Can the ATC ABS sensitivity be adjusted?

My ABS kicks in sometimes when I brake on a rough road and the other day right after the abs kicked in at a light I then tried accelerating and the ATC kicked in. Its only happened this one time about a week ago and I've put some miles on the car since. Bud of mine said that my wheel sensor might have had some dust or dirt on it which caused this to happen. I was thinking that maybe the "sensitivity" either on the throttle body or wheel sensor needs to be adjusted-is this possible?

What's a ATC? I know ASC, which is your traction control. ABS is your Anti-Brake System, which comes on when it sense you losing control of the car. The ASC and ABS work together to save you from falling down the cliff, when you tried to race a P on the twisties

There's nothing you can do to "adjust" it. Just try to slow down,when you near the "rough" roads.
