AB Dynamics launches advanced brake robot

LinkedIn +

The CBAR1000 is the first, all-purpose pedal robot introduced by Anthony Best (AB) Dynamics. It combines the high-power braking of AB Dynamics’ dedicated brake robots with the convenience of the CBAR (combined brake and accelerator robot). It is suitable for every type of track test and has been designed to provide good synchronization of test vehicles and ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) targets.

The CBAR1000 is fully compatible with AB Dynamics’ existing driving robots and controllers, ensuring quick and seamless integration and system upgrade. It is easy-to-use and can be set-up quickly using a single, Windows-based software interface, which is common to all of the company’s products.

It was developed by the company in response to customer demand for a CBAR that provides a higher brake force suitable for aggressive emergency stop brake testing. Like the proven and successful CBAR500, it has a compact form factor and offers ease of use, but with a higher brake force of 1,000N at a speed of 1,000mm/s. A single servo actuator controls two pedals and precisely controls the vehicle-under-test’s speed.
