On the parameters influencing the brake pedal "feel" in passenger cars
Keywords:Brake pedal, brake pedal feel, pedal characteristics, brake comfort, brake safety
Nowadays there exist two driving forces that impose the development of already existing braking systems and development of new components and technologies: legislation and consumers. Alluding to automotive components and brake components in particular, it is noteworthy mentioning that their design has to include the considerations of not only safety, but also comfort for users. “Brake pedal “feel” is of equal significance for both safety and comfort.Consumers expect a good “feel” of braking for easier driving and to fulfill the driver’s intention of deceleration so that to ensure confidence in the sense of personal safety and comfort.
