Onspot Automatic Traction Control

By pressing a button on the dashboard a chain wheel is lowered so it contacts the inside of the tyre. The contact between the tyre and the rubber-covered chain wheel causes the chain wheel to rotate, creating enough centrifugal force to extend the chains out in front of and under the tyre.
