Abstract

A vehicle's rear-view mirror has a broad outer section (2) which provides coverage of the usual field behind. A narrower inner section (3) does not cover this field, but is aligned upon the blind spot otherwise encountered around the vehicle's quarter. Both sections are carried on a common support (7), but can be individually orientated by manual or power control from inside the vehicle. A driver thus receives a comprehensive presentation of traffic location behind him, including those units in course of overtaking. ADVANTAGE - Two-section individually-controllable mirror concept solves basic blind spot problem encountered in most vehicles and provides driver with comprehensive view of activity behind him.

Description

La présente invention concerne un dispositif relatif à un "RFTRC -VISEUR A DOUBLE FOYER ",composé d'un miroir en deux parties:ces deux par -ties séparées,ayant une orientation diffrente,permettent ainsi d'obtenir un champ de vision différent et double,complémentaire,supprimant ainsi "l'angle mort" existant avec un rétroviseur normal. The present invention relates to a device relating to a "RFTRC -VISEUR HEARTH DOUBLE", consisting of a mirror in two parts, these two in separate -ties having a diffrente orientation, and allow to obtain a different field of view and double, complementary, thus eliminating the "dead angle" existing with a normal mirror.

Ces deux miroirs sont juxtaposés et incorporés dans un "bloc" "ré -troviseur",mais peuvent avoir une position adaptée soit par u déplacement latéral ou vertical,manuel ou électrique au noyen d'un moteur électrique. Both mirrors are juxtaposed and incorporated into a "block" "re -troviseur", but may have a suitable position by either lateral or vertical displacement u, manual or electric noyen to an electric motor.

La forme et la taille du rétroviseur et des miroirs seront ariables et adaptées aux besoins. The shape and size of the mirror and mirrors ariables be adapted to the needs.

Le dispositif comporte un grand miroir (I) ayant un cham@ de vision plus grand et plus large situé sur la partie gauche (5) et d'un miroir petit (2) couvrant le secteur de l'ancienne "zône morte" (65. The device has a large mirror (I) having a @ cham bigger and broader view on the left side (5) and a small mirror (2) covering the area of ​​the former "dead zone" (65 .

Le dispositif peut se présenter par la juxtaposition de 2 miroirs (2) et (3) séparés et orientables séparément. The device may be provided by the juxtaposition of two mirrors (2) and (3) separate and separately adjusted.

La figure 2 reprnsente le dispositf. Figure 2 reprnsente the dispositf.
