Guys tell me the difference between Brake Assist,ABS,Traction Control,EBD,EBS
Assisted Brakes - You don't need to stand on the brake pedal to stop the Car, hydraulic & Booster provides additional pressure.
( Almost all new Cars have this)
EBD - Integrated with ABS system to distribute braking force to wheels depending on road conditions.
ABS - Prevents wheels from locking under hard braking offering more control and shorter braking distance.
(standard on mid-high end Cars, optional on low end Cars)
Traction Control - Helpful in slippery conditions by preventing wheel slip.
(usually available on high end or off road vehicles)
EBS - not sure but i guess its a secondary braking system using electromagnetism, Kinetic energy is converted into electric energy and used to charge the battery.
EBS is used in large eighteen wheelers or trucks since assisted brakes require a reservoir at a designated interval, although pnuematic systems were and are still in use, isolating failure in a pneumatic pressure system is troublesome aspect(it can take days to isolate a leak in the pressure lines), since abs and ebd are becoming increasingly popular, it makes more sense to integrate them with electrically actuated braking systems...
to add a lil more detail to Dhillon's Description
EBD: ensure that maximum braking force is applied without any particular wheel breaking traction.
ABS:comes under play under severe braking condition and is electronically controlled
Traction control:comes under play when accelerating, if the wheel speed sensor detects slipping of a particular wheel it applies brakes to that particular wheel to prevent loss of traction(you won't like this if you want to have fun )
