Sensotronic Brake Control (SBCâ„¢) works electronically, and thus faster and more precisely, than a conventional hydraulic braking system. As soon as you press the brake pedal and the sensors identify the driving situation in hand, the computer makes an exact calculation of the brake force necessary and distributes it between the wheels as required. This allows SBCâ„¢ to critically reduce stopping distances. SBCâ„¢ also helps to optimise safety functions such as ESPÂ®, ASR, ABS and BAS.
With Sensotronic Brake Control, electric impulses are used to pass the driver's braking commands onto a microcomputer which processes various sensor signals simultaneously and, depending on the particular driving situation, calculates the optimum brake pressure for each wheel.
