This TOP prescribes procedures for testing the electronic stability control system of two-axle vehicles up to 11,793 kg 26,000 lb for speeds up to 81 kmhr 50 mph. Major factors to be considered when testing the yaw and roll stability of wheeled vehicles are their capability and behavior during sudden obstacle avoidance actions. Electronic stability control systems are employed on some vehicles to mitigate oversteer or spin-out and rollover. The sine-with-dwell steering maneuver was developed as an objective test of vehicle stability and electronic stability control system performance.
