The braking system of a car is undoubtedly one of its more important feature. The aim of this work is to create a better braking system.
The purpose is to replace existing hydraulic systems with an electro mechanical alternative to improve performance, controllability and to provide more environmentally and friendly solution.
Research indicated that a system based on a magnetic phenomenon named eddy - currents could produce the desired result.
This is a contact less system there is no wear of brake pads and maintenance cares are also reduced.
Another major advantage associated with this design lies in the absence of moving parts, exception made naturally to the rotating disk, thus limiting the chances of malfunction
