Title:
ACCELERATOR PEDAL APPARATUS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/008436
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present invention provides an accelerator pedal apparatus able to relieve the fatigue of a driver so as to improve driving ease, able to apply a reaction force appropriate for the driving conditions, and able to perform distance control or the like. This accelerator pedal apparatus includes: a pedal arm (20); a housing (10) which turnably supports the pedal arm (20); a first return spring (30) which applies biasing force for returning the pedal arm (20) to a resting position; a movable member (40) which is disposed so as to be movable with respect to the housing (10) while receiving the reaction force from the first return spring (30); a reaction force spring (50) which is interposed between the movable member (40) and the pedal arm (20) so as to generate reaction force against pedal pressure; a lock mechanism (70, 80) which is capable of locking the movable member (40) at a desired timing so as to be incapable of moving; and a reaction force adjusting mechanism (100, 110, 120) which adjusts the biasing force of the reaction force spring (50) at a desired timing.
