Electronic Brake Force Distribution Overview
Introducing a braking system that adjusts to whatever situation you're in. Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) gives you greater control and improved stability, which are especially useful when cornering or in an emergency. Unlike most braking systems, which distribute brake force through mechanical control, EBD applies brake force precisely through electronic control. It recognises that driving conditions, braking situations and vehicle weight distributions are unique and constantly changing. Working together with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), EBD uses sensors to determine which wheels would provide maximum braking for the conditions – whether that's the front or rear wheels, the left or right. The final result is more precise and effective braking under all conditions.
- The EBD control works with ABS, ensuring the most effective distribution of brake force between the brakes of the front and rear wheels.
- When braking around a corner, it also controls the brake force on the left and right wheels, helping to maintain stability.
- And where braking was controlled mechanically in the past, it is now controlled electronically by the ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
