  • Patent number: 10466407
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a combination indicating instrument, and has as its object to devise a hybrid combination display instrument for displaying information in a motor vehicle in a manner so as to provide a homogeneous and smooth transition between an analog display region and a digital display region within the hybrid combination display instrument. Also included for guiding the light generated by the light source, is a “light guiding device”, which has a first surface facing away from the viewer (viewing individual), and a second surface facing toward the viewer.

  • Publication number: 20190094615
    Abstract: This invention relates to a backlight panel for a panel display device, comprising a light pipe, at least one source of illumination and a diffuse reflector. The light pipe has a first boundary surface comprising a first substantially planar surface interrupted by a first pattern of discrete surface relief features for extracting light from the light pipe and for directing said extracted light at the diffuse reflector, and a second boundary surface comprising a second substantially planar surface interrupted by a second pattern of laterally elongate surface relief features, each comprising an inclined surface angled towards the light source for directing light internally reflected from the second boundary surface towards the first boundary surface at a correspondingly lower angle of incidence. The areal density of the first pattern varies across the first side and generally increases along the transmission direction.

  • Patent number: 9581472
    Abstract: A strip lighting device includes a main body having front and rear sides extending along a length of the main body. The front side is disposed towards a viewer of the device and the rear side includes a light scattering layer for scattering light from a source of illumination towards the viewer when the device is illuminated. The main body has a front and rear cladding layer each of which is made of a first light transmissive material. The strip lighting device includes a light pipe made of a second light transmissive material sandwiched between the front and rear cladding layers at interfaces extending along the length of the main body. A rear interface of the light pipe has a plurality of angled portions which allow some light to escape into the rear cladding layer to impinge on the light scattering layer and scatter light towards the viewer.

  • Patent number: 9076610
    Abstract: A rotary knob assembly having a lightpipe affixed to a push button within a rotary knob portion that may be rotatably affixed to a vehicle control panel. The lightpipe engages a halo ring surrounding the push button and is disposed between the push button and the rotary knob portion. The lightpipe has a plurality of concentric circles recessively disposed thereon to provide illumination to the knob assembly specifically, to the halo ring and a graphic display of the push button. The rotary knob assembly has a first light emitting diode in communication with the control panel to provide light to the lightpipe. Light is transmitted and refracted through the lightpipe illuminating the halo ring surrounding the push button as well as distributes light to the recessed portion or gaps between the plurality of concentric circles which allow light to flow directly to the graphic display of the push button.
