Title
(EN) ACCELERATOR PEDAL FOR A VEHICLE
(FR) pedale d'accelerateur pour vehicule
Abstract
(EN)
A pedal assembly (20) that provides a hysteresis in pedal force-response upon actuation is provided. The pedal assembly includes a housing (32) and a pedal arm (22) that has an end. The end has a rotatable drum that defines a braking surface. The pedal arm is rotatably mounted to the housing. A lever extends from the second end. A brake pad is retained by the housing and has a contact surface that is substantially complementary to the braking surface. The brake pad is adapted to be engaged with the braking surface. A bias spring device is situated between the lever and the brake pad for urging the contact surface of the brake pad into frictional engagement with the braking surface of the drum. A sensor (80) is coupled to the pedal arm to sense the position of the pedal arm.
(FR)
L'invention a pour objet un ensemble pédale (20) qui produit une hystérésis de la réaction à la force de pédale lorsqu'il est activé. L'ensemble pédale comprend une enceinte (32) et un levier de pédale (22) à une extrémité. L'extrémité présente un tambour rotatif qui définit une surface de freinage. Le levier de pédale est monté rotatif sur l'enceinte. Un levier s'étend à partir de la seconde extrémité. Une plaquette de frein est maintenue par l'enceinte et présente une surface de contact sensiblement complémentaire à la surface de freinage. La plaquette est conçue pour venir en prise avec la surface de freinage. Un dispositif à ressort est placé entre le levier et la plaquette de frein pour pousser la surface de contact de la plaquette en frottement avec la surface de freinage du tambour. Un capteur (80) est couplé au levier de pédale pour détecter la position de ce dernier.
