Mercedes-Benz presented the first functioning electronically controlled ABS to the world in Untertürkheim. It was still based on analogue electronics. The applause was enthusiastic, the response extremely positive. But then there was the opportunity to make the system even better. Digital electronics had arrived on the scene in the meantime. Integrated circuits made better control units with even shorter response times and overall more reliable functioning possible. Mercedes-Benz decided to make the switch in order to offer maximum safety. The time finally arrived in 1978: the world’s first reliably operating ABS based on digital electronics made its debut in the S-Class. The perseverance to get from the initial idea to the finished product paid off. A dream came true.
