Description

Description: BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a camera mounting structure,
More specifically, the present invention relates to a camera mounting structure for assisting in securing a view ahead of a vehicle. 2. Description of the Related Art When driving a car, a blind spot may be generated around the vehicle. For example, in a sedan type passenger car, it is difficult to directly visually check the surroundings of a front bumper and a rear bumper. Therefore, a system has been developed which assists in securing a front view and a rear view by installing a CCD camera in front of and behind the vehicle and displaying an image of the camera on a screen of a navigation system in the vehicle interior. [0003] Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2001-58543 introduces a camera mounting structure used in this type of system. FIG. 5 shows a cross-sectional view of a camera mounting structure described in the publication. The emblem 100 is disposed substantially at the center of the vehicle rear end in the vehicle width direction. A rear camera 101 is fixed to the back of the emblem 100. A rack 102 stands upright from the back of the emblem 100. The rack 102 extends in an arc shape toward the inside of the vehicle. The upper end of the emblem 100 is pivotally mounted on the vehicle via a swing shaft 103. A case 104 is arranged inside the emblem 100 on the vehicle side. The case 104 has a box shape and has an opening 105 in the direction of the emblem 100.
It has. Above the case 104, the driving device 10
8 are arranged. The drive unit 108 includes a pinion 1
A drive shaft 107 to which reference numeral 06 is fixed is arranged. The teeth of the pinion 106 mesh with the teeth of the rack 102. When using a camera, the rear camera 10
1 is projected from the rear end of the vehicle. That is, the driving device 1
The driving force 08 is transmitted to the rack 102 via the driving shaft 107 and the pinion 106. With this driving force, the rack 102 is pushed to the rear of the vehicle. And
The emblem 100 and the rear camera 101 fixed to the rack 102 also swing toward the rear of the vehicle about the swing shaft 103. Thus, the rear camera 101 is made to protrude from the rear end of the vehicle. [0005] By the way, there is little space restriction at the rear end of the vehicle. Therefore, when capturing an image of the rear of the vehicle as in the camera mounting structure described in the publication, it is easy to arrange the driving device 108 above the case 104. However, the emblem at the front end of the vehicle is often arranged at the center of the front grill or the like. For this reason, when the drive device is arranged above the case, the drive device is exposed from the gap in the front grill and the appearance is poor. In order to hide the driving device, it is necessary to enlarge the emblem. However, when the emblem is enlarged,
The design balance between the emblem and the front grill may be deteriorated. In addition, when the emblem is enlarged, the cooling efficiency deteriorates. According to the camera mounting structure described in the publication, the rear camera 101 is moved by a rack and pinion mechanism. The rack 102 is exposed outside the vehicle when the camera is used. For this reason, dust and dirt may adhere to the teeth of the rack 102 during the exposure.
The attached dust or dust may cause a problem in meshing the teeth of the rack 102 with the teeth of the pinion 106. Accordingly, the camera mounting structure described in the publication has low operational reliability. The camera mounting structure of the present invention has been completed in view of the above problems. Therefore, an object of the present invention is to provide a camera mounting structure having high designability and high operational reliability. [0008] In order to solve the above-mentioned problems, a camera mounting structure of the present invention comprises a camera, a case in which the camera is housed and which has an opening in front of the vehicle, and an upper end of the case. An emblem that is pivotally provided and covers the opening so that it can be opened and closed and to which the camera is fixed, a first arm that is pivotally attached to a drive device whose rear end is located behind the case, and a first arm that is pivoted to the rear end. A second arm portion pivotally provided at a front end, and an arm made of a camera and an emblem that can be pushed out to the front of the vehicle. The second arm portion is rotated forward, and the camera is pushed out of the case and protruded forward from the vehicle. In other words, the camera mounting structure of the present invention is such that the camera for imaging the front of the vehicle is moved by the arm. The arm includes a first arm and a second arm. The rear end of the first arm portion is pivotally connected to a driving device disposed behind the case. A rear end of the second arm is pivotally provided at a front end of the first arm.
The front end of the second arm is fixed to at least one of the camera and the emblem. According to the camera mounting structure of the present invention, the first arm and the second arm are exposed outside the vehicle when the camera is used. However, no gear member is provided on the first arm portion and the second arm portion. Therefore, the first arm portion and the second arm portion are not easily affected by dust. For this reason, the camera mounting structure of the present invention has high operational reliability. According to the camera mounting structure of the present invention,
The drive device is arranged behind the case. Therefore, even when the emblem is arranged at the center of the front grill, the drive device is less likely to be exposed. Therefore, it is excellent in design. The driving device according to the present invention includes a driving force transmitting mechanism such as a gear in addition to a driving source such as a motor. That is, even if a drive source such as a motor is not arranged behind the case, but the drive force transmission mechanism is arranged behind the case, this drive force transmission device corresponds to the drive device in the present invention. That is, a member that transmits the driving force to the camera and is disposed at the rear of the case is included in the driving device according to the present invention. Preferably, in the camera mounting structure of the present invention, the front end of the second arm is fixed substantially perpendicularly to the emblem, and the first arm and the second arm are substantially separated when the camera is used. It is better to arrange them in a straight line. That is, in this configuration, the front end of the second arm portion is fixed substantially perpendicularly to the emblem. When the camera is used, the first arm and the second arm are arranged substantially in series. According to the camera mounting structure described in the publication shown in FIG. 5, when the camera is used, the rear camera 101 is stopped while projecting from the rear end of the vehicle. At this time, the rear camera 101 is connected to the rack 102 and the pinion 1
06. Therefore, the rack 102
Is applied to the pinion 106 by the weight of the rear camera 101 and the emblem 100 during use of the camera. Here, the load is applied to the outer peripheral edge of the pinion 106 where the teeth are formed. A drive shaft 107 is arranged at the center on the inner peripheral side of the pinion 106. Therefore, even if the load applied to the pinion 106 is small, a relatively large rotational load is applied to the drive shaft 107.
The rotational load applied to the drive shaft 107 is
8 may be adversely affected. On the other hand, according to the camera mounting structure of the present configuration, as schematically shown in FIG.
The front end of 2 is fixed substantially perpendicularly to the emblem 204. When the camera is used, the drive shaft 20
0, the first arm unit 201, and the second arm unit 202 are arranged substantially in series as indicated by a dashed line in the figure. Therefore, the load due to the weight of the camera 205 and the emblem 204 is applied to the drive shaft 200 from a direction substantially perpendicular thereto. In other words, the camera 205 and the emblem 2
The load due to its own weight of 04 hardly acts on the rotation direction of the drive shaft 200. Therefore, the rotational load applied to the driving device 203 is small. Therefore, according to the camera mounting structure of this configuration, when the camera is used, the driving device 20
3 is less likely to have an adverse effect. Preferably, the camera mounting structure of the present invention has a configuration in which the camera is fixed with an inclination to the emblem. That is, in this configuration, as schematically shown in FIG. 1, the camera 205 is fixed to the emblem 204 with a certain inclination. According to this configuration, it is possible to capture an image farther forward than when the camera is fixed substantially parallel to the emblem. That is, the imaging range of the camera 205 is expanded. Therefore, the visibility is more excellent. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Hereinafter, an embodiment of a camera mounting structure according to the present invention will be described. First, the configuration of the camera mounting structure of the present embodiment will be described. FIG. 2 shows a front view of the camera mounting structure of the present embodiment.
