I know the benefits and drawbacks of air braking systems vs hydraulic braking systems since we discussed it here, and I can’t help but wonder will we ever do away with hydraulic braking systems?
Why could you not have 4 electrically operated calipers at each wheel? They could be controlled by two different sensors at the pedal and have two separate controllers. You could also set them up that if they lose signal or power the brakes would apply similar to air brake systems.
We have had drive by wire throttle systems for years and have had no issues, why not brake by wire?
Are we afraid of brake by wire, or are there reasons not to have such a system?
