Claims (34)

1. The backlight system for a vehicle having a cargo platform forming the cargo space, a bumper located at the rear of the vehicle cargo platform, and a rear hinged side forming a recessed surface, the rear hinged side being pivotable between substantially open and substantially , closed by the provisions, while the said backlight system contains:
a first optically interactive portion located on a freight platform;
a second optically interactive portion located on the tailgate; and
a light source located on a recessed surface of the tailgate, and the light source and the first and second optically interactive surfaces are configured to illuminate the cargo space when the tailgate is in a substantially open position, and the illumination is downward in a substantially closed position.
2. The backlight system according to claim 1, further comprising:
a trailer coupling device mounted under the bumper, the light source and the first and second optically interactive sections being configured to co-illuminate the trailer coupling device.
3. The backlight system according to claim 1, in which the first and second optically interactive sections include at least one of the photoluminescent portion and the reflective element.
4. The backlight system according to claim 3, wherein the second optically interactive portion is a reflective element arranged to reflect light into the cargo space when the tailgate is in a substantially open position.
5. The backlight system according to claim 3, in which the first optically interactive portion contains a photoluminescent material configured to emit light between the rear hinged side and the bumper.
6. The backlight system of claim 1, wherein the light source is a printed unit of light emitting diodes having a variable density of light emitting diodes along the length of the printed unit of light emitting diodes.
7. The backlight system according to claim 6, in which the light source has an increased density of light emitting diodes near the region of the bumper license plate.
8. A vehicle containing:
cargo platform forming cargo space;
a bumper located behind the cargo platform of the vehicle;
a tailgate functioning between a substantially open position and a substantially closed position; and
an illumination system comprising a light source located on the rear hinged side such that the light source illuminates in a downward direction when the rear hinged side is in the closed position, and illuminates the cargo area when the rear hinged side is in the open position.
9. The vehicle of claim 8, wherein the light source is located on the rear hinged side at about the same height or below the horizontal axis.
10. The vehicle of claim 8, further comprising:
the first optically interactive section located on the cargo platform and configured to illuminate between the rear tailgate and the bumper and the bumper license plate area; and
the second optically interactive section located on the rear hinged side and configured to illuminate the cargo space.
11. The vehicle of claim 10, wherein the second optically interactive portion is a reflective member configured to reflect light.
12. The vehicle of claim 8, wherein the light source is a printed unit of light emitting diodes having a variable density of light emitting diodes along the length of the printed unit of light emitting diodes.
13. The vehicle of claim 12, wherein the light source has an increased density of light emitting diodes in the vicinity of the license plate region.
14. A vehicle containing:
a cargo platform having an optically interactive section located on it;
a bumper located at the rear of the vehicle’s cargo platform, the bumper forming a license plate region;
a trailer coupling mounted under the bumper; and
a light source located on the rear hinged side, and the optically interactive portion and the light source are configured to jointly illuminate the bumper license plate region and the trailer coupling device.
15. The vehicle of claim 14, wherein the tailgate functions between a substantially open position and a substantially closed position, the light source illuminating the cargo area when the tailgate is in the open position and illuminating the bumper in closed position.
16. The vehicle of claim 14, wherein the optically interactive portion includes at least one of a photoluminescent portion and a reflective element.
17. The vehicle of claim 14, wherein the light source is a printed unit of light emitting diodes having a variable density of light emitting diodes along the length of the printed unit of light emitting diodes.
18. The vehicle of claim 17, wherein the light source has a high density of light emitting diodes in the vicinity of the bumper license plate region.
19. The vehicle according to claim 18, in which the second reflective element is located on the rear hinged side and is configured to reflect light to the cargo platform when the rear hinged side is in a substantially horizontal position.
20. The vehicle according to claim 19, in which the second optically interactive section, which is reflective, is located on the rear hinged side near the light source.
