Smart Booster-New Key Element for Brake Systems with Enhanced Function Potential 950760

The Smart Booster is a new vacuum booster, which allows - in addition to the today's standard function remote controlled active braking without or in superposition to the driver. This active braking is proportionally controllable and extremly silent under operation. This new functionality allows a redefination of todays brake system layout by combining the Smart Booster with a standard ABS hydraulic control unit to create a new system configuration which is unique in hardware, independent of the amount of function potential requested. This solution is inexpensive and is able to cope with the brake requirements of today and those which results from new emerging systems like:
  • traction control
  • full range stability regulation
  • deceleration control
  • intelligent cruise control
  • hill holder
  • all other control systems which require remote brake intervention.
