Sensotronic brake control

Recently, automotive industry pays more attention on the improvement of the safety and comfort of their vehicle models. The new car model of Mercedes- Benz SL 500 justifies this, by incorporating the new technological innovations like Active body suspension (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Sensotronic brake control (SBC) etc. Sensotronic brake control is an innovative electro hydraulic brake system which gives maximum safety and comfort on braking.

This Seminar illustrates mechanism and performance characteristic of Sensotronic brake control with the aid of the theory and mechanism of a common hydraulic brake system. In SBC, various factors while braking such as wheel speed, braking force for each wheel, steering angle etc are senses by electronic means. With electronic impulses are used to pass drivers braking commands onto a micro computer, which processes various sensor signal simultaneously, and depends on particular driving situation, calculates optimum pressure for each wheel. As a result SBC offers even greater active safety then conventional braking systems when braking in a corner and slippery surface
