with sensors on two axles
Explanation:
maybe

ABS picks up information that says a wheel is sliding when the brakes are applied and when this occurs ensures the brakes are repeatedly applied for very brief instants only. That is why you have the sensation you are being kicked in the foot by the brake pedal.

Presumabl there are sensors attached to the weheels that pick up this information.
