Skidding Prevention Device(Stability control system)

The operation and effects of the product

When turning sharply to avoid an obstacle or when driving on a surface that is unexpectedly slippery, the motion of the vehicle often becomes unstable, for example skidding sideways. This system has an apparatus which controls the motion of the vehicle in such cases to make it more stable. If the vehicle begins to skid sideways, this is detected by a sensor and the brakes at each wheel are suitably controlled so that the vehicle does not spin out or make a wide turn.
