Abstract

In hazardous driving conditions, it is possible for the wheels of a vehicle to lock up under braking. The possible causes include wet or slippery road surfaces, and abrupt reaction on the part of the driver (unexpected hazard). The vehicle can become uncontrollable as a result, and may go into a slip and/or leave the road. The antilock braking system (ABS) detects if one or more wheels are about to lock up under braking and if so makes sure that the brake pressure remains constant or is reduced. By so doing, it prevents the wheels from locking up and the vehicle remains steerable. As a consequence the vehicle can be braked or stopped quickly and safely.
