— Quantifying a vehicle's rollover propensity is a complex task and one that is of major concern to vehicle dynamicists. This research effort illustrates how a scaled vehicle can be used in determining vehicle properties that influence rollover propensity. A two-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) and a global positioning system (GPS) unit are mounted to a(More)
