This paper describes a new and original way of car stabilization as an alternative or support for the common ESP stabilization method. It summarizes the properties of present car stabilization systems and their advantages and disadvantages. Then the pneumatic stabilization method is described, which uses compressed air to trigger the necessary reacting forces that are applied to a vehicle in case of the loss of adherence. To prove the new stabilization method, there are stated some basic calculations of the jets and the obtained reacting forces are identified. Finally, the results are discussed and evaluated.
