The patent application (Publication Number: US20240035317A1) describes a lid opening/closing structure with unique features. The structure includes a lid that can be opened and closed with two different power mechanisms - a first power mechanism for regular operation and a second power mechanism for emergency situations. The second power mechanism is engaged only when an external force is applied, ensuring the lid can be operated manually when needed.

Furthermore, the structure incorporates an electric actuator for the first power mechanism and an emergency operation member for the second power mechanism. These components work together through a transmission member to ensure smooth operation of the lid. The design allows for seamless transition between the two power mechanisms, providing flexibility and reliability in opening and closing the lid. Additionally, the integration of the rotation shaft, electric actuator, and transmission member enhances the overall efficiency of the structure. Overall, the patent application showcases an innovative lid opening/closing structure that prioritizes safety and functionality in various operating conditions.
