Dear fellow engineers,
On 8th and 9th of May, SAE BRASIL – Seção Caxias do Sul will hold the 14th
SAE BRASIL International Brake Colloquium & Engineering Display – Motion
Control, in Farroupilha – RS – Brazil.
This traditional event is the most important of
brakes segment for automotive industry in Brazil, and is part of an
international circuit of events that take place in the main global automotive
markets, and whose purpose is to promote the gathering of specialists, industry
professionals and researchers to debate several matters on the brake segment:
needs, legislation, research & innovation, future trends, etc.
In the 14th Colloquium, we
programmed a wide agenda of technical discussions with 2 panels which will
address new technologies and their impacts on brake system, with focus in
electrification and autonomous driving, and the impacts of ESC requirement in
Brazil. Additionally, we will have 15 technical presentations discussing topics
on Modeling and Simulations, Tests and Validation, Materials and Raw Materials,
Electronics in Brake Systems, Noise and Vibrations, and Braking Auxiliary
There is also the Test Drive, which will take
place in the Center of Technology Randon (CTR), where participants will have
the opportunity to be in contact with vehicles carrying very recent
technologies and innovations.
In the Engineering Display, 26 exhibitors from
Brazil and abroad will show what is mostly innovative and relevant on brakes
and friction materials. This lounge traditionally offers a proper ambient to
reinforce relationships and business partnerships, networking, products and
service promotion, besides the pleasant confraternization.
last, I reinforce my invitation to all of you to come and participate of this
event, hoping to see you in May in Farroupilha.
