They arent the same
Anti lock prevents you from panic locking any of your wheels sending you into a skid which you lose all control
Stability system prevents you from going sideways when it detects too much yaw and body roll and the car is moving in a direction not interpreted to be correct with where you have the steering wheel turned (via the steering wheel position sensor)
AND ! it does this NOT by anti-Locking brakes, but by applying the "brakes"
as needed to make ,the vehicle stable.

Traction Control and Stabilitrak both use the Anti-Lock Brake System to function in their prescribed manner. If the ABS malfunctions then Traction Control and Stabilitrak will not function correctly.
If the ABS malfunctions then Traction Control and Stabilitrak will not function correctly.
Actually, an ABS fault will deactivate Stability System, Traction Control & Adaptive Cruise Control.
