NHVR releases footage of ‘world-first’ Rollover Stability Control testing

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has shared the results of its Rollover Stability Control (RSC) testing on an A-double combination.

The testing was recently conducted during a rigorous four-day program, where NHVR Chief Engineer, Les Bruzsa, provided technical oversight while a specialised A-double was subjected to high-speed dynamic manoeuvres used in Performance-Based Standards (PBS) assessments.

The project showcased the significant safety improvements that RSC technology can offer upon implementation.

“The project provided invaluable real-world data to support the NHVR’s engineering capabilities and initiatives, inform modern regulatory practices, drive development of the PBS scheme and contribute towards a safer future for all road users,” the NHVR said.

“The successful trial marks a landmark achievement in heavy vehicle engineering and safety, demonstrating the game-changing benefits that RSC technology can provide to heavy vehicles.”
