Abstract:
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; 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.
