Safety has the highest priority for the HAN Formula Student team. But what does the driver need to be safe and to prevent dangerous accidents? – A brake pedal.

Of course, he also needs seat belts and other safety devices but a brake pedal is the first step to prevent a risky situation.

Therefore the suspension department is designing a brake pedal, using Solidworks. The program allows the students to design a part, to change dimensions easily and to make simulations to determine the best material and shape.

Furthermore the department decided to use one piece wheels although the construction method and the material to be used still has to be researched.
