Novel Design of the Integrated Electric Parking Brake System 2010-01-1707

A new design of integrated Electric Parking Brake system, called iEPB and integrated in the brake caliper, is introduced in this paper. It consists of an electrically operated brake unit and a hydraulically pressed unit independently, and uses a special self-locking mechanism instead of a screw device to increase the efficiency and the working speed. With all conventional EPB system's advantages, it also provides a stronger brake performance and a faster reaction time.
In this paper, we describe the working principle of this new design at first, and then introduce the arrangement of the testing system, followed by a discussion of experimental data. The testing results prove the feasibility of this design. The conclusion paragraph summarizes the key points about the design of the iEPB system.
