From this standpoint, the possibility of using the
friction project, thus being able to produce in-house
advanced friction materials, is one of the strengths
of Brembo which can position itself as a supplier
of complete brake systems.
On the other hand, the
development of a methodology for simulating caliper
functionality is aimed at establishing, during the
design stage, the caliper characteristics that influence
the car’s pedal feel.
Vehicle evolution can be summarised in a few
general trends: electrification, advanced driver
assistance systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, low
environmental impact, connectivity.
The high level of
integration will bring the brake system into dialogue
with other vehicle systems, such as electric traction
motors and new suspension/steering concepts. Such
integration will allow for increased active safety and
the optimisation of functions, such as regenerative
