Although car manufacturers are busy with the development of electric drive technology and autonomous driving, and with increasingly stringent environmental standards, they still have time and resources for some unusual newspapers.
Thus, these days, German Volkswagen has surprised the company by testing brake dust filters.
It is designed for drivers who look at the price and function of the brakes and look at how much dust they produce during braking.
This dust covers not only the wheels but also the body of the car, which hinders its aesthetics.
However, the main reason for introducing this filter is a new way to reduce environmental pollution, as according to recent studies in Germany, only 10,000 tonnes of such dust are produced each year.
In addition, they also affect human health, as smaller particles can penetrate the lungs, causing respiratory and cardiovascular disease.
The Volkswagen was tested by testing this filter on the new Golf GTD generation prototype because there are foreign parts in the brake caliper area.
The first prototype of this filter was introduced in 2018 and can contain about 80% of dust particles.
As it is only 500 grams, this filter, mounted on the top of the brake discs, does not affect the weight of the vehicle and its performance.
