YAW

Definition: The rotation of the vehicle's body around its center point as viewed from above. When a vehicle enters a turn or makes a sudden lane change, it experiences a change in yaw. A yaw sensor in the ABS stability control system senses this change to determine if the vehicle is experiencing understeer or oversteer. If the yaw rate indicates a problem, corrective actions are taken to help keep the vehicle under control.
