Title: Bywire system shift lever device for vehicles

Abstract: A bywire system shift lever device for vehicles includes a base member, a lever member to be driven by an operating element, an electric motor provided on the lever member, a transmission mechanism to transmit a rotation of a rotating shaft to the lever member, a first position detecting sensor for supplying first position signals representing the operating angle of the lever member, and a second position detecting sensor for supplying second position signals. Consequently the electric motor is controlled by the second position signals and thus a predetermined sensory resistance is provided to the operating element by a force of the rotating shaft of the electric motor applied via transmission mechanisms.
