Brake by wire uses advanced technology to control brakes using electronic components replacing the traditional components such as pumps, hoses, etc. with electronic sensors and actuators. Brake By wire is also called by the name EBS (Electronic Braking System) and is majorly employed in heavy duty commercial vehicles. An electronic pedal module with pedal feel simulator and electronic sensor pick-up replaces the traditional mechanical-hydraulic linkage. EBS uses technology that relies on compressed air for stopping power, and it only controls the air through the valves. It enhances the precision of braking and helps to shorten the braking distance. The technology has been designed in such a way that in the event of a failure of electronic components the vehicle will still be able to stop using the ordinary air brake control pressure. The brakes may still be conventional, but the EBS implements all brake and stability functions. The brake by wire systems is quiet, comfortable and compact. While the EBS is potentially a lot for safer than the traditional brakes, due to safety concerns brake by wire technology has not yet been adopted all across the automotive industry. However, braking systems that are capable of working with a reduced amount of data are currently undergoing research and development to provide a braking system that cannot fail like the tradition brake systems. This will eventually make Brake by Wire technology safe enough for widespread adoption.
