Automoive IQ Article: Braking and steering systems to control a new generation of autonomous vehicle

It feels so close to happening, but while autonomous and self-driving cars may appeal to our imagination, the challenges facing the technology before it becomes a widespread reality are complex and varied. And in meeting these challenges the car and many of the systems, such as those controlling braking and steering functions, will have to undergo radical changes.

Expert interview with thyssenkrupp Presta AG: Holistic development of steering and braking for vehicle motion control

Expert interview with thyssenkrupp Presta AG: Holistic development of steering and braking for vehicle motion control

Thyssenkrupp Presta AG have strong competencies in steering and suspension and have started to build up competencies in vehicle motion control (VMC).

Read an exclusive expert interview with Barna Szimandl from thyssenkrupp Presta AG where he talks about the holistic development of steering and braking for vehicle
motion control.

Find answers to important questions such as:

  • Which redundancies will be required in future cars if we utilize the cross redundancies between steering
    and braking?
  • What happens if the second failure comes?
  • Vet brakes or dry brakes will be in the driverless cars?
  • EMB prototype for vehicle motion control development

Automotive IQ Article: Braking system redundancy and autonomous driving

We have recently seen the evolution of many advanced assisted driving technologies as the automotive industry moves ever closer to fully autonomous driving. Automated emergency braking is one of many examples of how electronic controls have made driving safer, but such systems are clearly designed to work in tandem with a human in control of the vehicle.

University of Leeds Presentation: Towards environmentally friendly friction brakes

University of Leeds Presentation: Towards environmentally friendly friction brakes

Vehicles with regenerative braking are required to be fitted with foundation brakes. Such brakes typically utilize grey cast iron rotors, which are heavy and, hence, increase energy consumption as well as emission of green house gases. Is there any solution?

Professor David Barton, University of Leeds, summarizes scientific research on environmentally friendly friction brakes.

Automotive IQ Report on Drive-by-Wire: Overcoming the Barriers to Consumer Adoption

Automotive IQ Report on Drive-by-Wire: Overcoming the Barriers to Consumer Adoption

In an automotive world brimming with tech developments, the benefits of drive-by-wire for end consumers are out in the open.

Drive-by-wire and brake-by-wire are seen as the future of vehicle control. Market predictions talk of healthy growth rate in the next 7 years, but cost, risk of failure and lack of consumer embrace threat an otherwise beneficial technology. In this regard, both OEMs and providers should minimize on new product by design, stimulate drive feedback and offer bullet-proof safety.

Expand your knowledge within this area, with this exclusive free report written by Automotive IQ on the topic: "Drive-by-Wire: How to Overcome the Barriers to Consumer Adoption".

Automotive IQ Report: Brake-by-wire systems - OEMs overview

Automotive IQ Report: Brake-by-wire systems - OEMs overview

As we move ever closer to autonomous vehicles, the issues of safety around braking systems continue to come under the spotlight. From a technical standpoint, self-driving vehicles must have a safety protocol for instances of failure whereby an automatic brake system can achieve an appropriate level of deceleration, avoid wheel locking and bring the vehicle to a secure standstill. Meanwhile, from a passenger’s point of view, the self-driving vehicle must do all of the above while maintaining the physical safety of the occupants.

Brakes are one of the most important safety features in cars and one of the key elements in driver assistance systems and autonomous driving in the future. Safety and reliability are the main focus of automotive system and driver assistance system development. These topics will be discussed at the Intelligent Braking conference 2019 in Berlin, Germany. Prepare for the event by reading the following 9 stories on current challenges in the area of braking systems.

Automotive IQ Article on Regenerative Braking

While developments in brake technology in the past have been slow and gradual, the sector is experiencing something of a revolutionary change due to the trends of electrification and autonomous driving. Both of these trends provide a series of challenges and opportunities for OEMs and suppliers, but these must be weighted against the need for functional safety of such a critical system.

As electric vehicles gain more of the market share we can expect more advances in regenerative braking. This is because such systems can help to increase vehicle range, while at the same time, potentially reduce weight and reduce cost. Meanwhile, regenerative braking systems designed for today’s petrol and diesel-powered vehicles can have a substantial impact on fuel efficiency and therefore, help to reduce emissions. The example of Fraikins’rigid truck demonstrator also highlights the vast potential benefits to the haulage industries whereby such a system can dramatically reduce fuel consumption and emissions - particularly in urban areas.
