Abstract:Now a day’sRollover accidents are among the most dangerous type of vehicular crashes. They account for the highest fatality rate with more than 10,000 people killed every year in a rollover accident. Sport Utility Vehicles and light weight trucksare more susceptible to rolling over, because they have a higher center of gravity. In this paper the mechanism reports into the enhancements in vehicle dynamics by changing the height of centre of gravity by suitable methods. The main objective of the mechanism is to lower the height of centre of gravity during turning and thus enhancing the vehicle dynamics. Present day cars run at fast speeds and are getting faster day by day. As speed increases the threat to the lives of driver and passengers and other road pedestrian also increases. The major threats to human life are skidding and toppling. In this mechanism hybridizing of both the concepts i.e. turning and tilting at the same time has achieved. By altering the orientation of the front assembly,new mechanism designed which imparts entirely different orientation to the wheels while turning. Hence by changing the orientation it is able to tilt as well as turn the wheels extracting maximum benefits from this system which are being discussed in this paper. System modifies the steering mechanism of the vehicles. It has the unique ability to turn as well as tilt the front wheels simultaneously while synchronizing it with the tilting of the front wheels..

Keywords: Steering Wheel, Tilt Steering mechanism, Speed, Center of Gravity, Stability, Rolling, Skidding.
