluidless, while electro-hydraulic systems exist since 1980s when ABS was invented by Volvo.
In addition to the the digital accelerator pedal we will have a digital brake pedal with its output processed by the brake controller which in turn controls the electro-mechanical brake actuators.
The brake controller is being developed together with Osai Automation System while Brembo is taking care of the other components 🙂
The caliper that is operated by the actuator can either be a brake caliper with a traditional hydraulic connection or an electromechanical caliper managed directly by the control unit that converts the electrical energy it receives into braking force. The force is transmitted through brake pads directly to a cast iron, steel or carbon-ceramic brake disc.
In the event of a total loss of electricity, the conventional hydraulic safety system will take over for the Brake-By-Wire system enabling the braking system to operate on the front wheels, thus meeting the relevant legislation for secondary braking.
Have a nice evening 😉
