It is estimated that in the United States, nearly one quarter of all fatal automobile accidents involve a vehicle rollover.  In order to reduce fatalities and serious injuries, it is desirable to develop a sensing system that can detect an imminent rollover condition with sufficient time to activate occupant safety protection devices. The goals of a Rollover Sensing Module (RSM) are;
- 1To accurately estimate vehicle roll and pitch angles
- 2To reliably predict in a timely manner an imminent rollover
- 3To eliminate false activation of safety devices
- 4To function properly during airborne conditions
- 5To be as autonomous as possible, not requiring information from other vehicle subsystems.
