Abstract:
The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) was introduced in year 2000. with a caliper integrated actuator, controlled by a standalone ECU. At the same time a variety of system architectures and actuators with different technologies were developed. Cable pullers, Motor on Caliper, Drum in Hat EPB. In 2012 the boom started - with a concentration on caliper integrated systems and with an integration of the ECU into the ESC system.New trends are requiring EPB for different reasons - comfort and controllable standstill are requested. So EPB systems have to be adapted to the new situation.With the influence of the commercial situation the EPB systems and actuators have to be seen under new aspects - standardization, modular boxes and simplification are the targets.A look on system and actuator solutions shows a way to fulfill these requirements, bringing EPB on the way to a Standard.
