Development of an Automotive Rollover Sensor 2000-01-1651

It is estimated that in the United States, nearly one quarter of all fatal automobile accidents involve a vehicle rollover. [1] 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;
  1. 1
    To accurately estimate vehicle roll and pitch angles
  2. 2
    To reliably predict in a timely manner an imminent rollover
  3. 3
    To eliminate false activation of safety devices
  4. 4
    To function properly during airborne conditions
  5. 5
    To be as autonomous as possible, not requiring information from other vehicle subsystems.
