  • Publication number: 20200363329
    Abstract: In a cover device for a near-infrared sensor, a plate-shaped cover is arranged in a vehicle such that near-infrared light transmitted from a near-infrared sensor passes through the cover in the thickness direction. A part of the cover in the thickness direction is constituted by a bright decorative layer, which reflects part of incident visible light and allows near-infrared light to pass through. The cover is configured such that the near-infrared light transmittance is higher than the visible light transmittance. The vehicle further includes a light emitting portion, which emits visible light to the cover.

  • Patent number: 10259197
    Abstract: A decorative product includes a transparent member formed from an acrylic resin and a decorative layer arranged on a rear surface of the transparent member. A processed layer is located between the transparent member and the decorative layer. The processed layer is formed by performing a plasma treatment on the rear surface of the transparent member. The decorative layer is a metal layer formed on the processed layer formed by performing sputtering. The processed layer has the thickness L of less than or equal to 260 nm.

  • Patent number: 7540353
    Abstract: A resonator is arranged in an intake system including a pipe section for partitioning an intake port from an intake passage that communicates the intake port with a combustion chamber of an engine, the resonator including: a branch pipe having one end branching to the pipe section and the other end closed so that a silencing chamber is defined therein; and at least one partition wall for partitioning the silencing chamber into at least one pneumatic spring chamber, the partition wall having a natural frequency lower than the frequency of silencing target sound of intake noise propagated from the intake passage.
