Advanced Truck Braking System featured on BBC


Tinsley Bridge Group works collaboratively as members of the Cambridge Vehicles Dynamics Consortium (CVDC) with the heavy-duty truck industry’s leading manufacturers and Cambridge University. The aim is to develop improved systems that maximise truck safety, minimise road damage and improve ride, productivity and fuel consumption.

Work in the consortium includes a new braking system that chops a fifth off the stopping distance of a HGV. A unique wheel slip control system uses integrated parameter estimation algorithms to optimise tyre slip continuously during braking, thereby maximising deceleration while maintaining vehicle manoeuvrability.
