Brake balance systems in racecars are often adjusted remotely. The driver adjusts the bias between the front and rear brake systems from the cockpit depending on the ever-changing track and tyre conditions. Correct brake balance allows the driver to brake later and heavier into corners, which helps improve lap times. Rear brake lock-ups can cause the rear end to become loose and cause a potential spin. Position sensors are used in brake balance systems to monitor or control adjustments made by the driver during the race. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for brake balance systems.
