ABSTRACT

A technology known as "x-by-wire", also called drive by wire or simply "by-


wire". A car with this type of system mainly on electronics , to control a wide range of
vehicle operations, including braking, acceleration, and steering. Conventional cars
mainly use hydraulic and mechanical technology to conduct these basic vehicle
operations, and although the systems are powerful, they can be overly complex,
inefficient and conducive to wear and tear over the years
The idea of X-by-wire, the control of a cars vital functions like steering and
breaks by electrical rather than mechanical links, it tantalizing to some and terrifying
to other. Aircraft may have been equipped with Fly-by-wire system for years

At first sound alarming actually has many benefits and whatever we as


costumers may think, X-by-wire is already emerging fast. Electronic throttles, the
Mercedes sensotronic break controls (SBC) and now BMWs active front steering
(ABS) in the new launches are all examples of drive-by-wire technologies.

Mercedes-Benzs cutting edge sensotronic break control technology, used in


new SL, delivers more breaking movement in an emergency and helps stabilize skid
early.
Delphis X-by wire is a family of advanced breaking, steering, throttle and
suspension control system which function without conventional mechanical
component.
