*Definition:

An automotive brake system is a brake system that takes the kinetic energy of a vehicle in motion and turns in into thermal energy through friction. This energy is utilized for slowing down and stopping the vehicle. It is made up of a master cylinder, a number of tubes and rubber hoses, and a drum or wheel cylinder.

An automotive brake system is made up of a master cylinder, a number of tubes and rubber hoses, and a drum or wheel cylinder. The master cylinder is located in the engine compartment on the firewall. The master cylinder supplies hydraulic brake fluid force to the brakes. The brake fluid is then directed through a series of tubes and reinforced rubber hoses to the wheels. The anti-lock braking system is one of the important components of automotive brake systems. This system is designed to prevent a car from locking up when the driver suddenly applies the brakes. The system pulses brake pressure to the affected wheels ten or more times per second. It is very useful on wet roads.

Aside from preventing the car from locking up, the anti-lock braking system is able to maintain steering control when the driver is on ice. These systems can be found on most modern vehicles. They can be effective on both wet and dry surfaces.
