Electromagnetic braking systems use electronic and magnetic power to apply wheel brakes. Our system utilizes the concept of electromagnetism in order to achieve braking without friction. Eddy braking improves the reliability &life of brakes since they do not wear out over time due to friction. This needs comparatively very less maintenance and no oiling. Electromagnetic braking is an upcoming technological replacement for traditional braking systems. The main objective behind the proposed use of these eddy braking system in automobiles is that it is frictionless. This leads to a very low maintenance cost due to no friction and no oiling. Also traditional braking systems are prone to slipping while this one is guaranteed to apply brakes to the vehicle. So without friction or need of lubrication this technology is a preferred replacement for traditional braking. Also it is quite smaller in size compared to the traditional braking systems.
To make electromagnetic brakes work, a magnetic flux when passed in a direction perpendicular to the rotating direction of the wheel, we see eddy current flowing in a direction opposite to the rotation of the wheel. This creates an opposing force to the wheel rotation and in turn slows down the wheel. Thus we achieve electromagnetic braking as a better braking system for future automobiles.
