The electronic throttle control system, also known as the electric remote control driving system, is a typical example of applying an ingenious design to automotive engineering. Most of the work used to test the safety of electronic throttle control systems for automobiles has been carried out on military and civilian aircraft. Without the continuous monitoring of the computer and the constant adjustment of the control plane, some new aircraft simply cannot fly. The need for ultra-reliable, remote computer control execution of aircraft has greatly promoted the development of related technologies for electric remote control driving systems.
With the electronic throttle control system
, the driver's intention is generally achieved through the accelerator pedal assembly (TPA), and the driver's intention is transmitted to the control computer through the sensor. The accelerator pedal assembly is equipped with three identical position sensors. When one of the sensors fails, the accelerator pedal can still transmit the driver's intention to the control computer. In addition, the accelerator pedal assembly is also provided with an idle switch and a throttle full open switch. These two switches correspond to the driver's minimum and maximum input intent, respectively. The second purpose of using the accelerator pedal assembly is to allow the driver to still experience the "feel" of the replaced mechanical cable and spring.
