Digital By-Wire Replaces Mechanical Systems in Cars 2004-01-2926

Currently, a large number of hydraulic control systems in vehicles are used to transform human inputs through mechanical means to control braking systems, engine torque or vehicle speed, steering and other mechanical systems throughout the vehicle. Replacing these systems with digital electro-mechanical control systems can reduce the system cost, increase reliability and flexibility, when compared to the traditional solutions. With the advent of digital by-wire communication systems and advanced semiconductor solutions to enable a new wave of subsystems such as: electric power assisted steering, hybrid technology, ABS, traction and stability control systems.
