Control electronics for new e-bike ABS
For more safety: e-bike ABS with rollover protection
Break Force One
An ABS system for e-bikes: this innovation was first presented to experts at the trade fair “Eurobike 2016”. GIGATRONIK created a hardware safety concept and developed the affiliated control electronics for this pioneering project. The compact, 250-gram ABS system is integrated into the brake line system and can therefore be positioned on any location between the brake handle and the brake calliper. Alongside the electronics, GIGATRONIK also modelled and implemented the necessary control algorithms. These algorithms continuously analyse the trip data which are gleaned through numerous sensors on the wheel. In this way, the ABS achieves an optimal braking distance, especially during dangerous braking on wet and slippery surfaces. Furthermore, the ABS protects against rollovers by automatically recognising different driving situations and surfaces.
