The electromechanical brake (EMB) is one of future brake systems due to its many advantages. For implementation of the EMB, the correct feed back about clamping force is necessary. Keeping commercialization of the EMB in mind, it is strongly demanded that an expensive load cell measuring the clamping force is replaced with an estimation algorithm. In addition, an estimation of the kissing point where the brake pads start to come into contact with a disk wheel is proposed in this paper. With these estimation algorithms, the clamping force can be expressed as a polynomial characteristic curve versus the motor angle. Also, a method for calibration of measured values by the load cell is proposed and used for an actual characteristic curve. Lastly, the performance of the proposed algorithms is evaluated in comparison with the actual curve on a developed EMB test bench.
