Well, there are mainly two types of existing braking systems, the drum brake and the disk brake. lets have a look at both their histories and usage. Firstly the drum brake was invented in 1902 by Louis Renault. They were extensively used by most car manufacturers until 1953, when the first disk brakes on a car were fitted on the Jaguar C-Type. Although the disk brake was in invented 12 years before the drum brake, it was not able to be put into vehicles because it was too unreliable, big and heavy, not to mention expensive. We still have both alternatives today, even though the disk brakes are far superior. The drum brakes are ideal for small and light cars because it does not need as much braking force to stop it and it is far cheaper than disk brakes.
