Electronic Braking System EBS - Status and Advanced Functions 982781

Since 1996 a 2nd Generation EBS has been available in Europe as an advanced brake system offering a variety of advantages to the OEM as well as to the truck and fleet owner.
EBS enhances vehicle safety and improves the braking performance to a “passenger car like” braking feel, allowing less experienced drivers better vehicle handling. The brake lining wear control and retarder integration allow the reduction of operational costs.
The safety enhancements achieved by EBS in conjunction with disc brakes, are rewarded by European truck insurance companies by lower insurance fees.
The importance of EBS will still gain significantly through the developments in process.
EBS is the platform for ESP and ACC, which will be a major contributer to better integration of trucks in dense traffic flow.
