Automobiles Ettore Bugatti was a French car manufacturer of high-performance automobiles, founded in 1909 in the then German city of Molsheim, Alsace by Italian-born Ettore Bugatti. Bugatti cars were known for their design beauty and for their many race victories. Famous Bugattis include the Type 35 Grand Prix cars, the Type 41 "Royale", the Type 57 "Atlantic" and the Type 55 sports car.The death of Ettore Bugatti in 1947 proved to be the end for the marque, and the death of his son Jean Bugatti in 1939 ensured there was not a successor to lead the factory. No more than about 8000 cars were made. The company struggled financially, and released one last model in the 1950s, before eventually being purchased for its airplane parts business in the 1960s. In the 1990s, an Italian entrepreneur revived it as a builder of limited production exclusive sports cars. Today, the name is owned by German automobile manufacturing group Volkswagen. Wikipedia.

The invention relates to an aircraft (5) comprising: a structure (6); a landing gear (1) mounted on the structure (6) of the aircraft; and at least one obstacle detector (2). The aircraft (5) is characterised in that the obstacle detector (2) is secured to an arm (3), said arm (3) being mounted on the structure (6) such that it can move between a rest position in which the arm (3) is retracted and a detection position in which the arm (3) is deployed such that the obstacle detector (2) extends close to a lower portion of the landing gear (1) at a distance from the structure (6) of the aircraft (5).

An electric kettle comprising a container body comprising electric heating elements adapted to heat water contained in the container body, and comprising a base, configured to support the container body and to supply electric power at least to such electric heating elements when the container body is supported by the base; the container body comprises a longitudinal extension axis and is able to rotate, about the longitudinal extension axis, with respect to the base; the electric kettle further comprises means for detecting the angular movement of the container body with respect to the base, where the extent of the angular movement detected by the means for detecting angular movement determines the degree of activation of the electric heating elements necessary in order to bring the water to a desired temperature.


A honing tool (1) for honing a cylindrical external surface (2) of a rod (3). The tool comprises a plurality of honing inserts (4) adapted to hone a metal; and a support (5) for the honing inserts. The inserts (4) are carried by the support (5) and define a passage (6) around which the inserts (4) are to be found and in which the cylindrical external surface (2) of the rod (3) is insertable. The tool (1) includes a plurality of sliding skids (7) carried by the support (5), the sliding skids (7) and the honing inserts (4) being arranged to be capable of coming simultaneously into contact against the cylindrical external surface (2) of the rod (3) when the rod is placed inside said passage (6) and so as to be able to center the cylindrical external surface (2) inside said passage (6).

Control system (1) comprising a control rod (5) extending between a first zone (2) situated in a hydraulic chamber delimited by a chamber wall (3) and a second zone (4) situated outside the hydraulic chamber. The control system (1) further comprising a seal (6) arranged around and against this control rod (5) to oppose the passage of fluid between the first and second zones (2, 4). The system further comprises a guide piece (7) assembled removably with respect to the chamber wall (3), the seal (6) is assembled inside the guide piece (7) so as to allow relative movement of the rod (5) with respect to the guide piece (7) while at the same time achieving sealing between the first and second zones (2, 4).


A sensor (1) comprising: The housing (2) includes a second opening (10) extending between the internal volume (3) and a second external zone (11); and

A method of applying rotary drive by friction to an aircraft wheel that is provided with a drive track and that is mounted to rotate about an axis of rotation (X) on an axle carried by a low portion of aircraft landing gear by means of at least one friction roller (21) driven by a drive actuator (11) and associated with an actuator (23A, 23B, 30) for moving the roller between a disengaged position in which the roller is spaced apart from the drive track of the wheel and an engaged position in which the roller is kept pressed against the drive track. The method includes the step of controlling the force delivered by the actuator while they are holding the roller in the engaged position.


An aircraft undercarriage comprising a telescopic linear rod (0, 0, 0) comprising first and second sliding rod portions. The undercarriage further comprises:
