Anti Accident Pedal / Car Acceleration Pedal

Anti Accident Pedal
Anti Accident Pedal

In addition to the conventional, stand-alone brake pedal, the Anti-Accident Accelerator Pedal provides an extra emergency brake under the accelerator, with a pressure-driven latch separating the two triggers. Under normal driving conditions in which the driver applies typical force to the accelerator, the latch shields the emergency brake from activation. When the driver stomps down on the accelerator in an emergency, the heightened force releases the latch and triggers the emergency brake. The car stops immediately and prevents accidents caused by unintended acceleration.
