The anti-lock braking system, popularly known as ABS system, is a safety system which prevents the wheels on the vehicle locking up in a sudden braking condition due to panic, or if you are driving on a slick and slippery surface. It is a safety anti-skid braking system used in cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses. ABS operates by preventing the wheels from locking during braking, thereby maintaining tractive contact with the road surface.
Started as one of the safety advancement in the automotive world, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) has come a long way from being an option to a near necessity. The theory behind the ABS brake is simple. A skidding wheel has less traction than a nonskidding wheel. ABS brakes provide two ways of benefit, stopping is faster and you will be able to steer while stopping.
HOW ABS Brakes Works
There are four main components to an ABS system; the speed sensors, the pump, the valves and the controller. Sensors for sensing the speed are located in each wheel or in the differential, they provide information that the wheel is about to lock up. The valves are located in each line at the brakes and they pass thru, stop the release of brake fluid from the master cylinder to activate the ABS system. The controller is the computer in the car. It watches the speed sensors and the control valves.
When the driver applies the brake, wheel speed sensors determine if one or more wheels are trying to lock up during the braking. If a wheel tries to lock up, a series of hydraulic valves limit or reduce the braking on that wheel. This prevents skidding and allows the driver to maintain steering control. ABS allows the driver to brake and steer at the same time and increases vehicles safety. This is quite different from the traditional brake system. If you ever encounter any problem with brake you can get brake repair service in Auckland from Sterling Clutch and brake Auckland.

- Anti-lock braking system (ABS) provides a guarantee of stable braking on all road surfaces, especially on wet and slippery surfaces, hence avoids overturning of the vehicle.
- ABS helps in reduction of wheels friction on the road, thus increasing the efficiency of tires up to 30%
- ABS fitted vehicles can be stopped at a lesser distance than a non-ABS vehicle.
- With ABS steering control is very effective, i.e., the vehicle can be steered smoothly when the brake is applied, thus the chance of an accident is minimized.
- A driver without experience can drive ABS vehicle effectively, then an experienced driver on the non-ABS vehicle.
- The value of ABS technology fitted vehicles for resale is more. Since the ABS is standard issue on today’s vehicle, in resale ABS vehicle fetch more value than non-ABS vehicles.
- ABS fitted vehicles are less involved in the accident, so their insurance costs are reduced over the period.
The advantages of ABS are significant and outweigh any drawbacks.
