This paper provides a brief description of a Rollover Stability Mechanism in modern day cars incorporating the use of a modified suspension system which enables us to stop unexpected vehicle rollovers while they take place. Rollover mechanisms in conventional cars are incorporated with the help of anti roll bars which helps in stabilizing the car. Modern day cars are incorporated with user controlled programmes which would automatically control the car before the rollover takes place. The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is one of those programmes which uses both ABS (Anti Brake Locking System) and TCS (Traction Control System) systems. This system identifies the various prerequisites that take place before a rollover and takes appropriate measures to avoid the forthcoming rollover. Inspite of this we see a lot of accidents due to over speeding ultimately leading to rollover at the turns or skidding of the car in tight turns at high speeds. This paper focuses on a method which can be used as a secondary safety measure for rollover accidents. The system discussed in this paper elaborates the use of a modified suspension system which is incorporated with the modern day ESC (Electronic Stability Control) unit in the vehicle. The Suspension used here is a hydraulic suspension system which is literally a piston cylinder arrangement with an inlet and outlet port for the hydraulic fluid.
