Evolving Brake Systems
Which cars do drivers find most reliable?
With this question in mind, we pursue expanded functions for the brake system.
ADVICS, which has been advancing the safety and comfort of braking, actively engages in the development of comprehensive brake systems beyond that of brake components. Our efforts to develop safer, more comfortable and sophisticated brake systems as well as to improve their basic functions satisfy the diversifying market needs.
ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)
Anti-lock brake system prevents wheels from locking during emergency stopping. They maintain vehicle control and stability even on slippery road surfaces.
BA (Brake Assist)
Brake assist technology increases brake pressure in an emergency situation, maximizing stopping power.
ESC (Electronic Stability Control)
Electronic stability control ensures vehicle stability by automatically controlling brakes and the engine system when sensors detect vehicle instability during cornering.
AEBS (Autonomous Emergency Brake System)
This system employs a vehicle-mounted radar to automatically detect obstacles and provide braking assist to help prevent sudden collisions.
ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control)
The adaptive cruise control uses radar to measure the speed and distance of the vehicle directly in front of the driver and automatically accelerates or decelerates to maintain safe distance and speed.
4WD-TCS (Traction Control System)
The four-wheel drive traction control system improves driving performance by preventing wheel spin during muddy or rugged off-road driving.
HAC (Hill-start Assist Control)
This system is used to ensure safe starts on upward slopes.
Vehicle sliding down that can occur when switching from the brake to accelerator is prevented with brake control.
DAC (Downhill Assist Control)
This system allows the driver to comfortably turn the steering wheel on steep downward slopes or snowy roads without tires locking.
By applying a brake to an appropriate wheel, it supports the safety driving.
Regenerative brake system
This innovative system reuses kinetic energy recovered during hydraulic braking, increasing energy efficiency.
