This paper presents the design of a model-based supervision system for the vacuum brake booster of current hydraulic passenger car braking systems. A model is derived, which allows to calculate the pressure in the vacuum chamber and the working chamber of the vacuum brake booster. Based on this model, a real-time supervision system has been implemented. The fidelity of the model has been evaluated by testing the model against experimental data from a braking system testbed. The functioning of the model-based supervision system has also been probed with measurements taken at the aforementioned testbed.
