This paper presents the design and analysis of a linear actuator for vehicle Eco-Pedal system. To prevent the excessive gas consumption for fuel-efficient vehicle the electric actuator produces a counter force to the vehicle's pedal to be pressed stiffly. Major performances of the actuator are required such as a high force density and a low detent force. In this paper, the analysis and design technique of the actuator thrust is based on an analytical method, and the advisability of the design result is verified with both the result of the experiment and the result of the finite element method.
