Question about 2007 Mercedes-Benz S550 Sedan
Could it be, your vehicle has Psychic intuition? Just kidding... :-)
Well, actually...it's not far from it !!!
ESP was co-developed between Daimler-Benz & Bosch, and was later adopted by Mercedes (across their range) from 1999.
As you know, most vehicles now have ABS braking...and some now have a form of Traction control.
Well, ESP exceeds the safety boundaries:
It's an intuitive system, connected to your vehicle's ABS, steering, dampers and Drive-train management.
ESP has saved countless lives since its implementation by reducing the risk of skidding on cornering and by maintaining the vehicle’s directional stability – even in critical conditions.
How exactly does it work?
1) This is achieved by selectively braking individual wheels, thus counteracting the tendency to skid in critical handling situations and allowing the driver to maintain control of the vehicle.
2) Oversteer is corrected by applying brake to the front outer wheel, understeer by applying brake to the rear inner wheel. Engine power can also be limited in some applications
3) The system can measure steering angles, lateral forces, and can compensate the damper ride height (optional).
Hope this helps....
