How ESP Works in Cars

ESP, which stands for Electronic Stability Control, serves to correct the movement of cars by enabling their drivers to apply the brakes to each wheel as required by detecting any maneuvers that are not natural when they make sharp turns. ESP triggers microcomputer monitors by using its checks and sensors every 25 seconds whether or not the actual direction in which the car is heading is the same as that of the driver’s steering input since it is active all the time.

This control, which enables drivers to avoid accidents when they skid, works independently of them by reacting promptly when it detects a critical situation especially if a car does not move in the direction in which it is supposed to. Although drivers do not skid when they do not exceed their physical limits since they are able to retain the control of their cars, they still need ESP because it has the ability to intervene as quickly as possible when it recognizes imminent skidding.

It serves to prevent up to 80 percent of the accidents that occur because of skidding by generating the necessary counteracting force by intervening selectively by using its braking systems. ESP, which enables cars to stay safe on their tracks, also has the ability to accelerate the wheels that are driven by intervening on the engines of the respective cars.
