ESP 2018: BMW DSC regulates 50 times faster than before

Since the introduction of the first Electronic stability control (ESP), and brand specific systems such as BMW DSC called Dynamic Stability Control, many years have passed, in which the progress for millions of car drivers was noticeable. It is not only the electronically controlled protection against accidents due to uncontrolled driving maneuvers, but also to the control systems themselves do not become the DSC intervention is initially quite gruff, ESP systems in the last years by better-regulated procedures only sensitive, but also more effective.

The next big step on the way to electronic stability controls, the BMW DSC on Board the new BMW i3s. In comparison to the previous DSC-Generation of the control interventions is 50-times faster than before, causing an almost imperceptible, and at the same time, a particularly effective increase in traction and driving stability. Possible the significantly faster DSC-control, because the control is no longer calculated in a stand-alone control device, and triggered by, but directly in the drive control of the electric cars has been integrated.

The same logic will come in the future, also for models with a combustion engine and an even better DSC control enable: The impression is practically always a very torque-strong electric motors of the BMW i-developed DSC control system will be able to ensure in all models of BMW and MINI for maximum traction and driving stability – if it wants the driver. Of course, the finer adjustability of the systems is also suitable to track dynamic targets and, with the help of DSC for even more driving pleasure without compromising safety.

Peter Langen (head of the BMW chassis development): “With their high torques and their spontaneous reactions to every movement of the accelerator pedal, the electric motors already provide significantly higher demands on the driving stability control than conventional drives.”
