When it comes to automotive safety, automotive braking systems are one of the most important components you can invest in. Renault has long been a leader in the automotive industry, utilizing innovative brakes designs that help to keep you safe and secure when you behind the wheel. They have recently unveiled a range of advanced features and systems that can enhance your braking experience and safety even further.
The first of these new features is their Antiskid Control System (ASCS). This system can help to prevent potential skids or wheelspins that may occur during wet or slippery conditions, such as heavy rain or icy roads. ASCS uses advanced sensors in the brake system to monitor the wheel speed and traction levels, and can detect impending skids before they happen. If the system identifies a skid, it will then apply pressure to the brake pedals to adjust the levels of traction and wheel speed to ensure safe and efficient braking.
Renault has also developed their own ‘Energy Recovery System’ (ERS), which can help to optimize your brake efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. ERS works by harvesting energy generated by the braking system, before it is lost as heat. This energy is then stored in a battery, meaning that it is available for use whenever you need it. This system can help to increase the efficiency of your brakes, as well as a reduction in power consumption, resulting in less pollution to the environment.
The ‘Sport Mode’ feature is designed for drivers who like to feel in control when driving, however requires a certain level of experience and expertise. This system can help to increase the responsiveness of the brakes and improve handling, by altering the sensitivity of the brake pads. This makes them more responsive to brake input, allowing drivers to make swift changes in braking force, so that they can more accurately control their speed and stay in control when cornering.
Renault has also implemented their own EPAS (Electric Power Assist System), which helps to reduce the effort needed to make steering inputs. This system is activated every time you turn the wheel, meaning you don’t have to put in as much effort when driving, and can help to reduce fatigue on longer journeys or tricky manoeuvres.
Renault’s advanced brake features are designed to enhance your driving experience and make your journey safer and smoother. Whether you’re a racing driver or a regular commuter, these features can help to reduce the effort needed to drive, while increasing the safety and efficacy of the brakes. With the state of the art brake systems on offer, Renault is setting a benchmark of excellence in the automotive world.
