Traction Control Applications in Engine Control 2000-01-3464

Traction control is an electronic means of reducing the wheel spin caused by the application of excessive power for the valuable grip. Wheel spin can result in loss control of the car, reduce acceleration and cause tire wear. In the front wheel tire the loss grip is experienced as underwater, where the front of the car ‘pushes’ forward, not turning as much as the driver has exposed by turning the tearing. In the rear wheels slip causing oversteer, where the rear of the car swings around, turning much sharper than the driver anticipated. The result of all these problems is that the driver starts loosing control of the vehicle, which is undesirable. With the new design of the Traction Control System, the amount of the wheel slippage is precisely controlled. In racing, this means corner can be taken constantly quicker, with system applying the maximum power possible while the driver remains in total control.
