This idea is a variation of „Wheel Brake“
The objective is the same as in "Wheel Brake"
Benefits of "Pedals" opposite "Wheel Brake"
In an emergency stop you lose valuable time by taking the foot from the accelerator and putting it on the brake pedal, which leads to an unnecessarily long stopping distance.
In addition, there is a danger that the driver in the hustle and bustle of an emergency (shock) catches their foot behind the brake pedal and so there is no braking at all.
Conventional designed pedals are completely eliminated. In their place, a tread surface is used, which is interrupted of a slight elevation (center bar) in the middle.
In an emergency, the right foot can be put to the left onto the brake surface at lightning speed. More secure and much faster than with conventional pedals, since the leg must not be drawn back first.

testing, control logic, redundancy and links to other websites.
