Brake By Wire System Configuration and Functions using Front EWB (Electric Wedge Brake) and Rear EMB (Electro-Mechanical Brake) Actuators 2010-01-1708

A dry Brake-By-Wire (BBW) system is one in which the existing hydraulic system is replaced by motor driven electro-mechanical calipers. Although it has yet to be introduced into series production, the attractive benefits of BBW have kept it in the mainstream of brake research for a number of years. In the current investigation, the BBW system is configured with electric wedge brakes in the front axle where high braking forces are required, while conventional electro-mechanical brakes are used in the rear axles. This paper will examine the feasibility of the current BBW system configuration through lab and vehicle performance tests including ABS (anti-lock braking system).
