Title: BRAKE CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention pertains to a brake control device which controls a drum-type electric parking brake that can generate, at vehicle wheels of a vehicle, a parking brake force separate from a hydraulic brake force generated by a hydraulic brake. The electric parking brake is provided with a clearance adjustment mechanism which adjusts the clearance, formed between a brake drum and a brake shoe during non-braking, in association with the generation of a parking brake force. This brake control device is provided with: an operation timing determining unit which determines an operation timing for the electric parking brake to adjust the clearance; an operation force determining unit which determines the clearance adjustment operation force that is applied by the electric parking brake to adjust the clearance; and a parking brake control unit which controls the electric parking brake with the determined clearance adjustment operation force, and thereby adjusts the clearance.
