Application: Actuator mechanism (Patent ID: US20230383823A1)

The patent filed by Rivian Automotive Inc. describes an actuator system that includes a driver coupled with a motor, a shaft extending through the driver, and an anchor coupled with the shaft. The motor is designed to translate the anchor at one time by moving the shaft through the driver and rotate the anchor at another time by rotating the shaft with the driver, with the second time being different from the first time. The actuator system is further detailed with various configurations and components such as a housing body, engagement elements, springs, and specific movements of the anchor within the system.

The patent also outlines a method for operating the actuator system, involving moving the anchor in different directions at different times based on power from the motor. The method includes translating and rotating the anchor along the housing body of the actuator, as well as engaging with various components such as the driver and engagement elements. Additionally, the patent extends to an electric vehicle application where the actuator is coupled with a vehicle component to facilitate movement from one position to another. The actuator system in the electric vehicle configuration includes specific design elements like a housing body with translational and rotational portions, as well as a pin mechanism for translating and rotating the anchor within the system.
