What is the Kantanka Anti-Lock Braking System all about and why do you need it?

The Kantanka Anti-lock Braking system (KABS) is an advance, safe and effective braking system which offers an important safety advantage over other vehicles without KABS by preventing the wheels from locking during emergency braking situations.

Thus it enables the driver to maintain control over steering and operate the vehicle more effectively. This automobile safety system  allows the wheels on the Kantanka automobile to maintain tractive contact with the road surface so as to avoid uncontrolled skidding.

In a country like Ghana, and indeed many countries around the world, slippery and curvy roads are inevitable. It is also a known fact that anything can cross the road unexpectedly and the driver must either swerve them or bring the vehicle to an unpredictable stop. Vehicles without KABS would obviously skid uncontrollably and somersault when the drivers apply emergency brakes in such conditions as they would lose traction and control.

KABS allows Kantanka automobiles to safely swerve hazards at close range during emergency braking

Automobile Experts also maintain that when a driver on a vehicle without anti-lock braking system applies emergency brakes at close range, the vehicle would not be able to swerve the hazard and the driver would be at the mercy of accident. The said vehicle would definitely crash into the intruding object or vehicle. That is why everyone needs KABS.

KABS offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on dry, wet or slippery surfaces. On the same distance from an unexpected object, Kantanka automobiles would stop quickly before other vehicles without KABS thus avoiding accident.

Also, during the application of emergency and panic braking, the Kantanka Antilock brakes keep your wheels from locking up so your car maintains directional control around hazards even if the distance is too short and you can’t make a complete stop in time.

Now that we know the importance of KABS, let’s turn our attention to how it works

How KABS work

The Kantanka Anti-lock braking system has four strategic components, KSS (the Kantanka speed sensors), KP (the Kantanka pump), KV (the Kantanka valves) and KBU (the Kantanka brain unit).

  • KSS

At the mention of Kantanka sensors, people who have been following the works of Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo would be reminded of the sensors in his gadgets and equipment that operate by picking up signals from human breaths, claps, waves, whistles etc.

However, these automobile sensors are completely different and advance. They are manufactured with great strength and sensitivity to respond to emergency situations.

The Kantanka speed sensors at each wheel of the automobile pick signals and know which wheel is about to lock. This information is sent to the brain unit (KBU).

  • KV

There is a valve in the brake line of each brake controlled by the KABS. They are responsible for controlling the pressure within safety levels. Should the driver push the brake pedal harder, especially under panic conditions, the valves acts simultaneously and release the pressure. This prevent pressure from rising within the braking system.

  •    KP

When the valve releases the pressure line, the pump brings it back under controllable levels. This ensures that the pressure within the braking system is always at a safety level. 

  • KBU

This acts as the central processing unit of KABS. It controls the KSS, KV and the KP.

We wish to remind our readers that the Kantanka Braking System is much more complex than you have just read. We have simplified it to aid understanding.

Before reading further, please note that there are many different variations and control algorithms for KABS systems. This is just one of them and the most simple to understand.

The KBU monitors the speed sensors at all times. It keep an eye on abnormal decelerations. Before a wheel locks up, it will experience a rapid deceleration. If left unchecked, as with vehicles without KABS, the wheel would stop much more quickly than any car could. For example, under ideal conditions, a car moving at 60 mph (96.6kph) would take 5 seconds to stop but the wheel can get locked up and stop spinning in a fraction of a second.

The intelligent KBU knows that such a rapid deceleration is impossible, so it responds quickly by minimising the pressure to that brake until it detects an acceleration, then it increases the pressure until it sees the deceleration again. It does this very quickly, before the tyre can actually significantly change speed. The result is that the tyre slows down at the same rate as the car, with the brakes keeping the tyre from locking. This gives the system maximum braking power

In summary

The Kantanka Anti Lock Braking System:

  • enables Kantanka automobiles to stop faster, i.e. has less stopping distance preventing you from crashing into any object or vehicle you did not anticipate until you got closer.
  • prevents wheels from locking during panic stops thereby avoiding skidding, spinning and somersaulting as other vehicles do.
  • enables the driver to have more control over steering during emergencies. Since the KABS will not allow the tyres to stop rotating, you can brake and steer at the same time.
  • equips the driver to operate the vehicle effectively under normal and urgent situations.
  • enables Kantanka automobiles to have tractive control on dry, wet and slippery surfaces/roads and hence safer.
  • has maximum braking power.
  • helps prevent road accidents.
  • is recommended on roads with sharp curves like those of Ghana and other countries.
  • is ideal for professional drivers and learners.
  • is recommended for everybody.

NB: The Kantanka Anti-lock braking system works together with other active safety electronics on the Kantanka automobiles.

  1. wow great. Truly Ghanaians and Africans as a whole can take their destinies into their own hands, and do great things if they believe in themselves and fight inferiority complex.I believe kantanka has great potential and can venture into many fields of cutting edge technology. what is required is our support and strong mentality. Remember Rome was not built in a day,it took decades so let’s just believe and support. and this nation will shoot into greatness. Thanks

  2. u ain’t see anything yet
    This man is a bless and a fertile for Ghana generation let’s keep support Him and prove to the world that we Africans are capable and even advance than the white.God bless The Star of Africa God bless Ghana God bless the land of fertile soil

  3. infact i am sooooooooo happy to see this technology. infact i would glady own and use one by the grace of God. keep it up Apostle Dr. Personally i want to see more coz i know there is more you can do

  4. This kabs technology if we are not careful will be stolen by the so call white men who deny us visas and yet collect our money as visa fees and say they invented it. thank you kantanka for taking us gradually out of slavery. i know one day they will also pay visa fees and will be denied visas to come Ghana as we all pray and support the good work of Great Kosa. Long live Ghana long live Kantanka.

  5. let’s learn to support our very own. I’m just so proud to see all these things made by a Ghanaian. where are the investors? aren’t they proud of their sons and daughters who are trying to do all these to help make a name for our country? let’s learn to support our very own KANTANKA .

  6. Dr, thank so much for this blessing and raising the flag of our dear nation high,The people of Bekwai supports u. we are waiting to buy and feel the good work. God bless u.

  7. hmmmmm, am even short of words so all i can say is may Allah give this man long and healthy life.
    but seriously i think the marketing department department has got a great job to than katanka himself because they now, are suppose to make sure to sell good works katanka to the world and look for investors. forinstance they can start by working with celebraties in ghana to market their products just like what they are doing with john dumelo now.
    at think his excellency John Dramani Mahama can make all his cabinet ministers and all the Member of parliaments use the Katanka authomobiles to boost the people confidence in the cars, just as he gave that opportunity to ‘ hoffman shoes ‘ by wearing one of his shoes to parliament. God bless our homeland Ghana and make it great and strong. aaaaaaaaaaaameeeeeen.

  8. this is what we have been waiting for all this while. No more assemble in Africa or Ghana, but rather proudly made in Ghana and Ghanaian
