Technology explained: Hill-Start Assist
Hill-start assist is a very useful feature that prevents cars from rolling back on an incline. All the modern cars come with this feature nowadays. The main technology behind Hill Start Assist is the use of sensors which detect the car on an incline and thus maintain the brake pressure for a set period of time between releasing the brake pedal and pressing the gas pedal. In manual cars, this works after the driver lifts off his foot from the clutch pedal.
