Title (EN) TOUCH-SENSITIVE ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED AUTOMOTIVE DOOR OPENER
(FR) OUVREUR DE PORTE ELECTRONIQUE A EFFLEUREMENT
Abstract:
(EN) An electronically controlled door opener (102) has a touch sensitive sensor (106) that is located on an automobile (100) and upon being touched by a person outputs a signal to a control circuit (112) which causes a door actuator (114) to activate and move a door latch (118) which opens a door. Optionally, the electronically controlled door opener can incorporate another touch sensitive sensor which is located on the automobile and upon being rained-on prevents the first touch sensitive sensor from having a false trigger and inadvertently opening the door .
(FR) L'invention porte sur un ouvreur de porte à commande électronique comportant un détecteur à effleurement situé dans une automobile et qui effleuré émet un signal vers un circuit de commande amenant un vérin à activer et déplacer une serrure ouvrant une porte. Ledit ouvreur de porte peut facultativement comporter un deuxième détecteur à effleurement situé dans une automobile et qui lorsqu'il reçoit de la pluie empêche une fausse activation du premier détecteur et l'ouverture inopinée de la porte.
