Brake System with Double Link-Type Variable Ratio Brake Pedal 2000-01-0438

In the past, in order to have good brake effectiveness, it was necessary to adopt high coefficient friction materials for pads or linings, or enlarged brake effective radii. But high coefficient material can create problems such as noise or vibration. And increasing effective radii is limited by the wheel package. A high pedal ratio can provide good effectiveness, but also leads to long pedal travel and poor brake feel. Specifically for trucks and SUV's with large GVW's, it can be difficult to achieve both good brake effectiveness and good pedal feel. In response to this difficult design challenge, a double link-type variable ratio pedal was developed for a production application.
