A comprehensive guide to Electronic Stability Control (ESC): All you need to know

Electronic Stability Control or ESC: Everything you need to know about it

Modern vehicles are equipped with various safety features, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which helps drivers maintain control in critical situations. ESC uses automatic braking to keep the vehicle on course, preventing loss of control due to slipping wheels.

ESC, also known as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) or Electronic Stability Program (ESP), assists drivers during hard turns or steep manoeuvres by adjusting the brakes and engine throttle. This technology doesn’t prevent rollovers but helps keep the vehicle stable by ensuring the tires stay on the road.

The ESC system activates when the vehicle’s ignition is turned on and works in the background by monitoring steering wheel activity and wheel speed sensors. If a loss of control is detected, ESC automatically adjusts oversteer and understeer, applying brakes to individual wheels to bring the vehicle back on track.

Advantages of ESC include preventing vehicle skidding in slippery conditions, providing support in tricky driving situations, enhancing safety, comfort, and agility, and helping drivers maintain control of their vehicles. This technology significantly reduces the risk of rollovers and improves overall driving safety.
