The Active Pedal is an innovative accelerator pedal developed by Robert Bosch GmbH which applies haptic stimuli (vibration, counterforce or knocking) under certain situations; the commercial target of the pedal is the automotive market, aiming to reduce the fuel consumption and to improve the safety during driving.
The objective of this Alta Scuola Politecnica multidisciplinary project is to identify new possible pedal uses, mainly dealing with the connectivity, to prove the pedal effectiveness and to evaluate new business opportunities in the global mobility environment.
