Brake-By-Wire (BBW) technology is the ability to control brakes through electrical means. A BBW system implemented with one micro-controller and actuator per wheel can provide more precise braking. The BBW system is considered to be one of the most significant innovations among X-By-Wire technologies that will revolutionize the automotive industry. The BBW system has the advantages of fast response speed and high braking torque control precision that can potentially replace the traditional hydraulic braking system (HBS). This thesis aims to investigate advanced BBW systems and solve their related issues.
