I think a vac pressure switch would do. Just need a tee in the line to the vac pump and a simple SMC vacuum switch. This statement is also inconsistent with the braking assist paragraph, which mentions vacuum and air. What about an air pressure failure? Neither paragraph mentions any other type of brake assist i.e. hydraulic.
I think the whole paragraph should be less specific and simply require a braking assistance failure warning.
Are they implying we need some sort of dual pot setup with redundancy or failover? I don't know how to pass this one.
I would hope that hall effect pedals would be OK as they are (supposedly) failsafe. I think the comment is in reference to pot boxes specifically as they can wear a "spot" on the most commonly used throttle position.
The discussion document covers the need for redundancy
Anyone else submitted feedback to this document?
I actually have the greatest resistance to the warning sitcker on the bumper! In my opinion it signals that my vehicle is somehow unsafe and inherently dangerous.
Will petrol cars need to have a "flammable" sticker attached - I think not.
Something else that kind of slips in - how do you detect whether a ventilation fan is working or not? I did find some Omron resistive flow sensors on RSnewzealand but they start at 120 bucks and go up from there.
