Test drives have shown the new electronic wedge brake from Siemens VDO Automotive to have excellent braking performance. Experts rate the dynamics and deceleration particularly highly.
This is sophisticated technology, and handling it requires powerful control systems. Among the tools that Siemens VDO Automotive is using to develop the systems and test them in a real vehicle is a modular dSPACE prototyping system, which controls the brakes. dSPACE’s FlexRay tools are used to develop the FlexRay network for the entire brake system.
