Standard rudder autopilot algorithms typically use a combination of PID control and fuzzy logic algorithms to control the rudder input signal. Changing the roll angle of the deflection can cause the rudder to tip over. The solution is a control system that recognises the potential danger of tipping over, and with a suitable model it would be possible to avoid such dangerous situations.
