Tech Session Preview
Orlando, Fla. – Some form of electrification will be a central factor in automotive propulsion systems from this point going forward, which means re-gen braking systems will become more prominent. Tuesday’s SAE Brake Colloquium & Exhibition panel on “Additional Testing/Validation Considerations with Re-gen Braking” will examine the overall outlook for these systems, the challenges they will bring the industry and how the industry can be better prepared to meet them.
Carlos Agudelo, Link Engineering (along with HT Chang, Brake Parts Inc., who could not attend the Colloquium) organized the panel comprised of: himself; Daniel S. Berletchick, Rayloc Inc.; Salkiran,, ZF Friedrichshafen AG; Pietro Durando, ITT Friction Technologies; Ryutaro Misumi, Toyota Motor Corp., and Matthew Robere, General Motors.
Audience questions will frame the discussion which will most likely include areas like brake/brake-system design, emissions, wear versus corrosion as longevity issues, align testing specifications to market needs, and market dynamics – including how longevity of these braking systems might impact OEM versus aftermarket.
