As follower '6'
climbs down, piston '2' is pushed inside the cylinder by spring '4'
and brakes are applied. When paddle comes to position A the brakes
are fully applied.
When paddle is
released, it comes to position A due to spring fitted at the pivot
of paddle and the bracket in which pivot is fitted. The pivot,
bracket and the spring are not shown in the diagram.
Thus one paddle
is used for two functions of accelerator and brake of an automatic
transmission vehicle. The paddle operates with both the functions in
mutually exclusive way, thus when paddle is working as a brake
paddle, the accelerator is at idle status, and when paddle works as
an accelerator, the brakes remain fully released.
This system can
also be built using two paddles as shown in the diagram V on the
drawing page III.
system and the paddle ’9’ are same as above except it is not fitted
with limb '15' for accelerator.
accelerator paddle is provided which is same as conventional
accelerator paddle. Both the paddles are with limbs as shown in the
paddle has half pressing range (position C to E) whereas brake
paddle has movement range from position A to E. As brake paddle is
pressed to position C, the brakes are released, when brake paddle is
further pressed, the accelerator is also pressed due to overlapping
limbs of two paddles.
the system is same as explained above since the driver controls the
vehicle using only brake paddle.
