Research on Pedal Feeling Simulator Based on Magnetorheological Liquid


Article Preview

Brake-by-wire is development direction of vehicle brake system, pedal feeling simulator is an important part of brake-by-wire. In this paper, one type of pedal feeling simulator whose damping is adjustable based on controllable rheological properties of magnetorheological liquid is proposed on the basis of analyzing relationship between pedal displacement and pedal pressure of traditional brake system. The structure is designed, damping is calculated, magnetic circuit is analysed and parameters are confirmed. The result shows that the pedal feeling simulator designed can meet actual requirements, and has certain practical value.
