Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention [0001] The present invention relates to a pedal-

The present invention relates to a pedal operation mechanism of a vehicle capable of providing a similar pedal operation feeling regardless of which part of the pedal pad is depressed during pedal operation.

Generally, the pedal operation device is classified into a pendent type and an organ type according to the structure in which it is mounted. In the case of a pendant type pedal device that is commonly used, the operation feeling felt by the driver is not good during operation and the pedal is not precisely manipulated Accordingly, there was a problem that the driver feels uncomfortable.

On the other hand, the organ type pedal device has improved pedal operation feeling and can be operated with precision, so that the operability of the pedal can be improved, thereby providing the driver with an excellent pedal operation feeling.

However, in the case of the conventional organ type pedal device, since it is rotated about the hinge provided on the floor under the driver's seat, the operation feeling is different according to the position where the pedal pad is applied, and the driver feels inconvenience in operating the pedal.

Specifically, since the organ type pedal device is rotated about the hinge, pressing the pedal pad at a distance from the hinge reduces the force required to operate the pedal pad. However, depending on the driver's body shape or pedal operation habits, the pedal position may be different, and depending on the driving situation, the pedal operation portion can not always be the same by changing the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal.

Therefore, when the pedal pad is pressed against the upper portion of the pedal pad, the pedal operation felt by the driver feels light. However, when the pedal pad is pressed against the lower portion of the pedal pad, the pedal operation felt by the driver may feel heavy.

Therefore, even if a pedal pad is depressed at the time of pedal operation, the reaction force due to the depression of the driver is similarly realized, so that there is a need for a technique to solve the pedal operation feeling that can be felt differently according to the driver's body shape or pedal operation habit.

It should be understood that the foregoing description of the background art is merely for the purpose of promoting an understanding of the background of the present invention and is not to be construed as an admission that the prior art is known to those skilled in the art.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention has been proposed in order to solve such a problem, and it is an object of the present invention to provide a pedal operation mechanism of a vehicle which can similarly provide a pedal operation feeling felt by a driver regardless of which part of the pedal pad is applied when the pedal of the vehicle is operated .

According to an aspect of the present invention, there is provided a pedal operation device for a vehicle, the pedal operation device comprising: a pedal pad provided in a lower space of a driver's seat to receive a driver's pressing force; The pedal pad is connected to the upper portion of the pedal pad, and when a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad, the pedal pad is elastically deformed, And a hinge portion which is moved downward.

The pedal pad may have an upper end coupled to a pedal arm provided in front of the driver's seat lower space.

The pedal arm may be rotated in conjunction with a pedal pad that is rotated when a pressing force is applied to the pedal pad.

The hinge portion may be formed in a cylindrical shape, a circumferential surface thereof may be in contact with the floor, a lower end of the pedal pad may be connected to the upper rear side, and a lower side thereof may be fixed to the floor.

The hinge portion may have a cylindrical shape with a hollow.

When a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad, the hinge portion is elastically deformed into an elliptic shape, thereby guiding the pedal pad to move forward.

When a pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad, the pedal pad may be moved forward and the lower end may slip backward.

The pedal pad and the hinge portion are respectively formed with a coupling hole and a coupling hole, and the coupling member is coupled through each hole, so that the pedal pad and the hinge portion are mutually coupled.

And a fixing bracket fixed to the driver's seat floor and having an insertion hole formed therein, wherein the hinge portion has a fastening hole formed at a lower side thereof, and the fastening member is fastened through the fastening hole and the insertion hole so that the fastening portion and the fastening bracket are coupled to each other can do.

The pedal operation mechanism of the vehicle has a structure in which the pedal pad is elastically deformed so that the pedal pad is moved forward when a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad by a hinge portion formed of an elastic body that can be elastically deformed at a lower end portion of the pedal pad, The force required to rotate the pedal pad can be reduced when a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion.

Therefore, regardless of which part of the pedal pad is depressed when the pedal of the vehicle is operated, it is possible to similarly provide a pedal operation feeling felt by the driver.

Hereinafter, a pedal operation mechanism of a vehicle according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view illustrating a pedal operation mechanism of a vehicle according to an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a pedal pad 100 provided in a lower space of a driver's seat to receive a driver's pressing force. The pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper portion of the pedal pad 100 and the pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100 And a hinge unit 200 for allowing the pedal pad 100 to be moved forward and downward by elastic deformation.

Of course, according to the present invention, even if a pressing force is applied to the upper end portion of the pedal pad 100, the hinge portion 200 is elastically deformed so that the pedal pad 100 is rotated. The main object of the present invention is to reduce the force required to rotate the pedal pad 100 when the driver presses the pedal pad 100 at the lower end thereof, The present invention will be described focusing on a state in which a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100. [

Generally, in the operation of the organ type pedal, since the pedal pad 100 rotates around the hinge provided at the lower portion of the driver's seat, as the distance from the hinge to the position for pressing the pedal pad 100 is larger, . On the other hand, as the position for pressing the pedal pad 100 is closer to the hinge side, more force is required to operate the pedal.

In order to solve the above problem, the pedal pad 100 may be connected to a pedal arm 120 provided at the front of the driver's seat lower space. In addition, the pedal arm 120 may be rotated in conjunction with the pedal pad 100 rotated when a pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100.

The pedal arm 120 provides a restoring force so that the pedal pad 100 rotated in the direction of pressing the pedal pad 100 is rotated to provide the driver with an answer according to the depression of the pedal pad 100.

Here, the pedal pad structure of the present invention may be variously applied to vehicles such as a pendant type, an organ type, and the like, but the description of the present invention will be made with reference to an orthodynamic type pedal structure.

The pedal pad 100 connected to the pedal arm 120 is connected to a hinge part 200 formed of an elastic body that can be elastically deformed at a lower end thereof and installed on the floor. When the pedal pad 100 is connected to the hinge part 200, the lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper rear side of the hinge part 200.

A general pedal operation mechanism is provided with a hinge at a lower end thereof so that the pedal pad 100 can be rotated as the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100 through the driver. In contrast, in the pedal operation mechanism of the present invention, as the pedal pad 100 is pressed against the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 is rotated and the hinge portion 200, which is elastically deformed at the lower end of the pedal pad 100, So that the pedal pad 100 is rotated by elastic deformation of the pedestal 200.

Since the hinge unit 200 is elastically deformed by the pressing force applied to the pedal pad 100, when the driver's pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100, the hinge unit 200 can be flexibly deformed And the lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper rear side of the hinge portion 200 so that the rotation of the pedal pad 100 is facilitated.

According to the present invention having such a structure, when the pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 is moved forward as the hinge portion 200 is elastically deformed, It is possible to reduce the force required to operate the pedal even when it is pressurized.

More specifically, as described above, as the position at which the pedal pad 100 is pressed toward the hinge portion 200, which is a reference point when the pedal pad 100 is rotated, .

However, according to the present invention, when the pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 is moved forward and downward as the hinge portion 200 is elastically deformed. As the pedal pad 100 is moved forward by the hinge part 200 which is elastically deformed when the pressing force is applied, the rotation angle of the pedal pad 100 required for operating the pedal is reduced, It is possible to reduce the turning force as much as the rotation angle.

Of course, a pressing force applied to the pedal pad 100 to elastically deform the hinge unit 200 is required. However, when pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 is required to rotate about the hinge 100 The force required to press the pedal pad 100 toward the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100 is reduced by applying the structure of the present invention because the force required to move the pedal pad 100 forward is smaller than the force required to move the pedal pad 100 forward.

The pedal arm 120 supporting the pedal pad 100 may be rotated in conjunction with the pedal pad 100 rotated when a pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100.

The pedal arm 120 is connected to the upper end of the pedal pad 100 through the connecting member 160. The pedal pad 120 is connected to both ends of the connecting member 160 and the upper end of the pedal pad 100, The pedal pad 100 can be flexibly transmitted to the pedal arm 120 when the pedaling force is applied to the pedal pad 100 by applying a hinge structure to the pedal pad 100. [

That is, in the present invention, when a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100, the hinge portion 200 is elastically deformed so that the pedal pad 100 is moved forward so that the pedal arm 120 is also tilted at a certain angle It is possible to reduce the force required to rotate the pedal pad 100 even if the pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100. [

Meanwhile, the hinge unit 200 is formed as a cylinder, a circumferential surface thereof is brought into contact with the floor, a lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper rear side, and a lower side thereof is fixed to the floor. In addition, the hinge unit 200 may be formed into a hollow cylindrical shape.

The hinge portion 200 of the present invention is configured such that when the lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper rear side and the lower side thereof is fixed to the floor of the lower space of the driver's seat and the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100, Respectively. Particularly, when a pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100, the hinge part 200 must be elastically deformed so that the pedal pad 100 is moved forward, and the hinge part 200 can be flexibly deformed Structure should be applied.

Therefore, the hinge portion 200 is formed in a hollow cylindrical shape, thereby forming a favorable condition for flexibly and positively elastically deforming as the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100.

The lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the upper rear side of the hinge unit 200 so that the pedal pad 100 can be moved forward while deforming the hinge unit 200 when the pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100. [ So that the pedal pad 100 can be easily rotated about the hinge unit 200. [0064] As shown in FIG.

Fig. 3 is a view showing that the pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100 in the pedal operation mechanism shown in Fig. 1 to deform the hinge portion 200. As the pedal pad 100 is pressed against the pedal pad 100, The hinge unit 200 is elastically deformed in an oval shape forward when the leg pressure is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100 to induce the pedal pad 100 to move forward do.

The hinge portion 200 of the present invention should be elastically deformed so that the pedal pad 100 is moved forward when a pressing force is applied to the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100. [ The hinge unit 200 is formed in a hollow circular shape so that the pedal pad 100 can be flexibly elastically deformed as the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100, and when the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100, the hinge unit 200 is deformed into an oblique- The pedal pad 100 is moved forward.

That is, when the lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected to the rear of the upper portion of the hinge portion 200 and the pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100, the hinge portion 200 is deformed into an oval shape forward, The rotational angle of the pedal pad 100 required for the operation is reduced, and the force required to operate the pedal is reduced.

On the other hand, when a pressing force is applied to the lower end of the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 is moved forward and the lower end is slid backward.

When the pedaling force is applied to the pedal pad 100, the pedal pad 100 rotates about the hinge 200 while moving toward the front. As the pedaling force applied to the pedal pad 100 increases, The pedestal 200 is elastically deformed so that the lower end of the pedal pad slips rearward. That is, as the pressing force is applied to the pedal pad 100, the lower end portion of the pedal pad 100 is slid rearward so that the pedal pad 100 is easily rotated to improve the pedal operation feeling, Can be reduced.

FIG. 4 is an assembled view of the pedal operation mechanism of the vehicle shown in FIG. 1. Referring to FIG. 4, a coupling hole 140 and a connection hole 240 are formed in the pedal pad 100 and the hinge portion 200, So that the pedal pad 100 and the hinge unit 200 can be coupled with each other.

Although the pedal pad 100 and the hinge unit 200 of the present invention may be integrally manufactured at the time of manufacturing the pedal pad 100 and the hinge unit 200 separately, 240, the connecting member C is fastened, thereby simplifying the manufacturing process. In addition, when one of the pedal pad 100 and the hinge unit 200 is damaged, it is not necessary to replace the entire pedal module, but only the damaged pedal pad 100 or the hinge unit 200 can be replaced, thereby increasing the unnecessary cost Can be solved.

4, the hinge unit 200 further includes a fixing bracket 300 fixed to the driver's floor and formed with an insertion hole 320. The hinge unit 200 has a coupling hole 220 formed on a lower side thereof, The fastening member C 'is fastened through the insertion hole 320 and the fastening hole 220 so that the hinge unit 200 and the fastening bracket 300 can be coupled to each other.

Here, the fixing bracket 300 may be configured such that the hinge part 200 to which the lower end of the pedal pad 100 is connected is fixed to the floor. A fastening hole 220 is formed on the lower side of the hinge part 200 and an insertion hole 320 is formed in the fastening bracket 300 so as to correspond to the fastening hole 220 so as to be assembled through the fastening member C '.

The fixing bracket 300 fixed to the floor of the driver's seat space has a hinge portion 200 connected to the upper side and a lower end portion of the pedal pad 100 connected to the upper rear side of the hinge portion 200, And the pedal structure of the present invention can be easily applied.

The coupling member C and the coupling member C 'are bolts and nuts which are used to connect the pedal pad 100 and the hinge unit 200 or the hinge unit 200 and the fixing bracket 300, Or connecting means. However, by using bolts and nuts which can be generally used, the manufacturing process can be simplified and the cost can be reduced.
