Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows the wheels on automobiles to continue tractive contact with the road surface as directed by driver steering inputs while braking, preventing the wheels from ceasing rotation and therefore avoiding skidding.
- Anti-lock braking system (ABS) guarantees stable braking characteristics on all road surfaces, hence avoids overturning of the vehicle.
- ABS reduces friction on wheels and road, thus increases the efficiency of tires (up to 30%).
- The Vehicle with ABS can be stopped at a lesser distance than a non ABS vehicle.
- Steering control is effective, i.e., the vehicle can be steered smoothly while braking. Thus minimizes the accidents.
- A driver without experience can drive ABS vehicle effectively, then an experienced driver on the non ABS vehicle.
- Initial cost for Anti-lock braking system (ABS) vehicle is high.
- Maintenance issues arise as the whole braking system is controlled by engine control unit.
- On concrete roads, the ABS vehicle stopping distance might be needed more.
