The anti-lock braking system needs some way of knowing when a wheel is about to lock up. The speed sensors, which are located at each wheel, or in some cases in the differential, provide this information.
Brakes are essential to safely operating a motor vehicle. Without the ability to slow and stop our vehicles, accidents would occur at every stoplight, yield sign and drive-thru in America. The way brakes are built has evolved over time, but modern braking systems are comprised of service brakes, parking brakes and emergency brakes. Each type of brake is involved in particular activities in a motor vehicle, and drivers should be familiar with how to operate each safely.
Hydraulic Regenerative braking is a large advantage to a hybrid system, especially when the vehicle is subject to frequent stops. Normally, in a conventional vehicle, all of the kinetic energy is lost to heat, an irreversible process. A hybrid however captures some of this energy through regenerative braking to be reused the next time the vehicle accelerates. Through simulations, it was estimated that 70% of the kinetic energy of the vehicle would be recycled through a regenerative braking event
