  • Publication number: 20220282533
    Abstract: A handle assembly for a motor vehicle has a support housing, a grip mounted on the support housing and movable between a retracted and extended position, a drive element movable along a main extension path, and a main extension lever which is movement-coupled to the drive element and pushes the grip into the extended position during a drive movement of the drive element along the main extension path. The drive element executes a drive movement divided into the main extension path and a pre-extension path preceding the main extension path. The drive element, during its drive movement along the pre-extension path, is movement-decoupled from the main extension lever, and a pre-extension lever is mounted rotatably on the support housing and pushes the grip towards the extended position during the drive movement of the drive element along the pre-extension path.

  • Patent number: 11066857
    Abstract: A motor vehicle actuation device includes a functional element supported on a carrier housing for rotation about a rotational axis and movement between a standby position and an operating position, a drive device disposed on the carrier housing, and a control element in a drive connection with the drive device, which is designed to move the functional element from the standby position into the operating position when the drive device is activated. The control element is moved from a home position into a final actuation position via an initial actuation position when the drive device is activated. The control element forces the functional element from the standby position into the operating position when it moves from the home position into the initial actuation position. The control element retains the functional element in the operating position when it moves from the initial actuation position into the final actuation position.

  • Patent number: 10744037
    Abstract: A polarization beam splitter selectively decouples detection light onto a detector such that it has a polarization direction that differs from the emitted illumination light. This enables the detection of the light scattered back in the eye lens at a high level of accuracy, since stray light from reflections at optical components of the light path is suppressed. In the generating of photo disruptions or other incisions, the ray exposure of the retina may be reduced in that the incisions being furthest away from the laser are induced first such that laminar gas inclusions with an existence duration time of at least 5 seconds result. In this manner the laser radiation propagated in the direction of the retina in further incisions are scattered and partially reflected such that the influence impinging upon the retina is reduced.
