  • Patent number: 10919582
    Abstract: An aerodynamic deflector device for a motor vehicle wheel may include a mounting configured to be mounted on a motor vehicle. A deflecting wall may be mounted on the mounting to be movable between a retracted position. In the mounted state, the deflecting wall is raised relative to the mounting, and an extended position in which, in the mounted state, the deflecting wall is lowered relative to the mounting and capable of being placed upstream from the wheel of the vehicle. An actuator may be configured to move the deflecting wall between the retracted and extended positions. The deflecting wall may have, in cross-section, a central part and two side parts flaring out from the central part to obtain a shape which diverges with respect to the direction of the air flow striking said wall. The aerodynamic deflector device may be arranged upstream from a vehicle wheel.
