The increasing complexity on the road posits great challenges to drivers and their vehicles. Driver assistance systems provide relief and optimize road safety.
HELLA speed sensor are an important component of those assistance systems, like ABS and ESR, for they continuously detect wheel circumference speeds and forward these data to the control electronics. They thus significantly contribute to driving dynamics, safety and comfort - but also to fuel savings and reduced emissions.
Wheel speed sensors, known as ABS sensors for short, ensure greater road safety because the sensor serves as a source of information and forwards data to safety systems. For example, to the anti-lock braking system or the electronic stability programs. In addition, the ABS sensor can support other systems such as driving dynamics or hill start aids. This makes it an indispensable communication talent in vehicles. HELLA's wheel speed sensors are now also available for commercial vehicles. You can find more information about the ABS sensors and how they work in our new product video.
