TRW Inc. begins a high-volume, low cost Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) initiative that it hopes will make its ABS/traction control stability system more accessible to all consumers.

“Why should only high-end consumers have this important safety feature?” asks Phil Cunningham, TRW product business director- brake control. “In the future, we expect fitment rates to be at the same level as ABS is today.”

Currently available on high-end customer vehicle platforms only, TRW will work to make the VSC systems within reach of all consumers and vehicle segments.

TRW predicts that significant volume increases in the production of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) systems will drive down costs in the coming years.
