ESC, or Electronic Stability Control, helps every driver to handle critical situations, when the car is getting into the skid.
The control unit constantly compares current data about the driving behaviour of the vehicle with the preset values. If the values do not match, the control unit gives command to stabilize the vehicle.
The stability program uses the abilities of ABS, ASR and few other special sensors. This allows it to prevent slipping or locking the wheels. The principle of its function is limiting the engine torque and braking the inner rear wheel in case of understeer, or outer front wheel in case of oversteer.
ESC provides significant help to the driver, but it still can’t overcome the laws of nature. The ESC can help the driver only if the limits of grip are not exceeded, at least on the wheels used to stabilize the vehicle.
