As vehicle types and configurations have evolved over the years, so have braking systems. Various actuation methods and applications present different validation requirements. This webinar will provide an overview of the various types of brake lines, which standard test methods are generally required, and how they are applied to the testing process. A discussion of electronic and regenerative braking system design and future testing considerations will also be included.
The 45-60 minute webinar will include details on:
- FMVSS 106 Requirements
- Air Brake Hose & Tube Testing
- Hydraulic Brake Hose Testing
- Vacuum Brake Hose Testing
- Electronic / Regenerative Brake Systems
- Common failure modes
