The methodology and results of an evaluation of three automobile foot pedal configurations are provided. The configuration of primary interest was developed as a result of a series of empirical studies conducted to determine drivers' preferences and expectancies for pedal location. Although no significant differences among the pedal configurations were identified, the empirically developed pedal configuration is consistent with the expectancies and preferences of a large proportion of drivers.
