It only helps the driver in emergency situations. There are different versions of this system like low speed, high speed and pedestrians and this varies from car to car and also in functionality.

This system helps the wheel spinning by temporarily applying the brake and holds the grip of the car during acceleration with the help of wheel rotation so that the car can accelerate smoothly on the road even when the road is slippery. It is more common safety feature in many cars today.
- Tier-pressure monitoring
