Functional scope and safety increased through new technology
Brake system performance has improved continuously over the years. Systems such as ABS (anti-lock braking system) and ESP (electronic stability program) have done much to improve safety. Design teams around the globe are now working to develop systems such as regenerative braking. The new components communicate more easily with radar, lidar and camera systems, facilitating efficient use of additional features, such as adaptive cruise control and emergency braking.
