  • Patent number: 11104298
    Abstract: The invention relates to an assembly module (20) for a motor vehicle (1), comprising an optical sensor system (30) which is suitable a) for monitoring a detection area (21) located outside of the vehicle (1), b) if a user (10) is detected in the detection area (21), for triggering a signal to commence an authentication check between an ID transponder (13) and the motor vehicle (1), c) for monitoring an actuation area (22) which is located outside of the vehicle (1) and which is different from the detection area (21), d) if a user (10) is detected in the actuation area (22), for providing a working signal for the vehicle (1), wherein an emergency actuation means (90) is provided for additionally triggering the working signal, which emergency actuation means is suitable e) for providing a working signal for the vehicle (1) via an activation of the emergency actuation means (90) by a body part (11, 12) of the user (10).

  • Patent number: 9005731
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a composite plate (1) comprising a first cover layer (3), a second cover layer (5), and a core layer (7) arranged between the first and the second cover layers (3, 5) and having a plurality of cells (9) which are at least partially open towards the first cover layer (3) and which are separated from each other by walls as well as a method of draining such a composite plate (1). In order to provide such a composite plate (1) in which improved resistance to ingress of liquid or formation of liquid accumulations is guaranteed in a simple and continual fashion it is proposed that a draining layer (13) is provided in the first cover layer (3), wherein the cells (9) are at least partially covered by the draining layer (13).

  • Patent number: 8714483
    Abstract: A decompression device is provided having a frame element, in which at least one decompression opening is formed, and a cover is fastenable by means of a fastening device to the frame element in order in a first position to close the decompression opening formed in the frame element. The fastening device includes at least one holding clip and at least one receiving device that is complementary to the holding clip. The holding clip and the receiving device complementary to the holding clip are situated in engagement with one another when the cover is situated in its first position and are adapted to move out of engagement when a predetermined differential pressure acts upon the cover in order to enable the cover to move relative to the frame element into a second position, in which the cover releases the decompression opening formed in the frame element.

  • Publication number: 20110100747
    Abstract: A sandwich element for sound-absorbing inner cladding of means of transport, especially aircraft, comprising a three-dimensionally constructed core disposed between two substantially parallel cover layers is provided. Sound transmission passages are incorporated in the core, and/or in at least one cover layer. At least one sound absorption layer is in the area of a cover layer at least in parts. Passages in the cover layers and core provide good sound absorption and heat insulation. The passages allow transmission of sound. The through channels and the preferably inclined installation of the sandwich element allow foreign bodies to be flushed out by, for example, a cleaning liquid or condensation. Possibly sufficient sound absorption can be achieved without the sound absorption layer. Ventilation of the core prevents the long-term presence of condensation, which could cause corrosion and/or rotting. A fire-retardant layer including metal particles may increase fire protection and electromagnetic insulation.

  • Publication number: 20100247848
    Abstract: A sandwich element for a sound-absorbing inner cladding of transport means, such as aircraft fuselage cells, comprising a honeycomb-shaped core structure and cover layers applied to both sides of the core structure. At least one cover layer is constructed as permeable to air at least in sections and a covering is disposed at least in sections on at least one cover layer, wherein a sound absorption layer is disposed at least in sections in the area of at least one cover layer. A plurality of passages in the cover layers allow efficient transmission of the sound impinging on the sandwich element from outside as far as the sound absorption layer of the sandwich element.
