Abstract

Critical driving situations can occur not only while braking, but also whenever strong longitudinal forces should be transferred at the contact area between the tire and the ground. This is because the transferable lateral forces are reduced by this process. Critical situations can also occur when starting off and accelerating, particularly on a slippery road surface, on hills, and when cornering. These kinds of situations can overtax the driver not only causing him/her to react incorrectly but also causing the vehicle to become unstable. The traction control system (TCS) solves these problems, providing the vehicle remains within the physical limits.
