Although I 'confidently' predicted 18 months ago that these would soon be available, EMB (electromechanical brakes) have hit a major snag.
The first electronic brake system, by Bosch, released in the Mercedes SL500, had to be recalled. Although not a true EMB system, it scared off other manufacturers.
A system was under development by Delphi; we don't know if Delphi will survive bankrupcy.
Continental Teves has a system under development, but I think they are keeping it under wraps until at least 2010.
And of course any system will need a 42V power system.
Kevin, your installation looks absolutely beautiful. Very nice workmanship. What hydraulic actuator are you going to use?
