Traction Control Systems in Vehicles



Traction Control Systems

Many newer vehicles are equipped with attraction control system (TCS), also known as Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). Typically this is an electro-hydraulic system. The system applies and releases the hydraulic brakes at each driven wheel to prevent loss of traction. When the throttle is applied and one of the wheel looses traction, the brake on that wheel is activated. This stops the wheel spin and transfers more torque to the wheel or wheels that have better traction. These systems help you maintain the control of the vehicle when accelerating hard or on slippery surfaces.
