Rollover accidents are responsible for a significant percentage of occupant injuries. Fatal rollovers account for 20 to 25% of all fatal crashes. The purpose of this paper is to review a portion of the available field data for rollover accidents, propose a set of system level objectives for occupant protection and discuss the configuration and performance of a system designed to fulfill these objectives.
