What is the full form of ABS?

The full form of ABS is the Anti-lock Braking System. It is a modern safety braking system to stop the vehicle with more control. Just like the name indicates, ABS avoids tyre locking when applying sudden brakes.

ABS          : Anti-lock Braking System

Imagine what will happen if we apply sudden brakes, of course, the tyre will skid and we may lose control of the vehicle. In some cases, it will lead to accidents especially in two-wheelers. If the vehicle is moving at high-speed even experienced drivers can't stop the vehicle without ABS. ABS has 4 major components,

1. Sensors: Sensors are used to monitor the speed of each wheel

2. Valves: valves are used to control the pressure according to the pressing of brake pedal 

3. ECU (Electronic control unit) : ECU is the brain of ABS, ECU receive signals from the sensor and give instructions to the HCU

4. HCU (Hydraulic control unit) : It consists of pump valves etc, HCU work according to the instructions given by ECU.

Frequently asked questions

What does ABS stand for?
Ans: anti-lock braking system

Briefly explain working of ABS?
And: ECU will always monitor the speed of all the wheels using sensors. Whenever the values exceed the fixed threshold it will signal the HCU unit and HCU make the desired changes in pressure.
