|20140347755||Folding Rearview Mirror For Motor Vehicles - A base member fixed to a vehicle, a housing with a rearview mirror, a motor component to rotate the rearview housing relative to the base, two sets of ramps independent of each other, capable of sliding on corresponding fixed ramps of the base element and first and second resilient elements. The ramps of the first and second sets have different inclinations and the resilient elements have different spring rates from one another, depending on whether the drive housing is manually or motor driven.||11-27-2014|
|20140340921||MIRROR DEVICE FOR MOTOR VEHICLES - An outer housing with a cover having a PVD coating; a lens; and an illumination device such as LEDs, light guides, light emitting surfaces and/or blinkers. The lens has a first area internal to the cover, and a second, transparent area extending to one side of the outer housing. The cover has a first cover element external to the lens and of a nature such that the illumination device is visible from the exterior when it is on and not visible from the exterior when it is off. The cover has a substantially opaque second cover element having an overlapping portion between the first area of the lens and the first cover element.||11-20-2014|
|20140090946||CLUTCH SUITABLE FOR VEHICLES' POWERED MIRRORS - The present invention relates to a clutch mechanism preferably used in a vehicle door mirror with a high durability and which allows reaching, in a fast and simple way, a preset compression level owing to the existence of two limiting surfaces||04-03-2014|
|20120275044||MIRROR SUPPORT AND DEVICE TO ADJUST THE ORIENTATION OF A MIRROR - The present invention relates to a mirror support used in a door mirror vehicle which provides stability and distributes the forces in an uniform way due to two gear knees which are attached to the first ends of two perpendicular arms, a first arm and a second arm setting up a cross and also relates to a device to adjust the orientation of a mirror comprising the clutch mechanism.||11-01-2012|
|20120165622||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MEASURING PHYSIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS - A method for determining at least one physiological parameter of a driver, pilot or transport of defence vehicle or system operator, comprising: a) injecting or inducing current into said individual; b) measuring in said individual an electrical parameter indicating their impedance, comprising: b1) measuring the electrical parameter with at least two pairs of injector-detector electrodes; b2) determining the impedance signal from the electrical parameter measured; b3) from amongst the impedance signals determined, identifying those with a physiological origin; and b4) selecting the pair of electrodes that produce the best quality impedance signal; and c) obtaining said physiological parameter from the best quality impedance signal.||06-28-2012|
|20090244743||FIXING DEVICE FOR POSITION REGULATING MECHANISMS FOR EXTERNAL REAR-VIEW MIRRORS ON MOTOR VEHICLES - A fixing device for position regulating mechanisms for external rear-view mirrors for motor vehicles, applicable to external rear-view mirrors of the type which are comprised of a support (||10-01-2009|
|20090147388||VEHICLE EXTERIOR REAR-VIEW MIRROR - The invention relates to a vehicle exterior rear-view mirror including a casing or chassis with a neck to which an adaptor is mated. The adaptor has an abutment surface adapted to abut against a support sheet element associated to an outer panel of the vehicle. The support sheet element has an opening aligned with respective passages of the casing and the adaptor, respectively. A coupling stem is installed through the passages with the possibility of rotation and axial movement. Anchor configurations are formed at a lower end of the stem, the configurations engaging portions of the lower face of the support sheet element adjacent to the opening. An elastic element is arranged between the casing and the stem to push the stem inwards the casing or chassis.||06-11-2009|
|20080266688||Folding Mechanism for Exterior Rear-View Mirrors in Automotive Vehicles - The present invention relates to a folding mechanism for exterior rear-view mirrors in an automotive vehicle, comprising a housing integral with a mirror-carrying casing, and an actuated ring acting as an axis of rotation of the mentioned casing with respect to a support chassis fixed to the vehicle, the ring being provided with first positional fixing means susceptible to coupling the mentioned ring to the support chassis and with second positional fixing means which, in collaboration with a stop element integral with the housing and loaded by un elastic member, limit the rotation of the mentioned casing around the ring and according to one rotating direction, all this with the stop element and the elastic member being integrated in a single piece with elastic properties.||10-30-2008|
