James E White, John Zdanys Jr: Electronic accelerator pedal assembly with pedal force sensor. CTS Corporation, Albert W Watkins, January 31, 1995: US05385068 (56 worldwide citation)

A pedal bracket assembly translates pedal motion into a first switching motion without change of position being sensed by a position sensor. Additional pedal motion does not further change the switch position, but is translated into motion sensed by the position sensor. In this way, the switching fu ...

Raymond J Moonen: Hydraulic-pneumatic motor. Albert W Watkins, October 13, 1998: US05819533 (41 worldwide citation)

A hydraulic motor has three interconnected power pistons. The pistons include passageways therebetween that allow a working fluid to be conserved upon reciprocating piston motion. Valves control the pressure state of working fluid within working chambers, which in turn will cause the three piston as ...
