  • Publication number: 20190126834
    Abstract: The invention relates to an actuatable compact vehicle step with first and second step portions that bifurcate from a single axis when moving from nested to extended positions to provide two or more tiered steps, the second step in a position substantially below the first step when deployed. In various embodiments, step portions travel on curved tracks from the nested position to allow them to be both well-concealed when nested and optimally extended when deployed.

  • Publication number: 20190039491
    Abstract: A vehicle headrest includes a carriage with support rods, an outer headrest connected to the carriage, a vertical locking arrangement with a locking element having a locked state and a released state relative to a support rod locking interface. Release levers, accessible from respective sides, move essentially along a vehicle direction of travel. Release carriers, moveably mounted to the carriage, moves essentially along a vehicle inboard/outboard direction and moves the locking element into the released state. Each release linkage activates the movement of the release carrier. The headrest also includes a forward and rearward locking arrangement for movement of the outer headrest relative to the carriage with support rods with at least some forward and/or rearward movement component. The movement arrangement, for movement of the outer headrest relative to the carriage, does not interrupt the release linkage connection for activating the movement of the release carrier.

  • Publication number: 20180321426
    Abstract: An apparatus and system that uses lenses in front of a display screen to correct the vision of a user in near-eye display devices. The lenses replace the fixed lenses of typical near-eye display devices. The lenses have a wide range of adjustability such that users that require corrective eyeglass lenses or contacts can bring the displayed image into proper focus. This allows a user to experience near-eye display devices without the need for additional corrective lenses.

  • Patent number: 10059268
    Abstract: A drive system for an automatic step including an actuator for moving an automatic step, a crank arm pivotally coupled to the actuator and pivotable about a central shaft, and a first link pivotally coupled to the crank arm, the first link having first and second ends. The linkage comprises one or more force mitigation mechanisms capable of reducing forces eccentric to the actuator. A first force mitigation mechanism engages when the step is deployed or nearly deployed by aligning the central shaft with the first and second ends of the first link along a first axis to generally place eccentric forces originating from the step against the central shaft of the crank arm instead of directly engaging the actuator.

  • Patent number: 10007115
    Abstract: Fixed position optical devices for displaying augmented reality images are provided herein. In one embodiment an optical device includes a AIIE having a waveguide that reflects a computer generated image along a central viewing axis, the computer generated image being received from an image generator optically coupled to the waveguide, and a fixed lens assembly for coupling a background image with the computer generated image to create the augmented reality display, the fixed lens assembly including a proximal lens disposed on one side of the waveguide, the proximal lens being fixedly spaced apart from the waveguide at a first distance, and a distal lens disposed on an opposing side of the AIIE from the one side, the distal lens being fixedly spaced apart from the waveguide at a second distance.

  • Publication number: 20180009385
    Abstract: This invention relates to a drive system for an automatic step. Some embodiments include a rotary actuator for moving an automatic step, a crank arm pivotally coupled to the actuator and pivotable about a central shaft, and a first link pivotally coupled to the crank arm, the first link having first and second ends. The system has one or more force mitigation mechanisms capable of reducing forces eccentric with respect to the actuator. A first force mitigation mechanism engages when the step is deployed or nearly deployed by aligning the central shaft with the first and second ends of the first link along a first axis to generally place eccentric forces originating from the step against the central shaft of the crank arm instead of directly engaging the actuator. A second force mitigation mechanism allows the crank arm to yield without forcing the actuator by using a clutch adjacent to the central shaft.

  • Patent number: 9771024
    Abstract: Rocker guards with automatic step are disclosed that provide robust protection from damage due to rock obstacles to rocker panels and also provide an automatic step to facilitate easy entry and exit from a lifted vehicle. Some embodiments of a rocker guard with automatic step for a vehicle (rocker) can include a body formed to protect rocker panels of a vehicle without damaging the rocker or a step located within the body when the step is in a retracted position, mounts attached to the body for attaching to a vehicle, and an actuator coupled to the step and the body, the actuator being configured to automatically lower the step out of the body to an extended position and retract the step to the retracted position. One embodiment of the invention has a body with an interior volume operable to receive a cartridge with an actuator for moving the automatic step and one or more support legs for extending the automatic step away from the body when the automatic step is coupled to the one or more support legs.
