This work presents results of an initial investigation into models and control strategies suitable to prevent vehicle rollover due to untripped driving maneuvers. Outside of industry, the study of vehicle rollover inclusive of both experimental validation and practical controller design is limited. The researcher interested in initiating study on rollover dynamics and control is left with the challenging task of identifying suitable vehicle models from the literature, comparing these models with experimental results, and determining suitable parameters for the models. This work addresses these issues via experimental testing of published models. Parameter estimation data based on model fits is presented, with commentary given on the validity of different methods. Experimental results are then presented and compared to the output predicted by the various models in both the time and frequency domain in order to provide a foundation for future work.
