The brakes subsystem interfaces are defined in this sub-package of the VehicleInterfaces library. The brakes subsystem has the following connectors some of which are optional (see below for more information):

The optional connectors are, by default, disabled and can be ignored if not required. They can be enabled by setting the appropriate parameter to be true. This is only possible at design time, i.e. when you are building the subsystem model.

Effects to be modelled in this subsystem

Within the VehicleIntefaces package the brakes subsystem is used to model the entire braking system from the brake pedal position through to the torque applied at the wheel hubs to decelerate the vehicle and the reactions in to the wheel carrier. Different interface definitions are provided for vehicles with different numbers of wheels, a FlangeWithBearing connector is added for each wheel.
