The increased efficiency of conventional internal combustion engines, the growing market penetration of electric powertrains, the requirements for higher safety, and the demand for automated driving have resulted in new requirements for brake systems. With the electromechanical brake booster, iBooster, Bosch meets these requirements without changing the established brake system layout.

Market Environment

Since the introduction of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) in 1995, brake system requirements have changed significantly. In addition to high expectations regarding reliability and availability of safety-related brake systems (whilst keeping costs low), there are now demands arising from the introduction of more and more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), as well as more efficient engines, and electric powertrains. For ADAS, this means both increasing relevance of Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) regarding features such as adaptive cruise control to standstill and the...
