The MB Sensotronic braking system, which recently caused a large-scale recall of E and SL-class cars, is going the way of the gentle dodo bird. Mercedes claims no redeveopment is being undertaken, and that improved systems are in the works. The Bosch-created technology used a "brake-by-wire" arrangement, meaning that there was no direct mechanical link between brake pedal and brake pads. Instead it relied on computer signals. And we all know what happens when we rely on computers, right? Right?
