|1. (WO2018123437) ACCELERATOR PEDAL DEVICE|
|Title:||ACCELERATOR PEDAL DEVICE|
This accelerator pedal device is provided with a pedal arm (20) having an accelerator pedal, a housing (10) that swingably supports the pedal arm, a slider (30) that slides over the inner wall of the housing and that is pressed by the pushing of the accelerator pedal, a hysteresis-causing mechanism that includes an urging spring (40) for exerting urging force through the slider so as to push back the pedal arm with and that causes hysteresis in the pushing force, and a return spring (50) that exerts urging force directly on the pedal arm in order to return the pedal arm to a rest position, the urging spring (40) and the return spring (50) being disposed in the same area (C) inside the housing. This makes it possible to, inter alia, reduce the size of the device by arranging components together.
