An (ABS) anti-lock braking system is a safety anti-skid braking system used on all major Truck, Car, Pickup brands sold in the American market 

ABS works by keeping the wheels from securing during slowing down, subsequently keeping in touch with the street surface and permitting the driver to keep up with more command over the vehicle

ABS is a mechanised framework that utilises the standards of limit slowing down and cadence braking, methods which were once rehearsed by talented drivers before ABS was boundless. ABS works at a much quicker rate and more than most drivers could make due. In spite of the fact that ABS by and large offers further developed vehicle control and diminishes halting distances on dry and a few dangerous surfaces, on free rock or snow-covered surfaces ABS may essentially increase braking distance,

Major milestones in the Introduction of ABS/electronic brake force distribution/traction control system/emergency brake assist or electronic stability control (ESC) system by Car brands

  • Mario Palazzetti invented the modern ABS System in the Fiat Research Centre and is presently standard in each vehicle. The framework was known as Antiskid and the patent was offered to Bosch, who named it ABS
  • Chrysler, along with the Bendix Corporation,  for its 1971 Imperial presented a modernised, three-channel, four-sensor all-wheel ABS called “Sure Brake” 
  • In 1969 1/2, Ford presented a stopping automation called “Sure-Track” to the back tires of the Lincoln Continental Mark III and Ford Thunderbird, as a choice; it became standard in 1971
  • In 1971, General Motors presented the “Trackmaster” back tire just ABS as a choice on their back tire drive Cadillac models and the Oldsmobile Toronado
  • Nissan offered an (Electro Anti-lock System) build up by Denso which is a Japanese company which became Japan’s first electronic ABS
  • Imperial became the 1st manufacture vehicle with a 4-wheel computer-operated anti-lock braking system in 1971
  • In 1971 Toyota introduced the Toyota Crown electronically controlled anti-skid brakes .
  • Triumph 2500 Estates in 1972, four-wheel-drive were fitted with Mullard electronic systems as standard. Such vehicles were extremely rare anyway, and not very many endure today.
  • A four-wheel electronic “Anti-Skid Control” system was manufactured on the Toyota Crown in 1983
  • Honda introduced electronically controlled multi-channel ALB (Anti-Locking Brakes) as an option for the second generation of Prelude, launched worldwide in 1982
  • Starting around 1987 ABS has been standard hardware on all Mercedes-Benz, Lincoln took action accordingly in 1993
  • In 1987, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and BMW presented their first grip control systems. Foothold control works by applying individual wheel slowing down and choke to keep up with traction under speed increase, however not at all like ESC, it isn’t intended to support guiding.
  • In 1990, Mitsubishi delivered the Diamante. It included another electronically controlled dynamic follow and footing control framework. Named with TCL when it previously entered the market, the system advanced into Mitsubishi’s cutting edge Active Skid and Traction Control (ASTC) system
  • BMW, working with Continental and Bosch developed a system to reduce engine torque to avoid loss of control and applied it to most of the BMW model line for 1992, excluding the E30 and E36. This system could be assigned with the winter package, which came with a limited-slip differential,heated mirrors and heated seats. Bosch and Mercedes-Benz co-developed a system from 1987 to 1992 called Elektronisches Stabilitätsprogramm  to control sidelong slippage.
  • In 1997, Audi introduced the first series production ESP for all-wheel drive vehicles (Audi A8 and Audi A6 with quattro)
  • Volvo Cars offered their version of ESC known as (DSTC) Dynamic Stability and Traction Control on the new Volvo in 1988.
  • Cadillac presented a coordinated vehicle taking care of and programming control framework called the (ICCS) Integrated Chassis Control System on the Cadillac It includes an omnibus PC joining of engine, StabiliTrak electronic solidness control, traction control, directing, and versatile continuously variable road sensing suspension (CVRSS), with the plan of further developing responsiveness to driver info, execution, and generally security, like Lexus/Toyota Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management.
  • General Motors worked with Delphi Automotive and introduced its version of ESC, called “StabiliTrak”, in 1996 for the 1997 model year on select Cadillac StabiliTrak was made standard equipment on all SUVs and vans sold in the U.S. also, Canada by 2007, except for specific business and armada vehicles. While the StabiliTrak name is utilised on most General Motors vehicles for the U.S. market, “Electronic Stability Control” is utilised for GM’s abroad brands, like Opel,  Saab and Holden besides in the instances of Saab’s 9-7X and 9-4X.
  • Ford’s version of ESC, known as AdvanceTrac, was sent off in the year 2000. Later Ford added Roll Stability Control to AdvanceTrac which was first presented in the Volvo XC90 in 2003. It has been executed in many Ford vehicles since.

The different type of ABS systems is listed below

  • Four-channel, four-sensor ABS
  • Three-channel, four-sensor ABS
  • Three-channel, three-sensor ABS
  • Two-channel, four-sensor ABS
  • One-channel, one-sensor ABS
