Promoting Activities of ESC
ESC has significant preventative and safety effects. Demonstration data proved that ESC can reduce single accidents by *44%. ADVICS accordingly established the ESC Dissemination Committee with the Bosch Corporation and Continental Automotive Corporation to promote awareness and dissemination of ESC. The results of such activities have promoted mandatory ESC in many countries in the world, while the gradual introduction of mandatory ESC has been implemented in Japan since 2012. All passenger cars that receive a type approval on and after February 24, 2018 are required to equip with ESC.

Uniformity of address terms
As automobile manufacturer use their own terms for ESC, such as VSC and ESP, users are confused and this may cause non-dissemination of the activities.Therefore, we have proposed the uniformity of "ESC" and we are promoting "ESC" to automobile related organizations and to mass communication.
