When the car is traveling usually the brakes are foot operation, it is also called the foot brake (Foot Brake). When the driver is stepping down the brake pedal, the brake force is transmitted to the wheels by mechanical or hydraulic braking device to produce friction.
The parking brake is also called the hand brake, to prevent the vehicle from sliding on the braking device when parked. Generally, there are two kinds of brake-type in the middle of the propeller shaft and direct control of the rear wheel brake.
When the car is running on a slippery or icy low-friction pavement, if the brakes occur, the wheels will be locked by the brakes and lose grip, causing the vehicle to lose control of the power. In order to make the vehicle in this dangerous road can effectively control the direction of progress, so the ABS "anti-lock braking system". More and more powerful abs "anti-lock braking system" the TCS-Traction control system can also be used to allow the "track-based controls" and VSC-Vehicle Stability Control "Vehicle Stabilization System" (equivalent to ESP) to control the track performance of vehicles while driving, and to control the stable performance of vehicles during cornering.
