Design of Braking System in the Lightweight Electric Vehicle (Wojciech Skarka, Ryszard Skoberla)

1. Introduction Braking system of the Urban type vehicle designated to Shell Eco-marathon [2] was designed and constructed last year. We are working on this project in the Scientific Students Association of Machinery Design [1, 3] at Silesian University of Technology. Our car Bytel is involved in the Eco-marathon competition, which is organized by Shell. The competition task is to construct a vehicle that travels the longest distance, using as little energy as possible. The competition takes place every year in Rotterdam, and the form of the race simulates normal driving conditions.
