Volkswagen Group’s order for the new ZF brake control system covers several million vehicles – starting with the recently introduced ID.3 and ID.4 and continuing with future models based on the manufacturer’s MEB e-drive platform MEB. 

With an optimised software interface, ZF’s new braking system can be integrated and networked into the electronic architecture of the vehicles. 

The ZF system also supports driver assistance features such as automatic emergency braking. In addition, ZF’s solution replaces previously necessary mechanical components (such as the parking lock) with software functions, which saves both weight and costs. 

“We meet the trend toward electromobility with our entire range of technological solutions – not just in driveline technology,” said ZF CEO, Wolf-Henning Scheider. Group. “This supply order from Volkswagen emphasises how our competencies for braking systems as well as for networked systems contribute to increasing the range of our customers electric vehicles. To this end, our systems help to meet high comfort and safety requirements.”

ZF brake control is based on a combination of the company’s electronic brake booster (EBB) and its electronic stability control (ESC). The system is part of a software network housed in the stability control unit.

It helps meet stringent safety standards set by the European road safety association EuroNCAP. New testing protocols for functions such as automatic emergency braking drive the need for more powerful boost to provide braking force even faster and more dynamically.
