The main purpose of this project is to design and analyze an effective and practical pedal box for the 2010 UTP Formula SAE car by improving the parameters such as pedal box size, pedal travel, pedal ratio, input force and ergonomic concept. The pedal box that used for braking and accelerating is a vital part of the vehicle because the driver directly interacts with it and this makes ergonomics considerations essential to the success of the design. The scope of study includes the material selection, fabrication and stress-strain analysis without violating Formula SAE design specification outlines rules. The calculations of the pedal ratio and pedal travel angle were done using Microsoft Excel. Once the geometry was finalized, the design was drawn using CATIA. FEA on certain key components was conducted using the functions of the same software. The dynamics and kinematics of the design was analyzed using ADAMS. In ADAMS, the design was simulated to obtain the force or load distribution of the pedals. The results verified the improvement in the final design compared to the previous design such as pedal box size reduction, optimum pedal ratio and pedal travel values, and the ideal range of input force.
