VEHICLE ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS

ABS

Most cars on the road today have some form of Antilock Brake System (ABS). Modern ABS systems electronically monitor the speed of the wheels and regulate the hydraulic pressure accordingly. The aim is to maximize braking power while preventing the wheels from locking and skidding.

Brake pressure is automatically modulated during an emergency stop, preventing wheel lock-up. By preventing the wheels from locking, it enables the driver to maintain steering control and to stop in the shortest possible distance under most conditions.

SRS (AIR BAG)

Airbags, one of the most important recent inventions in vehicle safety, will inflate milliseconds after a serious crash begins and provide a safety cushion between a person and the hard interior of a car. Most common are frontal airbags located in the steering wheel(driver) and the dash panel on the left for the passenger. These airbags will inflate in the event of a head on crash and prevent injury.

Recent developments include side airbags and even roof airbags.
Tests in America on vehicles with side airbags show that many of the nearly 10,000 occupants killed each year in side-impact collisions could be saved if side airbags were fitted to the vehicles.

ETC (ELECTRONIC TRACTION CONTROL)

Traction control deals specifically with lateral (front-to-back) loss of friction during acceleration.

When the traction control system senses that the wheels have begun to slip, this data is fed back to the control unit, which adjusts throttle input and applies braking force to slow the wheels. The wheels are thus prevented from spinning and the car maintains maximum traction.

Think of it as ABS in reverse.
