In this paper, the Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) scheme for Brake-by-Wire (BBW) system is presented. Recently, the use of electronic components is growing, so error signals will be encountered caused by Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).These error signals will cause system failures of BBW systems. To solve these problems in the BBW system, we design a HARQ scheme which is a combination of Forward Error Correction (FEC) scheme and Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) scheme. FEC scheme uses Reed-Solomon (R-S) code to correct random errors and burst errors and ARQ scheme uses Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) code to detect errors in the systems. In this paper, the performance of FEC scheme, ARQ scheme and HARQ scheme is presented through the experiment and we see clearly how the fault tolerant logic for BBW system works.

Detail

Mechanical kinetic energy recovery systems have been proposed so far as a driveline component made up of a flywheel, a clutch and a continuously variable transmission connected to the driving wheels and designed for long time and high energy storage and high power charge and discharge rate. In the approach proposed here, there are actually two small KERS, one acting individually on each wheel, made up of just a clutch, a CVT and the flywheel. In this system, braking on one of the two rear wheels otherwise not motored is obtained by engaging the CVT through the clutch. Then, the wheel reduces its speed while the flywheel accelerates. Powering of one of the two rear wheels is then obtained when needed by engaging again the CVT through the clutch. Then, the wheel increases its speed while the flywheel decelerates. When the clutch is disconnected, flywheel and rear wheel are decoupled. This configuration is aimed to a further reduce the complexity and further reduce the costs of the KERS. This KERS has same potentials to reduce the fuel consumption of the traditional driveline based KERS. The system also offers the benefits to produce same accelerations of a four wheel drive car powered by a larger engine with a two wheel drive arrangement.

Detail

A new concept for the improvement of cast vented brake disks has been developed which re-lies on the interesting properties of a new type of constructed material: 3D wire structures. This type of material shows a comparably high specific compressive modulus and strength combined with a large internal surface area which is completely accessible by external fluid flow. The high strength of the 3D wire structures is obtained by brazing of the wire joints. It is conceivable to replace the cast internal venting structure of a disk brake by 3D wire structures and hence improve the venting of the rotors. At the same time, considerable weight savings can be expected as a cast fin structure usually occupies about 50 vol% of the space between the rotors, whereas a 3D wire structure occupies only 10 to 20 vol% of the available space. Moreover, the narrow spacing of the 3D wire structure may account for a very homogeneous heat transfer, thus avoiding hot spots and improving the level of comfort. This paper discusses relevant mechanical and thermal properties of 3D wire structures with regard to their applica-tion in vented disk brakes.

Technical Programme

Europe leads the world in the research, development and manufacture of high technology braking systems. Now, we have a dedicated, annual conference where the leading experts from industry and academia throughout Europe and world-wide can come together to present their latest work, discuss new ideas, debate future directions and find solutions to our common problems.

Organised through FISITA, the world body for automotive engineers, the first EuroBrake conference will take place in the beautiful city of Dresden. It will combine first-class technical presentations and exhibits with unrivalled networking opportunities for all of us who are working to create braking systems which are safe, efficient, refined and environmentally sustainable.

The organising committee believe that the world-wide braking community can only meet these challenges through innovative new technologies ranging from raw materials through to advanced electronics. But to succeed, our solutions must be practical, efficient and affordable. This calls for even greater collaboration and knowledge sharing among the world’s braking experts from every sector including passenger cars, commercial vehicles, rail, aerospace and industrial applications.

This is why we have established EuroBrake.

Braking systems are among the most critically important and technically challenging aspects of any vehicle. Today, those of us who work as engineers and scientists in the braking field are facing more intense pressure from our customers and clients than ever before. This is because efficient braking has such a crucial part to play in improving safety whilst also helping to conserve energy and reduce harmful emissions – the top three priorities for the transport industry in the 21st century.


At the same time, today’s discerning drivers demand ever greater levels of driving enjoyment, comfort and refinement from their vehicles. Here again, braking is vital to satisfying customer expectations in the fiercely competitive automotive markets. Likewise in rail and aerospace vehicles, and in general industrial applications, safe and energy-efficient braking systems are of vital importance.
