Title: SLIDING STEP ASSEMBLY FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE OR FOR A RAIL VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a sliding step assembly (7) for a vehicle or a rail vehicle (1) for bridging a gap (6) between the vehicle or rail vehicle (1) and a platform (5) or the like, with a sliding step cassette (10), which is fastenable to a body of the vehicle or rail vehicle (1) and has a cassette opening (14), a sliding step (3) which is guided movably on the sliding step cassette (10) along a sliding-step movement path between a retracted position and at least one extended end position, at least one closure element which is mounted on the sliding step (3) and closes the cassette opening (14) in the retracted position of the sliding step (3), an obstacle-detection device (8) which has at least one tactile element and is designed in such a manner that, when the tactile element (20) touches an obstacle (5) during the extension movement of the sliding step (3) from the retracted position into the at least one extended end position, a critical position of the sliding step (3) with respect to the obstacle (5) is identified and, in the event of such an identification, a detection signal is generated. The invention is characterized in that the closure element and the tactile element are formed together by a flap (20) which is guided movably by means of a guide device (22).
