Automotive brakes have evolved from simple wooden block brakes which were used in steel rimmed wheels, to the modern day disc and drum brakes with electronic assistance. The key function of brakes in automobiles is to slow down or stop the vehicle in motion. A majority of the brakes used in automobiles are of friction types, in which the brakes use friction to slow down the vehicle. In this, brakes convert the kinetic energy of the moving wheels to heat energy via friction, which is then dissipated into the atmosphere. Apart from friction, another type of brake is the electromagnetic or electro-mechanical brakes. These use electromagnetic force to apply mechanical resistance. Electromagnetic brakes are popularly used in trains and trams. However, recent designs have increased the possibility of using electromagnetic brakes in aircraft, to reduce the wear and tear on the tires with regenerative braking (energy recovery mechanism). As discussed earlier, since a majority of the automobiles use friction brakes, the scope of this study is confined to disc and drum brakes, which are the two types of friction brakes. In drum brakes, the friction is caused by brake shoes, whereas in disc brakes, the friction material is called brake pads. In addition to the key function of slowing down the vehicle (deceleration), automotive brakes also deal with the absorption of kinetic energy. Modern brakes are associated with electronic assistance and hence, are known as electronic brake systems (EBS) as a whole. An EBS is composed of any of the functions such as Anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability program (ESP), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS), etc. With all these electronic assistance functions, modern automotive brakes are not limited to deceleration only, but they also play an important role in the driver’s assistance and safety. Increasing national and international regulations towards vehicle safety, regulations for vehicle stopping distance, and changing customer orientation in the direction of personal safety.
