What is ABS?

What is Anti-lock Braking System?

A system that protects our wheels from being the lock. In simple words when you push suddenly the brake pedal then your tire will stop working but your car will still slide and then you will lose the control of your car tires and in some cases, even you will not able to move your tires right and left.

still, confuse?

Let’s make it easy with Real life example 

Assume you have a big and heavy Box and you are pushing it, Initially, you have to put more force to move the box but once they get momentum then sliding friction will perform (sliding friction is fast than rolling friction). It means then you can easily transfer box from one place to another.

The same case with your car tires, if once they locked then your car will move with more speed because here rolling friction is off and sliding friction perform.

How ABS works?

In this system, we are using some smart sensors who find out the speed of our car tires and when they found that driver pushing brake and tires will be getting stuck then this system controls the brake and then they apply force to stop in the form of pulses. By this, our car does not stop suddenly rather it stops normally and our tires do not lock suddenly and you can control your car easily.
