Welcome to Dresden, Germany, and the 4th annual EuroBrake conference
and exhibition.
Over the course of the last four years, EuroBrake has grown to become the largest braking
technology event in the world. FISITA is pleased to announce a sold-out exhibition
featuring 86 companies from 19 countries and our largest ever technical programme,
comprised of 27 technical sessions with presentations from an international selection of
authors, representing both industry and academia.
EuroBrake plays a vital role in offering engineers, manufacturers, academics and
researchers the opportunity to join together to discuss matters of importance to the
industry, disseminate ideas and share valuable information on the global platform that
EuroBrake provides.
At EuroBrake 2015 we will continue to develop important connections between the
key areas of the industry. This synergy is apparent in the diverse sectors that EuroBrake
represents, including participants from passenger car, commercial vehicle, rail, military and
industrial backgrounds.
The conference has proven to be a highly successful stage for communication between
industry and academia. This year, the Strategy Panel pays particular focus to the
relationship between these areas, identifying the mutual challenges and developing
strategies for how to face them.
Our opening plenary will provide insight into the complex path towards piloted driving, as
well as focussing on the major trends that are driving the braking industry forward in both
CV and the wider automotive arena.
The EuroBrake technical programme has been extended to include three new sessions that
highlight a selection of the most relevant topics in the industry: Global Standardisation,
where significant engineering profits are being directed; Environment and Brake Wear
Emissions, a pressing issue that puts the industry in sight of wider society; and Rail
Technology, an exclusive session that will highlight advances in this sector. Additional
topics with a special focus at this year’s event are manufacturing and quality control,
parking brakes, dynamometer and test technology, and brake components.
We are thrilled to introduce the Daimler Student Innovation Competition this year, a global
initiative that has inspired young engineers around the world to design a technical poster
presenting their vision of what brakes will look like in the future. The grand final of the
competition is open to all delegates and features an exciting keynote speaker.
We would like to thank this year’s sponsors, the EuroBrake Steering Committee, Advisory
Board, Chairs, reviewers and the staff of FISITA, who have worked tirelessly to organise the
Finally, we offer special thanks to all authors and participants for choosing EuroBrake as
your forum to meet, share knowledge, and make connections. EuroBrake depends on the
continued support and involvement of the braking community. In this spirit, we ask that
you take the time to use the EuroBrake app, downloadable in all major app stores, to rate
the speakers in all sessions that you attend.
We are delighted that you have joined us at EuroBrake 2015, and hope that you enjoy
the conference.

Opportunities and Challenges on the Way
As the automotive industry strives towards mobility that is safe, efficient
Towards Piloted Driving
and comfortable, piloted driving is a cutting edge solution that could
provide the way forward for driver assistance systems.
Thomas Müller
However, social and political aspects such as regulation, infrastructure
Head of Development of Braking, Steering
and social acceptance mean that the development of this technology
and Driver Systems
must be steady. Whilst these wider issues are discussed, key technology
questions must be considered by the industry, such as which braking
system is right for piloted driving. The challenges and opportunities of
piloted driving must be understood to develop an efficient roadmap for
the future.
Adaptation is vital for braking systems to keep pace with the everDevelopment Trends in Commercial Vehicle changing scope of the automotive industry, but so too is innovation.

Dr. Thomas Dieckmann
Innovation Manager
WABCO Development GmbH
This analysis of the commercial vehicle and wider braking industry will
demonstrate how the latest trends are developing, including brake
management for dynamic hybrid integration, driver assistance with brake
intervention on highways and in cities, the cooperation of braking and
steering systems, new approaches to parking brakes and how global CV
platforms require a modular braking system.

EuroBrake 2015 Strategy Panel Saal 4 and Saal 5
Bold Thinking
and Collective Know-how
Facing the Challenges Together –
Industry and Academia
Luca Martinotto
R&D Executive Director
ITT Italia S.r.l.
Engineering departments are challenged
continuously by paradoxical forces when
developing braking systems. Time and
resources for development are
shortening, whilst simultaneously there is
the constant pressure of market
globalisation, adding an increased
complexity to the profession.
To face these industry challenges, we
must embrace Collective Know-how which
will result in better, bolder thinking and
more robust ideas.
ITT will share its vision and strategy on
these topics during the Open Seminar.
Eight top decision makers
from leading industrial
companies have been
carefully selected to discuss
their requirements in research,
technology, materials and
manufacturing in the year
to come, before entering into
a lively Q&A with the audience.
Open to all EuroBrake participants
As we move into a future where the demand
for global mobility solutions is at an all time
high, the automotive industry faces
increasingly difficult technology challenges.
In this extremely competitive marketplace,
the ideas provided by academia can be
crucial in helping to determine the direction
of the industry.
The exchange of information between the
industrial and academic sectors is key in
understanding how to tackle current
limitations. This year, the EuroBrake Strategy
Panel will see braking industry leaders request
academic experts to create and advance the
technologies that will shape the automotive
industry in the year ahead.
15:30–16:00Break Exhibition Hall
Georg Ostermeyer
TU Braunschweig
Academics will have the opportunity to learn
firsthand the kinds of technologies that will
be required in the coming year, allowing
our research to be guided by industry need.
Jan Münchhoff
Companies are always in need
of new advancements from academia.
Now is our chance to ask for them.
As part of this new approach, the EuroBrake
Steering Committee will sustainably involve
young professionals at the beginning of their
careers or academic studies, further fostering
the collaboration between industry and
academia. By highlighting the appeal and
social significance of current brake-related
topics, we can inspire young professionals to
find research and development solutions for
future challenges.
Participants will reassemble at EuroBrake 2016
to analyse the successes resulting from this
year’s panel exchange, and to see where the
research, design, development and production
of brakes can be further improved. The yearly
EuroBrake Strategy Panel will be an excellent
platform for professionals, new and
established, from both fields to join together
to propose a framework for the future of
EuroBrake Strategy Panels have always
enabled interesting debates around
important topics.
Now we want to let the debate drive
the topics year on year. This new
approach will see the panel set itself
challenges which encourage
collaborative research and
development opportunities to take
away and progress.
We will then ask the panel to report
back on progress at next year’s

Motorcycle attempt, to use AirBack Brake Technology.
Find out more at booth 48.
The Wind in Your Wheels
AirBack is a revolutionary new product, being launched
at the show, which enhances the performance of disc
braking systems. AirBack provides a ‘green’ solution to
both stiction and frictional drag, associated with disc
brakes. Some of the benefits of this unique and
patented technology include:
–– Eliminates pad glazing
–– Reduces brake pad temperature after braking
–– No need for cross-drilled or slotted brake discs
–– Can integrate with existing vehicle control systems
–– Reduces fuel consumption/enhances vehicle
–– Compatible with electric and hybrid vehicles
–– Significantly reduces brake dust
–– Can be used to thaw brake pads in extreme cold
–– Operates using only very minimal electrical load
–– Significantly extends life of brake system components
–– Compliant with vehicle regulations and legislation
–– Environmentally friendly in many ways
By combining direct cooling and friction free/dustless
pads (when not in use) Airback provides enhanced
vehicle performance and fuel efficiency whilst also
improving brake component life.
For a hands-on demonstration, where you can literally
feel the difference, please visit stand 48 or contact us to
arrange an appointment before or after the show.

Industries. Thanks to the knowledge and experience in
assisting prestigious clients in many branches of
Industry, MaGyc offers its ability of Problem Solver to
industrial applications in Test and Measurement, with
particular experience in industrial environments NDT –
Non Destructive Testing.
For the type of applications created, MaGyc has a deep
knowledge in data acquisition and in data analysis
acquired in industrial environments, by using different
methodologies and techniques including nonconventional ones (neural networks, fuzzy logyc, TRIZ,
etc.). Systems developed by MaGyc find application in
many sectors of industry: Mechanical, Automotive,
Packaging, Ceramics, Electronics, Aerospace,
Appliances, Plastic, Construction, and many others.
Vibration analysis
Checking the dynamic characteristics of the product
and components, our technology detects the presence
of cracks, porosity, incorrect heat treatment, and
machining errors. The technique compares the
‘frequency response’ of each product with that relative
to a reference one previously acquired. The test cycle
takes approximately 0.5 sec. The vibrational technique
is used on various brake components (disks, drums,
calipers, pads, etc.), on sintered materials, on ceramics,
and on castings, forgings, molded materials, etc.
Ultrasound Analysis
In general ultrasound techniques are used to detect
cracks, porosities or flaws that may be present within
any artifact. It’s a technique successfully used in
thickness measurements, even inside milling machines.
Considerable experience has been gained in the C-Scan
analysis, used to check mechanical components, in
aerospace, in railway industry, and in the verification of
electrical contacts. MaGyc has also experience in the use
of ultrasound (conventional and phased array) for the
control of weldings, brazed, glued, and for the control of
joints obtained by Friction Stir Welding (FSW).
Vision Systems
MaGyc offers multiple solutions of Automatic Vision
Systems according to specific requirements of the
customer, often by integrating robots, manipulators
and other measuring instruments. The proposed
solutions are built with proprietary software operating
on industrial PC, with real-time analysis of images
captured by the matrix or linear cameras, even with the

Discover Dresden & Restaurant Guide
Bidding a fond ‘adieu’ to the impressive city of Lille in France,
this year we return to the place that witnessed the creation of
EuroBrake in the heart of Saxony – Dresden.
Picturesquely situated in a valley on the river Elbe, the city is a
stunning example of Baroque and Rococo architecture, most of
it meticulously rebuilt following the Second World War, whilst
boasting a strong economic presence, partly driven by the region’s
successful automotive manufacturing industry.
For those visiting Dresden for the first time, a casual stroll around
the Old Town is easily achieved from the conference centre and
offers delights such as the famous Semper Opera House, known
for its premieres including major works by Wagner and Strauss,
the Fürstenzug, a grand mural of a mounted procession of the
rulers of Saxony, and the Grünes Gewölbe (Green Vault), a museum
containing the largest collection of treasures in Europe.
More information
More regular visitors to the area may wish to explore sights further
from the beaten track. The Elbe Sandstone Mountains just outside
the city offer fantastic hiking opportunities with unparalleled views
and diverse terrain. Other notable attractions include the Dresden
Armoury, the Transport Museum, the Dresden suspension railway
(opened in 1901) and the beloved ‘Blue Wonder’ bridge – allegedly
originally green.
Across the river, New Town is a favourite hangout for those seeking
bustling bars and beautiful boutique shops on tree lined streets. At
night, locals pour into lively bars, or cross back over the river to the
paved streets surrounding the magnificent Frauenkirche, where a
plethora of high quality restaurants cater for all tastes with a wide
range of traditional German fare and international delicacies.
From Dresden specialties like Fettbemme
and Krautwickel, to Michelin starred
International delights, Dresden has an
extensive range of high quality restaurants
to meet colleagues and new connections in
