Our aim is to make tomorrow’s mobility safer. That’s why we are already focusing on the next generation of brakes and brake actuation systems today. We are working tirelessly to continuously improve performance, efficiency and safety, while preparing the braking function for the significant technology shift that will shape the future of the automotive industry.
Despite all the progress: the braking function will always be a crucial aspect of driver’s confidence and driving pleasure for future mobility concepts of every kind.
This is our firm belief and is what drives us every day.
The advent of electrified vehicle architectures has led to a necessity to adapt brake components. Mobility concepts of the future, which have already taken root, espouse the maxims of ensuring optimum performance, safety, and efficiency. Innovative advances in braking technology such as ABS, ESC and traction control have been important milestones – but the development of regenerative braking systems is the next game changer. This is not only true in terms of safety, but also durability and energy efficiency. iDBC2 sets the highest performance standards in this field – and does so with a completely unchanged pedal feeling while offering maximum comfort to the driver.
The future of mobility is automated. Appropriate fallback levels are necessary for safe implementation of high automation for not only braking, but also ABS, brake force distribution, electric parking brake or emergency brake assistant.
For fail-safe functionality, the core functions of iDBC2 are fully redundant both in architecture and in power supply. Additionally, in the unlikely event of a malfunction, appropriate strategies that ensure operational safety are available. Last but not least, the system as an actuator works well with other vehicle technology, such as Chassis Control or ADAS Control.
Vehicle Motion Control
The iDBC2 braking system is capable of even more: Thanks to appropriately configured interfaces, features like regenerative braking or wheel-specific torque distribution (torque vectoring) can be easily implemented.
iDBC2 will support you in allocating VMC functions to the brake system or to your central control architecture. Both the electric drive and the brake system can be functionally integrated. iDBC2 is ready for the future – additional VMC features can easily be added thanks to the existing functions such as brake-to-steer and brake-to-torque-vector.
