Creating Safer Automobiles with Improved Brake Systems
Brakes are often considered the most crucial systems in vehicles as they employ energy-absorbing mechanisms to convert vehicle movement into heat necessary to stop wheel rotation in dangerous scenarios. The reliable, proper functioning of braking systems ensures optimal safety for end-use consumers. Therefore, safety regulations and standards are critical as manufacturers produce next-generation mobility.
Manufacturers are challenged to develop advanced brake systems in vehicles to improve accident prevention and overall safety. However, these complex systems require high-quality materials that boost mechanical strength, control, and friction resistance.
