Abstract

Views to the rear and along both sides of the vehicle are presented by the objective lenses integrated with the bodywork and optically coupled by respective fibre bundles to a panoramic display in front of the driver. The display may take the form of a narrow horizontal strip either on or above the instrument panel. Safety may be enhanced by interrupted all-round vision without the driver's being required to turn his or her head continually. ADVANTAGE - Blind spots are eliminated without recourse to external mirrors which add to air resistance.

Description

Trotzdem man die Fahrzeugtechnik auf hohem Standard wähnt, ist das Problem der seitlichen Außenspiegel eigentlich ungelöst. Nevertheless, one imagines vehicle technology to a high standard, the problem of the side mirrors is actually solved. Der "tote Winkel" existiert, auch verschiedene Zusatzspiegel bilden nur eine Teillösung. The "blind spot" exists, and various additional mirrors form only a partial solution.

Bleibt aber immer noch das Problem der Extremität. but still remains the problem of limb. Nachdem die Antennen schon integriert werden können, blieb nur mehr die Lösung, die mehr oder weniger abstehenden Seitenspiegel als Stilelemente zu kaschieren. After the antennas can be built in, remained only the solution to conceal the more or less protruding side mirror as styles. Der erhöhte Luftwiderstand läßt sich aber nicht wegdiskutieren. but the increased air resistance can not be argued away.

Diese Anmeldung soll eine Lösung aufzeigen, die dem heutigen Stand der Technik entspricht. This application is intended to demonstrate a solution that meets today's state of the art.

Optische Fasern sind immer mehr in den Vordergrund gerückt und werden immer vielfältiger eingesetzt. Optical fibers are increasingly brought to the fore and are always used diverse. Es stellt kein technisches Problem dar, zum Beispiel am seitlichen Dachrand des Autos optische "Augen" (Objektive) in die Karosserie zu integrieren. It is not a technical problem to integrate, for example, on the lateral edge of the roof of the car optical "eye" (lenses) in the body. Eventuell 2 pro Seite um den "toten Winkel" auszuschalten. may disable 2 per side around the "dead angle". Das Bild wird mittels der bereits erwähnten optischen Fasern zur "Wiedergabestelle" geleitet. The image is passed by means of the already mentioned optical fibers to "playback point". Hier wird das Bild optisch aufbereitet (z. B. über ein Linsensystem) und in einem schmalen Band in oder über der Instrumentierung dem Fahrer präsentiert. Here, the image optically processed (eg., Via a lens system) and in a narrow band at or above the instrumentation is presented to the driver. Von da ist es nicht weit bis zu dem Schritt, auch den Rückspiegel durch die Faseroptik zu ersetzen und so auf dem "Sichtband" eine Panoramasicht, des hinter dem Sehwinkel des Fahrers liegenden Bereichs zu erzeugen. From there it is not far to the step to replace the rear view mirror through the optical fiber and so as to produce on the "view volume" a panoramic view of the angle of view behind the driver's area. So ist es möglich, eine sichere, ohne Rücksicht auf die Bauweise des Fahrzeugs, ununterbrochene "Rundumsicht" zu erstellen und damit wesentlich zur Sicherheit beizutragen. So it is possible to secure, to create without regard to the structure of the vehicle, continuous "round visibility" and thus significantly contribute to the security. Ein weiterer Pluspunkt wäre, daß das ständige Drehen des Kopfes entfallen kann und das Augenmerk auf die Fahrbahn gerichtet bleibt. Another advantage would be that the constant turning of the head can be omitted and the attention remains focused on the road.
