The reduction of injuries related to tractor rollovers is important to the agricultural
industry. ROPS (Roll-Over Protective Structures) and seat belts have been installed on
many tractors, though many are still without this protective equipment. The existing
hazard of tractor rollover is still impacting operators and encourages scientists to
develop more effective control technologies and protective equipment.
