Guardian Angels for the Car
Electronic driving safety systems are designed to prevent accidents or minimize damage. With ABS, TCS and ESP®, Bosch is amongst the pioneers in the field of active driving safety. Originally conceived as special equipment for luxury cars, electronic driving safety systems have since become standard for many new vehicles – even in the compact class. Safety made by Bosch.
ABS anti-lock braking system: Braking and steering
In critical driving situations, e.g. on a wet or slippery road, or if the driver is startled or shocked, the wheels can become locked when braking. This makes it impossible to steer the vehicle. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) detects incipient locking of one or more wheels at an early stage and selectively reduces the braking pressure. This ensures that the driver can avoid obstructions even with full braking and can brake the vehicle and bring it to a stop safely and quickly.
