Bosch launched the first ABS anti-lock braking system onto the market in 1978. Now, all newly-certified cars in Europe are equipped with an anti-lock braking system. In addition, many of today's vehicles also feature an ESP® anti-skid system. Important components in these electronic safety systems include sensors, such as the wheel speed sensors that record the rotary speed of the wheels.
Defective wheel speed sensors can today be exchanged simply, quickly and safely by any workshop. To complement the wide range of first-class sensors, Bosch also offers the necessary diagnostics systems and detailed step-by-step instructions for exchange.
Nowadays, Bosch produces more than 250 million sensors a year worldwide for a diverse range of tasks in the vehicle. Around a third of all wheel speed sensors used in new vehicles are manufactured by Bosch.
