Types of brakes: disc and drums.
There are two basic types of brakes: disc and drums. Most vehicles come with power assisted front disc and rear drum brakes and today, virtually all vehicles are factory equipped with computer controlled anti-lock braking systems (ABS). Computer-controlled ABS brakes are designed to allow you to maintain steering control preventing wheel lock-up during panic braking situations or braking on wet or icy surfaces.
ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) consists of a set of sensors for each wheel that notifies a computer when the wheel locks during extreme or emergency braking conditions. The computer releases the brake many times per second eliminating the need to pump the brake pedal allowing the driver to maintain steering control.
Using ABS brakes is simple, just press down on the brake pedal and continue steering your vehicle. You may also experience pulsating in your brake pedal or hear a humming noise that only indicates that the ABS working. If there is no pulsating or a humming noise your brakes may not be locking up, so the ABS is not needed.
