D. J. M. Sampson, G. McKevitt, D. Cebon, "The Development of an Active Roll Control System for Heavy Vehicles", Proc. 16th IAVSD Symposium on the Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and Tracks, Pretoria, South Africa, 1999.

This paper describes the development of an active roll control system for a tractor semi-trailer. The design of the roll control system hardware and software are detailed. Simulations of the yaw-roll response of the vehicle show that the system will provide significant improvements in rollover stability.
