The electronic stability program (ESP) is a closed-loop system designed to improve driveability through programmed intervention in the brake system and/or drivetrain. The integrated functionality of ABS1) prevents the wheels from locking when the brakes are applied, while TCS2) inhibits wheel spin during acceleration. The overall role of ESP is to prevent the vehicle’s tendency to “plow” or become unstable and break away to the side, provided the vehicle remains within its physical limits.
