Description

  • The invention relates to a motor vehicle with a locking system.
  • Ambient lighting systems are known from the prior art which project a light distribution, for example in the form of a carpet of light, next to the vehicle. Such ambient lighting is for example in the publication DE 10 2007 050 830 A1 disclosed.
  • Next is from the publication DE 10 2016 202 752 A1 an ambient lighting device integrated in the door handles of a motor vehicle is known, which is activated when a motor vehicle is unlocked. In addition, it is known to project a logo by means of a projection module in the exterior mirror of a vehicle door onto the floor next to this vehicle door.
  • From the publication DE 10 2015 220 911 A1 a multi-array projection module is also known, which comprises an illuminant with a number of light sources and an array of projection optics, a respective projection optic comprising an object structure and an associated projection lens, so that when the array is illuminated with the illuminant, the object structures are illuminated by the associated projection lenses are projected onto the floor. The array of projection optics comprises a plurality of sub-arrays which can be illuminated separately with at least one light source of the illuminant assigned to the respective sub-array. Furthermore, the array has at least two different types of sub-arrays, which generate different projections on the floor when illuminated with the at least one assigned light source.
  • The object of the invention is to conveniently signal the locking state to a user of a motor vehicle.
  • This object is achieved by the motor vehicle according to claim 1. Further developments of the invention are defined in the dependent claims.
  • The motor vehicle according to the invention, which is in particular a car, comprises a locking system, in particular a central locking system, for locking one or more doors of the motor vehicle. This locking system can also be set up to lock further closable openings, in particular a bonnet, a luggage compartment and / or a fuel filler cap.
  • Furthermore, the motor vehicle according to the invention comprises a control device which is designed such that it can detect a locking state of the locking system. In the locked state, the locking system locks one or more doors of the motor vehicle in such a way that the doors can no longer be opened. The control unit can also trigger events that are triggered in particular by a user in the vicinity of the motor vehicle, such as detect the actuation of an identification transmitter, in particular a radio key, for locking or unlocking the locking system of the motor vehicle or its doors.
  • Furthermore, the motor vehicle according to the invention comprises a first projection module which comprises at least one projection optics which, when the projection module is switched on, projects a projection onto the floor adjacent to and in particular next to the vehicle door with the light from at least one light source which belongs to the projection module. The projection represents the current locking state of the locking system and takes place at least partially next to the motor vehicle on a floor on which the motor vehicle is located.
  • The projection can take place in response to a detected event, in particular the actuation of a mobile identification transmitter, in particular a radio key, by the user of the motor vehicle, which is triggered in the surroundings of the motor vehicle. Likewise, the projection can take place by falling below a predefined distance between the motor vehicle and the identification transmitter. After a predefined time, if a predefined distance between the motor vehicle and the identification transmitter has been exceeded and / or in response to a detected event, in particular the swinging open of a vehicle door, the projection can be ended.
  • The invention has the advantage that the current locking state is visualized in an easily recognizable manner for the user of the motor vehicle. In order to inform the user of the locked state, this is projected onto the floor next to the motor vehicle by means of a corresponding projection. In order to ascertain the locking condition, the user does not have to reactivate the radio key in order to receive visual or acoustic feedback and / or does not have to approach the vehicle to attempt to open the vehicle door, luggage compartment, bonnet and manually / or the tank cap.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the projection comprises a pictogram. The term The pictogram is to be understood broadly here and below and, in addition to pictorial or symbolic representations, can also consist of text or comprise relevant text. The pictogram can be displayed in one or more colors.
  • In a further preferred embodiment, the pictogram comprises a particularly stylized representation of a key symbol and / or a lock symbol. The projected pictogram is predefined and / or can be selected or adapted by the user.
  • In a further embodiment, the projection module comprises a multi-array projection module, as is made up in particular of paragraphs [0007], [0008] and [0060] 5 the patent application filed by the Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft on October 27, 2015 with the official file number at the DPMA under the title "Motor Vehicle" DE 10 2015 220 911 A1 is known. The pictogram to be projected can be generated by using several projection optics.
  • In a further embodiment, the first projection module is in particular in the outer skin of a vehicle door, e.g. arranged in a door handle or in an outside mirror and can thus be pivoted together with the vehicle door. In the locked state, the locking system locks one or more doors of the motor vehicle in such a way that the doors can no longer be opened. Alternatively, the first projection module can be arranged in an immovable body part adjacent to a pivotable vehicle door of the motor vehicle and in particular in a sill of the vehicle.
  • In a further embodiment, the motor vehicle comprises at least one first projection module on each side of the vehicle. In this way it can be ensured that the user of the motor vehicle, regardless of his location in the surroundings of the motor vehicle, can recognize the projection and that the view of the projection is not covered by the vehicle itself. The first projection module can also be set up in such a way that two projections can be generated independently of one another, at a predefined distance and in each case adjacent to the respective vehicle doors. Likewise, a projection module can be arranged in the outer skin of the motor vehicle for each opening that can be locked with the locking system. In this way, the individual locking status for each lockable opening can be visualized by a projection.
  • In a further embodiment, a position of an identification transmitter, in particular a radio key, which a user of the motor vehicle carries with him, can be determined by the control device. The projection is then only generated by the first projection module, which is arranged on the vehicle side that is assigned to the determined position.
  • In a further embodiment, the motor vehicle further comprises an ambient light sensor. This allows the projection module to be controlled as a function of the ambient light of the motor vehicle. It is thus possible to adjust the brightness or the intensity of the projection depending on the ambient light, in order to ensure that the projection is optimally recognizable. The ambient light sensor also enables the color of the projection to be adapted to the lighting conditions of the vehicle's surroundings. In this way, the projection can be adjusted in response to a colored ambient light, so that the colored representation of the projection is not falsified by the colored ambient light, but can be easily recognized by the user.
  • In a further embodiment, the control device is further configured to determine the open position of a vehicle door. The opening position of a vehicle door is understood to mean the position of the door leaf. If the first projection module is arranged, for example, in a door handle or in an outside mirror of a vehicle door and this vehicle door is opened, the projection is pivoted together with the vehicle door. In this way, the projection can be covered by the opened vehicle door and can no longer be recognized by the user. As a remedy, the projection can be carried out by a second projection module in response to the detection of an open vehicle door. The second projection module is arranged in such a way that a projection onto the floor adjacent to and in particular next to the vehicle door can take place even when the vehicle door is open. The second projection module can in particular be arranged in a door trim, on the interior trim of the vehicle door, on a door pocket, in the lower edge of a vehicle door or in a sill of the vehicle.
  • In a further preferred embodiment, a first projection represents a first locking state and a second projection a second locking state. In particular, the locked state "locked" can be represented by a lock symbol with a stylized representation of a padlock in the closed state and the locked state "unlocked" by a lock symbol with a stylized representation of a padlock in the open state.
  • In a further embodiment, a first color is assigned to the first projection and a second color to the second projection. It is also possible to represent the locked states "locked" and "opened" by different colored projections of the same pictogram or different pictograms.
