Excessive wheelspin during acceleration is a waste of energy without any benefits. It increases the wear and tear of the drivetrain and tyres on the dry tarmac, while on the wet surface, it represents a great waste of fuel.
To prevent this, anti-slip regulation automatically modulates the wheelspin during acceleration. Its goal is to ensure that the driver has full control over the vehicle and provide efficient transfer of power to the road. This improves both handling and fuel economy.
Wheel speed sensors of the ABS systems monitor the driven wheels, while ECU compares their speed with the other axle. If the wheelspin is detected, the ECU lowers the speed of the slipping wheel, regaining its traction and enabling the vehicle to continue even on slippery surface.
