Today most electric and hybrid electric vehicles offered on market are equipped with a brake-by-wire system for efficient and comfortable braking. The characteristic generated by the pedal simulator often is described in studies as synthetic and not authentic, although today’s systems usually try to simulate conventional characteristics in case of an authentic and safe feeling. That’s why we defined two main objectives for our research: First eliminate the pedal simulator respectively the problems getting out of it. Second find an appropriate HMI with its optimal characteristic that additionally should be set up for customisation.
