What could be the result if the concept of a vacuum cleaner is applied to a vehicle’s braking system?
Wonder no more as a Swedish company has come up with a new autonomous braking system that literally sucks the vehicle onto the road.
Autoliv’s vacuum braking system, a.k.a Torricelli brake, is said to reduce stopping distance by up to 40-percent in speeds up to 64 km/h.
Technically, the Torricelli brake is a vacuum plate that’s connected to the vehicle’s automatic braking system. It deploys when the vehicle’s system detects an emergency braking situation.
Check out the video posted below to see how this vacuum braking system works.
