Haldex enters new phase for autonomous vehicle braking systems 22 February 2019

Haldex has entered a concept phase with a major truck manufacturer for testing of its ‘scalable brake system’, with the brake system maker expecting to start a development contract by the end of this year.

“We have worked closely with the customer during the fall and have conducted a number of tests where our test results have been far better than the other solutions presented,” says Åke Bengtsson (pictured), president and CEO of Haldex.

“We therefore, with confidence, look forward to prove this under the concept phase that is now initiated,” he adds.

So-called scalable brake systems feature advanced vehicle dynamics, using sensors and algorithms to get the tractor and trailer to brake and follow the desired direction in an optimal way. They also have an open interface with the OEM’s vehicle motion management system, and work with both pneumatic and electrified brake systems.

Haldex says that vehicle system architecture “is about to be rewritten” with the advent of autonomous driving.
