ABS: ABS is anti-lock braking system. There are 4 components of ABS namely sensor, valves, electronic control unit and hydraulic control unit. Anti-lock braking system prevents the car wheels from jamming and locking up, thus avoiding uncontrolled skidding of the car. While braking, if a wheel-locking situation is detected, the ECU alerts the HCU. Hydraulic control Unit (HCU)releases the brake pressure, allowing the wheel velocity to increase and the wheel slip to decrease. When car is in high speed and the sudden brake is applied, sometimes wheels get locked, skidding occurs which leads to an accident.


Electronic brake distribution (EBD): Electronic brake distribution is a sub system of ABS. While the vehicle in motion, different load will be on each tyre. Distributing brake force according to load is done by EBS. It prevents wheels from locking up and skidding.

ANCAP (Crash test Rating) : Dream car should be Crash test qualified. Australian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP) provides one to five-star rating. Buyer should go for five-star rating. How safe is your car? Can be found from ANCAP Rating.
