Technology Enhances the Brakes Used In Automobiles
The rising usage of automobiles has given rise to numerous of accidents, but countless accidents are prevented with the usage of Brakes in the automobiles. In the automobile industries, while in the process of manufacturing, the brakes are being focused on to ensure the safety and are being updated with the course of time.
In previous days, the brakes used by the automobiles were of single flexible stainless steel band, which were wrapped around a drum on the rear axle; with the force apply on brake pedal the band contracted to grip the drum.

The new inventory of the European cars became popular with the disc systems lined up with friction material that slowed down the wheels in motion effectively. The asbestos lining on the discs certainly silenced the noise of applying brake.
With the invention of hydraulic brakes installed in the system was a further development for the automobile industry. These used cylinders and tubes for applying fluid pressure against the wheels to slow it down.
Other Added Features to the Hydraulic Brakes
• Power assist
• Vacuum Boosters
The new generation uses Computer assisted antilock brakes, which work in an incomparable manner.
