In enhanced temperature control in disc brakes, the problems regarding the heat generation in the disc brakes have been taken into account and their solutions are provided. The notification of the temperature raise of the disc brakes is made available to the driver when the temperature reaches above the safe value. In addition, the problem of heat generation is minimized by using the forced convection technique. It is concluded that the heat generated due to friction between the disc and the
