BMW 5 Series: Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

Alongside the Vertical Dynamics Platform (VDP) control unit, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) represents the core element of the driving dynamics control systems used to increase active safety. It optimizes driving stability in all driving conditions and also traction when driving off and accelerating.

Furthermore, it identifies unstable driving conditions such as under or oversteering and helps maintain the stability of the vehicle.
