Brembo introduced the new Sensify electronic braking system, which could be the biggest advance in braking technology from the anti-lock braking system (ABS) of the 1970s.
Sensify combines artificial intelligence and traditional braking technology to achieve individual braking pressure per wheel, not per axle. At each point there is an electronic control unit that constantly monitors all parameters that affect braking efficiency, including friction with the road surface, vehicle weight, weight distribution, speed and turning angle.
Two ECU modules are installed, one for the front and one rear axle. They are connected for safety reasons, but send commands separately to actuators on individual wheels. Brembo said it has secured approval for the system in all markets.
The pressure of the brake calipers is done through hydraulics, and Brembo notes that the system is completely electronic and that the hydraulics serve only to apply the calculated force.
Activation of this system on test cars was done with traditional pedals for a better feeling in the driver, but the usual system can be replaced, since the pedal only serves to send the basic signal to the ECU module, which then performs calculations and sends commands to the wheels in milliseconds.
Artificial intelligence prevents the wheels from locking, and it is possible to integrate anti-slip and traction control systems at a minimal additional cost. However, due to the complexity of the Sensify system, its subsequent installation on existing technologies is not possible.
This system has great advantages over traditional technologies, not only because of its compact size and lower weight, but also because of its capacity to constantly adapt to the weight of the vehicle, making it ideal for delivery vehicles, whose weight can vary up to three brought depending on the load.
With the appropriate Sensify application, the “feeling” on the pedal can be further adjusted and programmed. The ecosystem of this system anonymously collects and processes data to provide improvements through software updates.
