Title
(EN) Accelerator reaction force control apparatus
Abstract
(EN)

An accelerator reaction force control apparatus is provided with an accelerator position detecting device, a reaction force varying device and a threshold value setting device. The reaction force varying device varies a reaction force of the accelerator so as to increase a reaction force of the accelerator by a prescribed increase amount with respect to a base reaction force when the accelerator position is equal to or larger than an accelerator position threshold value. The reaction force varying device also varies a reaction force increase rate at a first increase rate during a first reaction force increase period of the increase of the reaction force, and at a second increase rate during a second reaction force increase period of the increase of the reaction force. The second increase rate is larger during the second reaction force increase period than during the first reaction force increase period.
