Is there a way, how to see during driving when exactly are hydraulic brakes active? E.g. by monitoring actual hydraulic pressures from braking ECU, using OBD plug and an app?
I’d like to know, when I am braking only by recuperation (no Energy waste) and when my braking is supported by friction between brake-pads and the brake-disc (creating heat Energy losses). Thx

When the power gauge needle swings over to full charge (green /left side on analog dash), the car is using friction.
I don’t think so. When I am braking in low speeds ( e.g. stopping at traffic lights from 30 to 0 km/h) I can hear sound from caliper friction , starting during very low speeds. In this moment power gauge needle is in green area, but close to 0 (almost vertical). Due to motor low rpm is only regen braking insuffitient and needs to be supported by friction too. This might be happening also in higher speeds during intensive braking.
