Title (EN) GYROSCOPICALLY-RESPONSIVE POWER ASSITED MOMENT ARM FOR LOAD CARRYING DEVICES INCLUDING PIVOTAL LOAD CARRYING DEVICES
(FR) BRAS DE LEVIER ASSISTÉ EN PUISSANCE SENSIBLE AU MOUVEMENT GYROSCOPIQUE POUR DES DISPOSITIFS DE SUPPORT DE CHARGE COMPRENANT DES DISPOSITIFS DE SUPPORT DE CHARGE PIVOTANTS
Abstract:
(EN) A gyroscopically-responsive power assisted moment arm is disclosed for use in connection with vehicles such as load carrying devices. A moment arm extends to a pivot point such that when a longitudinal force is applied at the moment arm, a sensor senses such force and outputs an energizing signal to a motor to drive a wheel. If a rotational or vertical force is applied to the moment arm, the motor need not be driven. According to the invention, therefore, a power assist can be provided to a user to drive a wheel in a desired direction of transport while not causing drive during tipping or unloading of the load carrying portion of the vehicle. Such an apparatus can be advantageously applied to a power assisted wheelbarrow, as one exemplary application.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un bras de levier assisté en puissance sensible au mouvement gyroscopique, destiné à être utilisé avec des véhicules tels que des dispositifs de support de charge. Un bras de levier s'étend jusqu'à un point de pivot de telle sorte que lorsqu'une force longitudinale est appliquée sur le bras de moment, un capteur détecte cette force et transmet un signal d'excitation à un moteur pour entraîner une roue. Si un effort vertical ou de rotation est appliqué au bras de levier, le moteur n'a pas besoin d'être excité. Selon l'invention, une assistance peut être fournie à un utilisateur pour entraîner une roue dans une direction de transport voulue sans pour autant susciter d'entraînement pendant le basculement ou le déchargement de la partie de support de charge du véhicule. Un tel appareil peut être avantageusement appliqué, par exemple, à une brouette assistée en puissance.
