  • Patent number: 11239541
    Abstract: The invention provides a radar bracket with self-adaptiveness to a curved surface. The radar bracket comprises: a bracket body provided with a radar mounting part; and, a bracket flanging configured to be fixed to a skin and being arranged at a periphery of the bracket body. The bracket flanging is provided with a plurality of weakened structures for providing its self-adaptiveness to a curved surface. When the radar bracket is to be bonded or welded to a skin, thanks to the bracket flanging's ability of easily deform to adapt to different curved surfaces, the same radar bracket can be attached to different positions of the skin with different curvatures. According to the invention, it is provided a radar bracket with self-adaptiveness to a curved surface that can be used universally all over an assembled automobile, hence the production costs, the mounting costs, and the probability of erroneous mounting are greatly reduced.

  • Patent number: 11161556
    Abstract: An active front splitter for automobile is movably connected to a splitter support by a spindle support at each of its two ends. A driving mechanism being mounted to the splitter support at each of its two ends, an electric motor being mounted in the middle of the splitter support. The driving mechanism is driven by the electric motor and fixedly connected with the active front splitter so that the active front splitter is driven by the driving mechanism to rotate around a spindle fixed to the splitter support between a forwardly extended position and a retreated position. Thus, while ensuring the trafficability of the assembled automobile, it is possible to reduce wind drag so that the expected aerodynamic performance can be achieved.
