    ESP®: A System Which Can Save Lives

    Longitudinal and lateral forces act on every car when driving. The driver can stably drive the car for as long as the shear force reserves on the tires are sufficient. If these do not reach a certain level, however, then stable handling is no longer guaranteed. ESP® prevents skidding right from the onset and therefore counteracts one of the main causes for serious and fatal accidents.

    The ESP® Components Are:

    • Hydraulic modulator with add-on control unit
    • Wheel speed sensor
    • Steering angle sensor
    • Yaw rate and lateral acceleration sensor
     
     
  • ESP for Parking Obstructions

    Systems such as traction control (TCS) and the electronic stability program (ESP) which followed on from the ABS have just as successfully established themselves on the market. ESP enables drivers to brake more safely as the system prevents the wheels from locking. The car still responds to the driver’s steering input even under heavy braking or with a slippery road surface. The vehicle remains stable and the driver can avoid obstructions.
