ABS is an automated system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking, techniques which were once practiced by skillful drivers before ABSes were widespread.ABS operates at a much faster rate and more effectively than most drivers could manage.

Nowadays an anti lock braking system is used in almost all modern vehicles. This system prevents accidents like this, where you lose control of the steering as you apply the brakes. With ABS you will be able to steer the vehicle properly and it also reduces the braking distance. What is ABS? How is it able to prevent accidents due to the braking? We will explore these questions in this video./Learn Engineering
The Anti-lock Braking System-ABS uses electronics to detect and prevent wheel lock up. This helps a driver maintain control of a vehicle when braking in low grip situations, because a car’s steering will still work when ABS is engaged.
The technology behind Anti-lock Braking System: Wheel sensors detect when your car’s tires begin locking up. Then, they rapidly apply and release (pulse) the brakes to automatically keep your tires from skidding.When you feel or hear the ABS vibrating, continue to firmly press and hold the brake – then steer to safety.
