Explaining Electronic Stability Control.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC), also known as Electronic Stability Program (ESP) or Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), is an advanced safety feature in modern vehicles that helps to improve the stability and control of the vehicle during challenging driving conditions or emergency maneuvers.
ESC uses a combination of sensors, control modules, and braking systems to continuously monitor the vehicle's behavior and driver inputs. It primarily works by comparing the driver's intended direction (based on steering wheel position) with the actual direction the vehicle is moving (based on sensors measuring factors like yaw rate, lateral acceleration, wheel speed, etc.).
If the system detects a discrepancy between the driver's input and the vehicle's behavior, indicating a potential loss of control or skidding, ESC activates and intervenes to help maintain stability. It does this by selectively applying braking to individual wheels and, in some cases, adjusting engine power to assist in regaining control.
