  • Publication number: 20220289118
    Abstract: Described are supports for holding a portable electronic device. The support includes a body having an upper pivot location and a lower pivot location relative to a passenger seat back, a support structure coupled to the body, and a plurality of projections extending from a surface of the support structure. Each projection is shaped to receive a lower edge of a portable electronic device and secure the portable electronic device to the body when the portable electronic device is received by the plurality of projections.

  • Publication number: 20220177139
    Abstract: Described are passenger seat assemblies having a first seat structure (222) that includes a non-contact sensor or sensors (106a) and a second, movable or deployable passenger seat structure (226) that contains an embedded magnetic element or elements (236a). Each magnetic element interacts with the non-contact sensor such that the embedded magnetic element causes the non-contact sensor (106a) to switch between a first state and the second state, depending on the orientation of the second structure (226) with respect to the first structure (222). The sensor can detect whether the second passenger seat structure is positioned in a stowed configuration or a deployed configuration.

  • Publication number: 20220144437
    Abstract: Described are passenger seat assemblies that include a passenger seat frame (212), a first passenger seat element (224) connected with the passenger seat frame, and a second passenger seat element (226) configured to removably connect with the first passenger seat element. Each of the first and second passenger seat elements includes a respective conductive touch fastener (228, 232) that, together, complete a circuit when the second passenger seat element is connected with the first passenger seat element. The circuit can be used as a sensor to determine whether the first and second passenger seat elements are connected.
