Abstract

The mirror according to the invention is in principle a combination of a planar mirror, or a mirror which is almost planar, with a mirror sector which takes the form of vertical strips, in the case of which the individual mirror strips are rotated about their vertical axis in such a way that they provide a view of the "blind" angle. The strip mirror causes the mirror image to appear to be composed of a multiplicity of pieces. This effect is desired, because it very clearly distinguishes the blind angle image from the actual rear view mirror image. The combined mirror can be made of different materials. For purely practical reasons, i.e. to prevent the occurrence of dirt-collecting points, it is deformed in the above way and provided with a mirror coating when transparent materials are on the back. In the case of front deformation of the mirror support it would be expedient, but not necessary according to the invention, to cover the rear view mirror with a transparent plate.

Description

Gegenstand der Erfindung ist ein Rückspiegel zur Verwendung im Straßenverkehr, der Einblick in den sogen. The invention relates to a rearview mirror for use in road traffic, the insight into the absorbed. "toten Winkel" gibt. are "blind spot".

In verschiedenen Patentschriften werden Lösungen vorgeschlagen, die dies ermöglichen. In several patents propose solutions that make this possible. Sie scheitern in der Praxis aber daran, daß sie durch Form oder aufwendige Herstellungsverfahren von der Industrie nicht akzeptiert werden, oder daß sie durch ihre Wirkungsweise gesetztlichen Auflagen nicht genügen. They fail in practice because they are not accepted by the form or complex manufacturing processes of the industry, or that they are not enough by their mode of action set union requirements.

Der erfindungsgemäße Rückspiegel ist serienmäßig und kostengünstig herstellbar und erfüllt die gesetzlichen Auflagen. The rear view mirror according to the invention is standard and inexpensive to produce and met the legal requirements.

Der Einblick in den "toten Winkel" wird dadurch erreicht, daß der notwendige, vom eigentlichen Rückspiegel abgewinkelte Einblickspiegel in gerade und senkrecht verlaufende Streifen zerlegt wird ( Abb. 2) und diese Streifen mit ihren Schneidkanten so in 2 Ebenen gelegt werden, daß ihre Spiegelflächen in Parallelen zueinander liegen ( Abb. 3). The insight into the "dead angle" is achieved that the necessary angled from the actual rear-view mirror insight mirror is decomposed into even and extending perpendicular stripes (Fig. 2) and these strips are with their cutting edges so placed in 2 planes that their mirror surfaces in parallel to each other are (Fig. 3).

(Die Winkelstellung der Streifenspiegel zum Rückspiegelteil A ist nicht unbedingt für alle Rückspiegel gleich. (The angular position of the strip mirror for rear-view mirror, Part A, is not necessarily the same for all rear-view mirror.

Sie steht in Abhängigkeit von der Sitzposition des Fahrers zur Anordnung des Rückspiegels am Fahrzeug und/oder zum Brechungsindex des verwendeten Werkstoffes.) It is a function of the seat position of the driver to the assembly of the rearview mirror to the vehicle and / or to the refractive index of the material used.)

Durch die Schaffung dieses Streifenspiegels B wird erreicht, daß der Einblick in den "toten Winkel" im gleichen Maße erfolgt, wie beim unzerschnittenen Spiegel, gleichzeitig aber dieser Teil des Rückspiegels durch die wahrnehmbaren senkrechten "Schnittkanten" ganz eindeutig als "toter Winkel Spiegel" erkennbar ist und die gesetzlichen Vorschriften erfüllt. By creating this strip mirror B is achieved in that the view into the "dead angle" in the same measure is carried out, as in the unfragmented mirror, but at the same time, this part of the rearview mirror is clearly recognizable by the perceivable vertical "cutting edge" as the "dead angle mirror" and meets the legal requirements.

Erfindungsgemäß ist die Ausbildung der mit einer Spiegelschicht versehenen "Rückseite" des Rückspiegels wesentlich. According to the invention the formation of the "back side" is provided with a mirror coating of the mirror is essential. Deswegen kann die "Frontseite" des Rückspiegels mit seinem Teil B genauso plan oder glatt wie der Teil A des Rückspiegels - und zwar ohne optisch oder physisch spürbaren Unterschied - beschaffen sein. Therefore, the "front side" of the rear-view mirror can be smooth as the part A of the rearview mirror as well plan with its Part B or - be designed - and without physically or optically noticeable difference.

Bei der fabrikationsmäßigen Herstellung wird der Streifenspiegel B natürlich zweckmäßigerweise durch eine Form und/oder durch einen Schleifvorgang hergestellt. In the manufacture moderate production of the strip mirror B is, of course, conveniently produced by a mold and / or by a grinding operation.
