Electric parking brake system: motor unit
1999 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis work has been carried out to examine the commercial potential of a motor unit in an electric parking brake system. The work was commissioned by Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) in Gothenburg, Sweden. The idea of the system originates from a collaborative project between VCC and LuleƄ University of Technology in 1998, called Sirius. To gain knowledge about the original system a rigorous analyse was made. By utilize a systematic design approach a proposal for the final solution of the motor unit, was derived. By using evaluation criterions stated in cooperation with VCC the most suitable solution where derived. The chosen solution where subjected to detail design. The final proposal uses a simple mechanical principle which facilitates manufacture and assembly. The key factors in the evaluation of the motor unit is the cost, size and weight. The conclusion, after evaluation, is that the concept after some further improvements regarding size and weight, can be said to have a good commercial potential.
