Most passenger vehicles are coming out with, otherwise known as anti-lock brakes. Let's take a look at their design and function. ABS uses wheel-speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit, and a computerized electronic-control module, which is the "brain" of the system. When the brake pedal is applied, the electronic-control module monitors the speed of the wheels through the wheel-speed sensors. If the control module detects that one or more wheels are about to lock up, the module signals the hydraulic unit to control hydraulic pressure to that wheel(s). This varying of pressure is much like "pumping" the brake, but with the ABS system, the wheel that is locking up (causing a potential loss of control) is the only one being controlled. The rest of the wheels are free to roll. This maximizes vehicle steer-ability.
