NXP enables active and passive vehicle safety features such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) to help drivers maintain control for vehicles, motorcycles and scooters.
NXP microcontrollers and sensors help maintain the vehicle's intended trajectory. An integrated braking IC helps with safe stopping distance. Our safety 32-bit MCU enables individual control of brake forces at each wheel. NXP sensing solutions provide acceleration information, including fault and diagnostics. The power management supplies the system, combining different safety critical functions to help keep the driver on the road.
Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) reduce accidents and save lives. This is well-known and proven for 2-wheel as well as 4-wheel vehicles. Although not nearly as widely implemented as on 4-wheel vehicles, 2-wheeled motorcycles and scooters have increasing reasons for ABS implementation to be far more extensive in the future.
