AI braking system is expected to reach the market in 2024

Italian brake manufacturer Brembo announced in October that it will release Sensify Brakes, an AI-enhanced brake system that promises complete driving pleasure and safety when launched at the factory.

In addition to locking and stability control, it also replaces hydraulic control with electronic control for design flexibility and more precise control.

It should be noted that the integration of AI into vehicles is nothing new, as algorithms control playlists, maps, driver assistance or even autonomous driving to varying degrees. But the AI-based braking system has sparked people's curiosity about how it works.

Sensify uses a dedicated app to program itself based on the data and to improve the driving experience. The system must use predictive algorithms, sensors, and data management tools to provide a digital brain that can control each wheel independently.

The modern anti-lock brake system was first introduced in the 1970s to help lock the wheels during emergency braking.

Hence, you need to understand what is happening on each wheel and then let the AI ​​apply the braking force to the different wheels.

Despite the digital footprint, the physical mechanism has a stronger sense of presence than the software in the Sensify system.

“The mechanics and software will soon be on par,” said Daniel Schillaci, CEO of Brembo. Software will dominate the braking system by the end of this century.

The intelligent braking system applies pressure to each wheel individually

The company plans to open a tech lab in Silicon Valley before the end of the year to further its digital strategy.

Use data collection to improve the driving experience and keep the system up to date. However, it is not clear how the system deals with privacy and security concerns for the data it collects.

One of the advantages of Sensify is an adaptive driving mode, adapting to weather and road conditions and a shorter blocking time.

The system is more cost-effective throughout the vehicle's life cycle because it uses electromechanical controls to remove brake fluid, reducing maintenance costs and brake disc consumption and torque.

For electric or hybrid cars, better control of regenerative braking can help reduce battery size.

Brembo explained that the system is linked to two electronic control units. But you send the order separately. This is to avoid problems when the AI ​​brain has hardware failures.

The system is expected to reach the market in 2024. The company said it is designed for multiple types of vehicles. However, it is not clear how much customization this work will take with each type.
