2019 AUG 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Japan Daily Report -- A patent application by the inventors TAKENAKA, Yuji (Yokkaichi, Mie, Japan); SAKAI, Daisuke (Yokkaichi, Mie, Japan), filed on June 15, 2017, was made available online on July 25, 2019, according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by NewsRx correspondents.

This patent application is assigned to Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. (Osaka, Japan).

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: “There is a conventional system that detects an open/closed state of doors of a vehicle, and notifies an occupant of the result of detection. For example, JP 2002-240625A discloses an automobile door visor, wherein the rear end surface of an eave portion of the automobile door visor is provided with a light-emitting diode, and the automobile door visor informs an occupant, who has got out of the automobile, that a door is improperly closed, or informs a following automobile that a door has opened, by lighting up the light-emitting diode.

“However, the automobile door visor disclosed in JP 2002-240625A is configured to notify an occupant outside the vehicle of an open/closed state of a vehicle door by lighting up the light-emitting diode provided on the rear end surface of the eave portion, and there is a problem in which an occupant inside the vehicle cannot see the light-emitting diode, and an occupant who has already got into the vehicle cannot confirm an open/closed state of the vehicle door. In addition, there is also a problem in which an occupant who has got out of the vehicle from a seat on the driver’s seat side (the driver’s seat or the seat behind the driver’s seat) cannot see the light-emitting diode provided on the door visor on the side opposite the driver’s seat (the passenger’s seat side), and cannot confirm an open/closed state of a vehicle door on the passenger’s seat side.

“The present disclosure has been made in view of such a situation, and aims to provide a notification apparatus that is capable of notifying an occupant of an open/closed state of a vehicle door, from both the inside and the outside of the vehicle.”

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, NewsRx journalists also obtained the inventors’ summary information for this patent application: “A notification apparatus according to one aspect of the present application is a notification apparatus provided in a vehicle, the notification apparatus including: an interior light configured such that some light emitted therefrom passes through a window of the vehicle; a detection unit that detects an open/closed state of a door of the vehicle; and a control unit that performs lighting control on the interior light such that the interior light emits light in a lighting mode corresponding to a result of detection by the detection unit. The notification apparatus notifies an occupant in and/or out of the vehicle, of the open/closed state of the door, using light emitted from the interior light.

“Advantageous Effects of Disclosure

“According to the present disclosure, it is possible to notify an occupant of an open/closed state of a vehicle door, from both the inside and the outside of the vehicle.”

The claims supplied by the inventors are:

“1. A notification apparatus provided in a vehicle, the notification apparatus comprising: a vehicle interior light configured such that some light emitted therefrom passes through a window of the vehicle from the inside of the vehicle to the outside of the vehicle; a detection unit that detects an open/closed state of a door of the vehicle; and a control unit that performs lighting control on the vehicle interior light such that the vehicle interior light emits light in a lighting mode corresponding to a result of detection by the detection unit, wherein the notification apparatus notifies an occupant in and/or out of the vehicle, of the open/closed state of the door, using light emitted from the interior light.

“2. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the open/closed state of the door detected by the detection unit includes an open state in which the door is open and a closed state in which the door is closed, and the control unit changes the lighting mode of the vehicle interior light depending on whether the detection unit detects the open state or the closed state of the door.

“3. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the open/closed state of the door detected by the detection unit includes an open state in which the door is open, a closed state in which the door is fully closed, and an improperly closed state that is a state between the open state and the closed state, and the control unit changes the lighting mode of the vehicle interior light depending on whether the detection unit detects the open state, the closed state, or the improperly closed state of the door.

“4. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the vehicle interior light is provided for each of a plurality of doors of the vehicle, and the control unit performs lighting control on the vehicle interior lights such that the vehicle interior lights emit light in different lighting modes according to detection results regarding the respective open/closed states of the doors.

“5. The notification apparatus according to claim 1 wherein the vehicle interior light is arranged such that the light emitted therefrom passes through a plurality of windows that face each other in a width direction of the vehicle.

“6. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the vehicle interior light is arranged at the lower end of the inner side of a window opening portion of the door.

“7. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the window is constituted by a light-transmitting member provided with a first light-transmitting region that is provided at the lower end of the window and a second light-transmitting region that has lower transmittance than the first light-transmitting region and is provided above the first light-transmitting region, and the vehicle interior light is arranged so as to face the first light-transmitting region.

“8. The notification apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the lighting mode relates to the color of light, the brightness thereof, and the timing of turning the vehicle interior light ON and OFF.”
