The goal of all anti-lock brake systems is to ensure that the driver has the opportunity of retaining control over the vehicle under emergency braking conditions by maximizing the available tire-to-road adhesion when trying to avoid a potential accident situation. Under such braking conditions, a vehicle fitted with an anti-lock braking system can retain directional stability even on slippery road surfaces, particularly where differing road surfaces create the rapidly changing levels of tire-to-road adhesion. This article describes three such anti-lock brake systems: the Bosch Antiskid System, the Teves Anti-Lock MK II system, and Lucas Girling's Stop Control System.
