The Smart Booster is a new vacuum booster, which allows - in addition to the today's standard function - remote controlled active braking without or in superposition to the driver. This active braking is proportionally controllable and allows a remote controlled comfort-braking which is especially required for ICC applications. The combination of the Smart Booster with a standard ABS hydraulic control unit leads to a new, modular designed brake system configuration which is unique in hardware, independent of the amount of function potential requested. This new functionality of the vacuum booster will be presented in this paper
