If a system failure occurs, a fall-back situation is given through the fact that with the remaining hydraulic circuit, the two front wheels can be used to brake the vehicle. With the SBC (EHB) system, several additional functions are possible. 26 Optimized brake function by SBC. ) Accident Avoidance brake assistant increases the brake line pressure until the antilock braking controller reacts. Also, a pre-filling of the brake lines is possible in the case where the acceleration pedal is relieved with a jerking motion in anticipation of the need for braking.
In a braking situation at the wheel with the higher brake force, a moment arises that corrects the tendency to Automotive Safety Handbook Deceleration ......................

This is accomplished by the use of angular sensors. In the future, even more advanced systems are foreseeable. One example is additional infrared headlamps to identify pedestrians or other road obstacles in darkness. In addition to vertical adjustment, a computer-controlled horizontal headlamp adjustment based on either the steering wheel angle or, in the future, in combination with a positioning sensor such as GPS (global positioning satellite) is possible. The benefit of this solution lies in the fact that road curves are illuminated before the vehicle has reached the next curve of the road.
