DETROIT ZEROS IN ON SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY

Ford's anti-lock brake system is considered which is available on special Lincoln Mark VII and Continental models. The system features four wheel mounted speed sensors which send signals to a central microprocessor. The microprocessor compares the rotational speeds of all four sensors. If one wheel starts to slow down more rapidly than the others during braking, indicating potential wheel lock, the computer signals the appropriate hydraulic braking circuit to pulse the braking pressure to that wheel or axle.
