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".
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.
