Reliability Control of Electric Racing Car’s Accelerator and Brake Pedals

Considering the rules of Formula Student Racing regarding functional and safety requirements of an electric vehicle’s power system, a reliability control model of accelerator and brake pedal is developed in the Matlab/Simulink platform. Voltage signals of the accelerator pedal are filtered. An ampli...

Voltage signals of the accelerator pedal are filtered. An amplitude limit module and consistency module check the filtered voltage signals of the accelerator pedal. The voltage signal of the brake pedal is processed to achieve the accurate position of the accelerator pedal and avoid the influence of incorrect signals and mis-operation on safety. The control model need not change the structure of the pedal and increase the sensors. Simulation and experimental results verified that the model can effectively avoid influences of pedal vibration on the voltage signal, identify the faulty signals and cut power output when the accelerator and brake pedal are depressed simultaneously.https://www.mdpi.com/2032-6653/12/1/1accelerator pedalbrake pedalsimulationreliability control
