Safe braking
EVs and hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking, which utilizes the motor to convert the kinetic energy during deceleration into electrical energy. With energy regeneration, an EV is able to run on less electricity and a hybrid vehicle on less fuel.

The EDIB (Electric Driven Intelligent Brake) allows and controls optimization of the regenerative brake and regular friction brake (hydraulic brake).
Technology Functionality
After stepping on the brake pedal, the system produces natural and adequate braking force that corresponds to the operation. The amount of energy regeneration also needs to be increased as much as possible.

EDIB (Electric Driven Intelligent Brake) controls the regenerative brake and friction brake to support both of these requirements. Further, it also controls the reactive force from the pedal in order to unify the feeling when stepping down on the pedal and the sense of deceleration.

Technology Configuration
When the driver steps on the brake pedal, the stroke sensor detects operation of the brake. That information is communicated to the ECU and controls the motor. The motor engages the piston and amplifies the friction brake's pressure (hydraulic pressure). Through optimum control of the friction brake's hydraulic pressure, the energy regeneration outcome is maximized.
