One box brake system

The one box brake system MK C2 is Continental’s second-generation brake-by-wire system.

MK C2 is Continental's second-generation brake-by-wire system and has been in series production since 2022. The system integrates the master cylinder (MC), brake booster and control systems (ESC and normal braking) into a single compact and lightweight module. MK C2 is built upon Multilogic Architecture, which increases the functionality and availability of the system. Additionally, MK C2 builds upon the history and experience from the innovative MK C1, and once again makes a major contribution to safe and dynamic driving, as well as energy efficiency.

MK C2 makes a major contribution to safe, dynamic and environmental conscious driving with 100% efficient regenerative braking. By combining the system with an Hydraulic Brake Extension (HBE), MK C2 has a redundant fallback-level for highly automated driving. It also comes with up-to-date cyber security features and OTA functionality that can be easily installed in the vehicle.

In terms of benefits to the driver, the system offers significantly quicker buildup of autonomous braking pressure than conventional hydraulic systems, resulting in swift response when braking.

Benefits & Features
