"There may be no greater act of faith than when a driver hits the brake pedal" (Anonymous)
A Brakes System is the most critical safety device on any vehicle. They have to work every time!
Did you know that a braking system will be activated more than 1,000,000 times during the life of a typical vehicle? If the brakes were to fail at a rate of even .001%, a driver would experience a brake failure once a year, every year in the life of a vehicle.
It is critical that brakes are designed safely and with extreme reliability. They must be designed for the coldest night, the hottest day, for the top of the mountain or the fast lane on the expressway, for the 1st stop and the 1,000,000 stop!
The engineers at Maxg Technology have designed, tested and analyzed the brake systems that have been sold on millions of vehicles over the past 30 years. We make sure the components are sized properly and exceed all Federal Safety Standards. We are able to analyze and provide Expert opinion and testimony of the performance of a brake system at the vehicle level which is what the driver will experience, and at the component level to make sure the parts worked everytime or what might have happened if they didn't.
Being able to predict stopping distance is critical for vehicle safety
All Brakes are not the same or behave in a predictable way
At Maxg Technology, we take the "g" seriously! g is the engineering symbol for deceleration. Deceleration is how fast you stop!
