Viewed as control problems wheel-spin and wheel-slide are identical. Therefore a common electronic detection circuit can be used to trigger electrical and mechanical corrective devices such as air-brake dump valves. Rapid restoration of traction or braking torque as the wheel recovers can be achieved electronically by a flywheel circuit which anticipates slightly the return to full adhesion. A block diagram of the system is shown.
