  • Publication number: 20240174166
    Abstract: A headlight device for vehicle includes: a first light emission unit that illuminates a prescribed first light distribution area with light in a first illumination pattern in which bright areas and dark areas are alternately repeated; and a second light emission unit that illuminates a second light distribution area with light in a second illumination pattern in which the entire illuminated area is a bright area, wherein the first light distribution area has a portion that is beside the second light distribution area and does not overlap with the second light distribution area. In one aspect, the first illumination pattern is a grid pattern in which the bright areas in a grid shape are formed in the dark areas. In another aspect, the first illumination pattern is a stripe pattern in which the bright areas a1 and the dark areas are arranged in parallel.

  • Publication number: 20240083344
    Abstract: A vehicle lighting device is provided which causes a phenomenon whereby bright areas of an irradiation pattern seem to flow on the roadside of the road, and can give a psychological effect prompting a change in vehicle speed to drivers. A vehicle lighting device includes: a pattern irradiation part which irradiates an irradiation region on a side of a travel path of one's own vehicle by a bright/dark mixed irradiation pattern in which bright regions and dark regions are alternately repeated; a situation recognition device which recognizes a situation prompting a deceleration action or acceleration action to a driver of one's own vehicle, and obtains an output corresponding to the recognition; and a controller which controls the pattern irradiation part so that bright regions and dark regions of the pattern irradiation light move in a front/rear direction of the vehicle, based on the output of the situation recognition device.

  • Publication number: 20240083348
    Abstract: A vehicle lighting device is provided which evokes caution of the approach of a vehicle at an early stage on the side of pedestrians irrespective of being day or night. A vehicle lighting device includes: a pattern irradiation part which irradiates irradiation light on a lateral irradiation region on a side of a travel path of one's own vehicle in a bright/dark mixed irradiation pattern in which bright regions and dark regions are alternately repeated; a situation recognition device which obtains an output corresponding to a situation of brightness outside of one's own vehicle; and a controller which, when the output of the situation recognition device corresponds to a first situation which is at least a predetermined specific brightness, controls the pattern irradiation part so as to be a first lighting mode which is not turned off.

  • Patent number: 11919438
    Abstract: A vehicle headlight device capable of improving overlooking of pedestrians by a driver. The device includes: a left-side photoirradiator (left-side pattern irradiation lamp) which irradiates light on a left-side light distribution region (irradiation pattern light distribution region) on a left side of a travel roadway of a vehicle in an irradiation pattern in which a bright region a1 and a dark region are alternately repeated; and a right-side photoirradiator (right-side pattern irradiation lamp) which irradiates light on a right-side light distribution region (irradiation pattern light distribution region) on a right side of a travel roadway of the vehicle in an irradiation pattern in which a bright region a1 and a dark region are alternately repeated. In this embodiment, the left-side photoirradiator (left-side pattern irradiation lamp) is illuminated during left turn of the vehicle, and the right-side photoirradiator (right-side pattern irradiation lamp) is illuminated during right turn of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10255941
    Abstract: A reading method for reading contents information with a laser from an optical disc including a plurality of recording layers includes positioning a focus position of the laser at a first recording layer and reading a first part of the contents information recorded in the first recording layer. If a first link information recorded in the first recording layer is detected, judging whether a first condition is fulfilled or not. If the first condition is fulfilled, positioning the focus position of the laser at a second recording layer and reading a first link destination information recorded in the second recording layer. If the first condition is not fulfilled, reading a second part of the contents information recorded in the first recording layer.

  • Patent number: 9928868
    Abstract: An optical disc including at least three layers of recording layers that each record information in an information track. The recording layer includes: an inner circumferential side region positioned on the inner circumferential side; a data region which is positioned to the outer circumferential side of the inner circumferential side region and records content information; and an outer circumferential side region positioned to the outer circumferential side of the data region. The content information is recorded in the data region of the three or more layers, and a point on an upper layer and a point on a lower layer one layer below the upper layer at which playback switches from content information of the upper layer being played back in an inner circumferential direction to content information of the lower layer, are set to be more to the outside than an innermost circumferential position of the data region.
