Toyota Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

Loading the player ...

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is one of five safety technologies of Toyota’s Star Safety SystemTM.

The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) helps prevent brakes from locking up by “pulsing” brake pressure to each wheel in order to help the driver maintain control in emergency-braking situations. Without ABS, emergency braking can cause brakes to lock up and cause a vehicle to skid. Toyota’s ABS sensors detect which wheels are locking up and prevent the lockup by “pulsing” the brakes at each wheel independently. Pulsing releases brake pressure repeatedly for fractions of a second – a reaction time not possible for humans. This keeps the wheels rotating and helps the driver to avoid going into a skid.
