Why do Buses/Trucks have both Airbrakes(powerful brakes)and antibrake system?

One can understand heavy-duty brakes for big vehicles like interstate buses or trucks,but what is the function of Anti-Brake system?


Airbrakes are also pneumatic brakes that work on air pressure to give the neccesary force to press the brake pads onto the discs. They work similar to hydraulic brakes but here they use air instead of oil. ABS is anti-lock braking system. It prevents the brake discs from closing the brake discs completely, which could result in the locking of tires - that is, getting stuck at one place.

That would be anti-lock brakes. If you lock up the brakes you cannot steer the vehicle. Just like on ice, never lock up the brakes. They will help you stab brake. That is braking hard, releasing, and braking hard etc, While controlling the vehicle until you stop.

air brakes are the strongest brakes for heavy vehicles and they have added antilock control to them on all busses trucks and semi trailers to prevent skidding and help the driver maintain control when stopping on a slippery or wet road. the abs system on heavy trucks and buses has the same funtion as on cars to keep the vehicle in a straightline during a emergency stop

hamsters are more active during the night, maybe you are sleeping when your hamster wants to exercise .
