As advanced brake technologies are a significant part of the move towards next-generation electric vehicles, automotive system designers must consider the pros and cons of different brake sensing solutions and their related architectures. This whitepaper covers why using two different sensing technologies like force and position sensing provides an optimum solution that delivers the best of both worlds and supports the evolution from fail-safe to fail-operational systems.

This brief white paper provides an overview of the following:

  • The new challenges facing brake design
  • Which brake pedal sensing technologies are the best choice for electromechanical brake systems?
  • The advantage of using a combination of sensors – the case for redundancy
  • Force sensors for intelligent brake pedal sensing
