Roll Stability Control is designed to offer continuous protection against a vehicle rolling in dangerous conditions. The system uses a gyroscopic sensor to determine the vehicle’s roll rate and body roll angle, working to keep the tyres grounded in the event of an unstable situation. If the risk of a roll is increased, Electronic Stability Control is triggered, which controls the vehicle’s speed and restores stability.
This technology is particularly useful on vehicles with a high centre of gravity and for when off-camber turns are being tackled. It monitors the vehicle’s roll stability condition around 150 times per second to ensure that other systems are activated as soon as an unstable situation is encountered. Often, this will happen before you’re even aware of needing it.
Working in conjunction with a raft of other safety technologies, Roll Stability Control helps to ensure both you and your passengers are kept safe in a range of situations and on a variety of roads.
