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. Difference in slip may occur due to turning of a vehicle or differently varying road conditions for different wheels. 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 when the gyro forces and, even more important, the stabilizing forces at the front wheel diminish. We aim to present an algorithm for implementing TCS (Traction Control System) and its hardware implementation on low-cost real-time system. The systems must be capable of detecting any slip occurring and must be able to cut off a portion of the spark to reduce the torque supplied to the wheel and regain grip thus reducing slippage.
