Electric Park Brake
TRW's first-to-market Electric Park Brake (EPB) enhances vehicle safety, driver comfort, convenience and allows for greater freedom of vehicle interior design and packaging.
In addition to providing the parking brake function, EPB is a fully integral part of the brake system that also allows for emergency brake control. When combined with TRW's Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, emergency braking is executed allowing for full four-wheel ABS stop functionality if required.
EPB also eliminates the need for a parking brake lever or pedal and improves vehicle styling, space management and crashworthiness.
