ATC - Active Tilt Control

The Active Tilt Control is a technology used by some SUVs belonging to brands from the Ford Motor Company. Like other similar systems, ATC is used primarily for controlling body lean while the vehicle is cornering. A mounted accelerometer gives a lateral acceleration signal to a control module, which in turn directs pressure from pumps to hydraulic cylinders that replace the stabilizer bar links. The hydraulic cylinders wind up the stabilizer bars, thus minimizing the vehicle's body lean during hard cornering.
