Ausweichen ohne ESP

In Deutschland könnten pro Jahr tausende Unfälle mit Verletzten und Getöteten deutlich weniger folgenschwer ausfallen, falls alle PKWs mit ESP - dem Elektronischen Stabilitätsprogramm - ausgestattet wären. Wie leicht man ohne ESP ins Schleudern kommt, zeigt dieses Video. Die Unfallforscher der Versicherer (UDV) fordert schon seit langem, alle Neuwagen serienmäßig mit ESP auszurüsten.

According to the UN, worldwide 1.3 million people die in traffic accidents each year and 50 million are injured. Within ten years, the number of annual road deaths could rise to 1.9 million -- nearly 50% rise. ESP® (electronic stability program) is the best active safety system a car can have. Global studies have proven that ESP® could prevent up to 80% of skidding accidents.

How electronic stability control (ESC) works
ESC is a vehicle control system comprised of sensors and a microcomputer that continuously monitors how well a vehicle responds to a driver's steering input and selectively applies the vehicle brakes and modulates engine power to keep the vehicle traveling along the path indicated by the steering wheel position. This technology helps prevent the sideways skidding and loss of control that can lead to rollovers. It can help drivers maintain control during emergency maneuvers when their vehicles otherwise might spin out. A driver loses control when the vehicle goes in a direction different from the one the steering wheel position indicates. This typically occurs when a driver tries to turn very hard or turn on a slippery road. Then the vehicle may understeer or oversteer. When it oversteers it turns more than the driver intended because the rear end is spinning or sliding out. When a vehicle understeers it turns less than the driver intended and continues in a forward direction because the front wheels have insufficient traction. ESC can prevent under- and oversteer by selectively braking wheels to produce a counteracting force which helps correct the vehicle's direction of travel. In some cases engine throttle also is reduced. More information at http://www.iihs.org/ratings/esc/esc.aspx





Driving Without Electronic Stability Control - Fifth Gear
When looking to purchase a second hand car, there are a few things you must be aware of. One key feature is cars not having ESC, (Electronic Stability Control) which only came into effect in 2012. We test the Toyota Yaris which doesn't have ESC, but in 2001 was awarded 4/5 Stars by Euro NCAP. All to find out what swerving at high speeds can cause.
