Abstract

PURPOSE: To provide both functions of backward monitor and in-compartment monitor to the on-vehicle monitor.
CONSTITUTION: A changeover control circuit 24, an image processing unit 25 and a changeover switch 26 are used to direct a photographic direction of an image pickup camera 15 toward the backside of the vehicle when a driver sensor 23 senses it that a driver 22 takes its seat and the video image picked up by the image pickup camera 15 in this state is displayed on an on-vehicle monitor 19. When the driver sensor 23 does not sense it that a driver 22 takes seat on a driver's seat 17, the photographic direction of the image pickup camera 15 is directed in the inside of a compartment 12 and the video image picked up by the image pickup camera 15 is recorded on a VTR 21. Thus, both the functions of the backward monitor and the in-compartment monitor are provided to the on-vehicle monitor.

【0042】尚、図1乃至図3に示した実施例では、映像信号を記録する記録装置としてVTRを用いたが、他の映像記録装置、例えば磁気ディスクに映像信号を記録する装置をも用いてもよい。 [0042] In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, used was used VTR as a recording apparatus for recording video signals, other video recording apparatuses, also a device for recording a video signal, for example, in a magnetic disk it may be. また、図1乃至図3に示した実施例では、運転者検出センサ23は、運転者22の体重による圧力により、運転者22が座っているか否かを検出するようにしてが、他の検出方法、例えば赤外線アクティブ式の測離装置により運転者22が座っているか否かを検出するようにしてもよい。 Further, in the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, the driver detection sensor 23, the pressure due to the weight of the driver 22, so as to detect whether the driver 22 is seated but other detection method, for example by infrared active type HakaHanare device may be detected whether the driver 22 is seated.

【0043】 [0043]

【発明の効果】以上述べた様にこの発明によれば、車載用監視装置に後方監視用と車内監視用との両方の機能を持たせることができるので、車載用監視装置を後方確認に加えて、車両の盗難予防と、盗難が起きて車両がら乗り捨てられた後の犯人の究明とに役立てることができる。 According to the above mentioned present invention as according to the present invention, it is possible to have both functions of a and the interior monitoring rear monitoring the vehicle monitoring apparatus, adding vehicle monitoring apparatus Rearview Te, it can be useful for the theft prevention of the vehicle, and the investigation of criminal after the theft has been abandoned grounds vehicle happening.
