Braking systems are becoming an increasingly important feature in cars. First, they play a key role in vehicle safety. Second, they are an integral part of the advanced technology required for automated driving. Roadworthy driverless cars are expected to appear by 2020. First steps in this direction are the many driver-assist systems developed over the last few years that already significantly enhance braking systems today. In addition, driver-assist systems also support emergency braking when the situation calls for it, provide use radar to check the distance to the vehicle ahead and prevent rear-end collisions by means of predictive braking.
