The pedal-travel sensor (PWG) is Bosch’s sensor series for contactless pedal-travel measurement. Travel sensors are a core component of electric brake pedals, which are required for regenerative braking systems in hybrid and electric vehicles. These pedals record the driver's desired level of braking, which the systems then implements electrically, hydraulically, or using a combination of the two.
The pedal-travel sensor meets the requirements of today’s advanced braking systems. It is designed for systems that require a pedal-travel signal in order to correctly interpret the driver’s brake request.
Due to its standardized and compact housing, the pedal-travel sensor can be easily integrated into various braking systems.
