3 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WITH BRAKE-BY-WIRE
Brembo continues the development work of the individual components of the Brake-by-Wire system. The engineers further broadened their skills in order to produce a variety of different BBW components in response to the requisites of each individual team and further working on the assembly of the parts within the system and the miniaturising of the components themselves.
As happened in 2016, the majority of the teams will chose rear discs of small diameter, in line with the energy recovery system.
For certain teams, the Company developed only some BBW components; for others Brembo conducted more extensive work concerning the entire system: from the simulator that operates the rear brake master cylinder, to the actuator controlled by the control unit which drives calipers on the rear axle, to the safety valve system that controls the switching in case of system malfunction.
