  • Publication number: 20200374428
    Abstract: An image sensor includes a pixel array including multiple pixels. A lens is provided on an optical path of incident light to the image sensor. An actuator includes a coil, and supports positioning of the lens according to a driving signal applied to the coil. A position detection coil is arranged such that it magnetically couples with the coil of the actuator. An actuator driver supplies a pulse-shaped driving signal to the coil of the actuator driver. A position detection circuit generates a position detection signal that indicates the position of the lens based on an induced electromotive force that occurs in the position detection coil according to the driving signal, and feeds back the position detection signal to the actuator driver.

  • Publication number: 20200190848
    Abstract: A door handle projecting/pulling-in mechanism has a spring and an alternating mechanism. The spring urges the door handle such that the door handle is stored within a door main body. The alternating mechanism is set such that a distal end portion of a movable portion faces the door handle, and the movable portion travels reciprocally along a door thickness direction. Against urging force of the spring, the alternating mechanism can switch between a first state, in which the alternating mechanism maintains the door handle at a first position of being even with an outer surface of the door main body, and a second state, in which the alternating mechanism maintains the door handle at a second position at which the door handle can be grasped.
