June 24, 2019—Chassis Brakes recently previewed a new fluid-free brake system.

The company's new brake-by-wire Smart Brake is designed to replace hydraulic systems and will serve as the foundation for future autonomous-vehicle brake systems. A specially-fitted demonstration vehicle was used for the program in Sweden.

The "hands-on" test sessions gave 10 individual customer teams an opportunity to experience the Smart Brake's full-service braking performance on four wheels, including anti-lock braking and traction control, as well as integrated parking brake capabilities. It was the first opportunity Chassis Brakes customers have had to road test a "fully dry" brake-by-wire system.
