Does Your CAR own ABS system

What is ABS ?

ABS means Anti-lock Braking System. It was invented to help the driver maintain some steering control and avoid vehicle skidding while braking.

Who invented ABS ?

The ABS was invented by Gabriel Voisin in 1929.The German firm Bosch had been developing anti-lock braking technology since the 1930s, but the first  car using Bosch’s electronic system became available in 1978. They first appeared in trucks and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. ABS Systems were later introduced on motorcycles.

How  ABS Works ?

ABS technology uses sensors to measure speed of each wheel to determine if one or more wheels are trying to lock up during braking. If a wheel tries to lock up, a series of hydraulic valves limit or reduce the braking on that wheel. This prevents skidding and allows you to maintain steering control thus preventing the vehicle to loose direction.

Why ABS is important for safe driving ?

When you require to stop the car in emergency situation ,With ABS brakes the braking distance for a car to come to a full stop is much shorter than if there where no ABS brakes.

When you brake hard a car without ABS Brakes the tyres skid and the area of the tyre in contact with the road gets worn out. Frequent use of hard braking on Indian roads lead to the tyre getting worn out in different areas on the tyre and this leads to the tyre getting out of balance and causing vibrations;Hence ABS system increases life of your car tyre.

Also the ABS system prevents the car from turning into multiple directions on application of  immediate brakes.It makes the car stable on application of immediate brakes.

Recently i visited to a multibrand workshop who has large space and has authorization from Castrol and Bosch. Castrol India is establishing network of pit stops to add value to car owners with “preventive maintenance” products. Bosch India is a leading supplier of technology and add values to customer with “spare parts” and train mechanics for the technology.

Multi-brand service centres have a significant presence in developed economies, but you can see recent trends in India. It has been noticed that car owners look for alternative after the warranty period. Even the spare parts cost remains the same, but labour cost cheaper than OEM service centres.
