Introduction to the topic
Note and from page 159.
The examples cited in this chapter should be
understood as general rules that are intended to help
the driver to drive safely off-road. However, it cannot
be assumed that they are applicable in all situations
that arise. Before making an incursion into unknown
terrain, it is crucial to find out about its characteristics. In
this way, potential hazards can be assessed in advance.
The driver is responsible for deciding if the terrain is
passable and suitable for the vehicle.
Intelligent vehicle technology cannot overcome the
limits imposed by physical laws and only works within
the limits of the corresponding systems. Under
unfavorable ground conditions, instability situations
may occur when the wheels lock even with ABS (eg,
in case of hard braking on loose gravel). Under these
conditions, the connected ESC can only stabilize the
vehicle to a limited extent.
Off-road driving requires different skills and behaviors
than driving on conventional roads.

serious injuries, vehicle damage, and vehicle
