brake-by-wire

  • Inevitably there is a "F.R.E.D." (Frustrating Ridiculous Electronic Device) controlling the overly complex system making everything even more intimidating. With throttle-by-wire being the standard system for several years, we've gotten over the butterflies on that system, but the feeling still exists for many techs when it comes to brake-by-wire systems.

  • For more than three decades, I almost always have looked forward to working on problems with new systems on a vehicle. After my first Prius brake-by-wire job, I’m a little more cautious these days!
