Brake systems of modern motor vehicles are becoming increasingly complex. Electronic aids such as ABS, ASR and ESP are now standard features in such systems. They are designed to keep the vehicle stable with physical limits and thus help assist in protecting the driver. Each individual system is mutually dependent and in part uses the same sensor signals. With this training system the trainee becomes familiar with and understands how the various systems function and interact.
Brake systems in modern motor vehicles are becoming increasingly complex. The use of electronic aids such as ABS, ASR and ESP is now standard. Their purpose is to keep the vehicle stable within physical limits, thus relieving the driver in critical situations and maintaining manoeuvrability. All three systems use the same components in principle, but the control strategies have been expanded, resulting in a more complex programme sequence on the control unit. The UniTrain system starts exactly at this point and focuses on the overall system understanding, so that the control strategies can be understood and directly reproduced on the test hardware.
