MK C1 for highly automated driving (HAD)


Continental’s electronic braking system MK C1 is an integrated and compact brake system which meets todays and future requirements: vacuum less braking, energy recuperation, high performance for emergency brake assist. The MK C1 for highly automated driving has now a redundant fallback-level to enable the next step towards automated driving. MK C1 HAD system architecture with two networked braking system units offers a degradation concept to ensure the required deceleration level at all times, without driver interaction. By combining the MK C1 with a MK 100 based Hydraulic Brake Extension, redundant braking systems for highly automated driving can be installed with minimum effort.

  • HAD Brake System for fail operational applications
  • Well known base technology
  • Base brake system in vehicle platform identical for non HAD and HAD vehicles (MK C1)
  • Low application and release effort
  • Fail operation Autopilot Brake function (Abrake) with possible maximum deceleration from 0,6 g up to mostly 0,9 g 
  • Wheel slip control function (ABS & EBD) in fallback to prevent overbraking and destabilization
  • Wheel Speed information in fallback 
  • Continuous testing of fallback availability
  • Box Volume: 5.000 - 5.700 cm³
