A Traction Control System (TCS) is an active feedback based system whose purpose is to prevent wheels of a vehicle from losing traction which results in improved safety and performance The basic idea behind the need of a traction control system is the difference between traction of different wheels evidencing apparent loss of road grip that compromise steering control and stability of vehicles. Compared with cars, the most critical vehicle factor for a motorcycle is the fact that it uses only one-track instead of two. So tilting of the motorcycle has to be avoided by steering which leads to the seriousness of wheel locking while braking. We aim to present an algorithm for implementing TCS and its hardware implementation on low-cost real-time system. The system is capable of detecting any slip occurring and is able to cut off a portion of the spark to reduce the torque supplied to the wheel and regain grip thus reducing slippage.
