Vehicle Dynamics & Control and Tyre Modelling Research

Active Roll Control logo

Overview

Rollover of heavy good vehicles is a serious worldwide safety problem. Studies have shown that only a minority of rollover accidents can been avoided with a warning device, potentially more with a skilled driver, but approximately half of rollover accidents are not preventable by driver action alone. This highlights the need for an active safety system, such as an active roll control system consisting of active anti-roll bars and hydraulic actuators, which can significantly improve the roll stability of single unit and articulated heavy vehicles.
