Traction control, when engaged "senses" when a driving tire has no traction. The system will then compensate for this by slowing the spinning wheel through partial application of the brake, reducing power or both. The system uses wheel speed sensors to monitor the wheel speed. When traction is lost the sensor prompts the brake computer to partially apply the brake to the wheel that is spinning, allowing it to gain traction. Sort of like Antilock brakes in reverse.
