Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

How does it work?

Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are an important safety feature in modern vehicles that help prevent the wheels from locking when braking heavily, which allows the driver to maintain steering control on slippery roads. ABS is a widely installed active safety system in today’s passenger cars and commercial vehicles, with approximately 80-90% of vehicles on Europe’s roads equipped with this technology. Active safety technology can prevent accidents from occurring or help drivers reduce the impact of emergency situations. Active safety systems continuously monitor a vehicle’s performance and surroundings to provide drivers with more control in hazardous situations. These safety systems are designed to avoid or mitigate accidents before they happen or before contact is made, which is why they are known as pre-impact safety systems.
