Watch: World-first testing of Rollover Stability Control

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has shared footage of its Rollover Stability Control (RSC) testing to highlight the technology’s effectiveness.

The footage, shared below, shows how the vehicle performs when the RSC is active, compared to when the technology is switched off.

Following the testing, the regulator said, “This successful trial marks a landmark achievement in heavy vehicle engineering and safety, demonstrating the benefits that RSC technology can provide to heavy vehicles.”

A specialised A-double was used for RSC the research project, which took place over the course of four days.

The vehicle combination was pushed to its limits, performing high-speed dynamic manoeuvres used in PBS assessments. “This showcased the significant safety improvements that RSC technology can offer whilst contributing towards a safer future for all road users,” said the NHVR.

The testing program and research project was undertaken in conjunction with partners National Transport Research Organisation, Kenworth Australia and the Australian Automotive Research Centre.
