What is ESC on a car

ESC was one of the first and most effective safety systems in the automobile industries. It helps drivers to avoid crashes by reducing the danger of skidding or losing control as a result of over-steering. 

Let you know first the full form of ESC.

What does ESC do?

With the use of ESC wheel sensor can detect the beginning of a slide and a small amount of braking can be applied automatically to individual wheels to regain stability.

The risk of an accident is considerably lower with the use of ESC.
ESC also reduce crashes involving skidding or overturning by up to 59%.
ESC can help in adverse road conditions such as wet or snowy weather.
It also helps stabilise the car during sudden evasive manoeuvres.

How does ESC work?

Not all the ESC system works for the same. The hardware is similar, but there is variation in how ESC systems are programmed to respond once a loss of control is detected.

There is a number of sensors are used that detect any loss of control and automatically apply the brake to the relevant wheel, putting your vehicle on to the intended path again.

The degree of effectiveness of ESC is mainly dependent upon the amount of traction between the road and the car. If a car with old, worn or inappropriate tyres, in that case, ESC will be less effective than on a car with new tyres.

Control happens so quickly that drivers do not perceive the need for steering corrections.
