For vehicles, it also is important that the rear wheels do not lock during braking. This is achieved, when necessary, by a brake pressure reducer or with the ABS. State-of-the-art for the ABS is the three-channel system. 24 shows the schematic function. Via electromagnetic valves, the brake pressure is controlled at the single wheel to avoid the locking of one of the specific wheels.

With the SBC (EHB) system, several additional functions are possible. 26 Optimized brake function by SBC. ) Accident Avoidance brake assistant increases the brake line pressure until the antilock braking controller reacts. Also, a pre-filling of the brake lines is possible in the case where the acceleration pedal is relieved with a jerking motion in anticipation of the need for braking. Even as the rain sensor senses the start of a rainfall, the braking system with unnoticeable brake impulses can remove a water or salt coating from the tires.
