Design and Testing of a New Electric Parking Brake Actuator 2008-01-2555
Electric parking brake (EPB) system provides the roomy space for vehicles compared with traditional handbrake system. Combining a control unit realizes the intelligent functions, which make vehicles more convenient and secure, and avoid the vehicle damage and danger caused by the negligence of drivers.
This paper provides a new concept design of the EPB system that has simple and low-cost characteristics. The testing results have proved the feasibility of this design. First we describe the working principle of this new design, and then introduce the arrangement of the testing system, followed by the discussion of experimental data. The last is conclusion paragraph.
