The automotive world is battling every day to provide innovation and product development without compromising the environment. The electrification of the engines can be a factor that divides eras into the market. The conventional brake system links the act of apply the brake pedal with the stop or deceleration of the vehicle. This is now possible thanks to the long-term use of the vacuum generated by the combustion engine or by auxiliary equipment (vacuum pump). New brake system technologies provides, without a vacuum source, more efficient and safer braking than the current power brake system. Embedded in technological developments, these systems interacts with other vehicle components (cameras, radars, ABS, ESC) bringing the driver advanced safety conditions.
