As shown in the drawings, the present invention is provided with a cut¬
off layer 110. The cut-off layer 110 is provided at an upper side of each door 102
of the vehicle 100 and is extended from a roof panel 104. The cut-off layer 110
is formed of a plurality of sliding plates 112a, 112b, ..., with a length being adjustable in such a manner that a small diameter part is inserted into a large
diameter part for thereby covering the upper side of the door 102.
Here, the cut-off layer 110 is formed in multiple steps and is folded or
unfolded based on a telescope method for thereby providing a cut-off layer at
the upper side of the door. With the above construction, passenger cannot get
wet using the cut-off layer 110 when getting on or off the vehicle. Namely, the
multiple step cut-off layer 110 is formed in an ordinary structure like an
extendable fishing rod or an extendable antenna, with the length of the same
being adjustable. The multiple step telescope rod is applied in the type of a
sliding plate shape. Therefore, the sliding plates, which form the multiple step
cut-off layer, is constructed in such a manner that a small diameter part is
inserted into a large diameter part for thereby adjusting the length.
The multiple step cut-off layer 110 can be adapted to all types of
vehicles. As shown in Figures 1 through 4, it can be installed at a car. In
addition, as shown in Figures 5 and 6, it can be installed at a large size vehicle.
In particular, even when the cut-off layer 110 is installed at the car, as shown in
Figures 1 and 2, a sunroof can be installed at the roof panel 104 of the car. The
above operation can be possible since the cut-off layer 110 is folded or unfolded
based on the sliding method, and a large space is not used when folding or
unfolding the same. As shown in the drawings, the present invention is provided with a
driving unit 120. The driving unit 120 includes a driving part 122 for
automatically slide-driving the multiple step cut-off layer 110, and a power unit
124 for supplying power to the driving unit 122. The driving unit 120 includes a
remote controller 126, so that the driving unit 122 can be operated based on an
operation of the remote controller 126.
The driving part 122 of the driving unit 120 and the circuit apparatus
connected with the driving part 122 are implemented based on the ordinary
technology. In particular, the power unit 124 may be formed of the battery
provided at the vehicle 100.
The present invention may be provided with a transmitter or a receiver
so that signals are transmitted to or received from the remote controller so as to
achieve the operation using the remote controller 126. The above construction
is preferably formed in the ordinary technology.
As shown in the drawings, the present invention is provided with a light
emitting lamp 130 and an obstacle sensor 132.
The light emitting lamp 130 and the obstacle sensor 132 are turned on
based on receiving the power from the power unit 124 and are installed along
the rim of the cut-off layer 110. The light emitting lamp 130 is preferably installed
at the front and rear sides of the cut-off layer 110. The obstacle sensor 132 is preferably installed at the front end of the cut-off layer 110. Here, the electric
connection between the light emitting lamp 130 and the obstacle sensor 132
and the power unit 124 is performed using an electric cable in the conventional
method. In particular, when a certain obstacle is detected by the obstacle
sensor 132, the extension of the cut-off layer 110 is stopped. The above
operation may be implemented with the conventional art.
The light emitting lamp 130 emits light along the rim of the cut-off layer
110 in a state that the cut-off layer 110 is slid and unfolded, so that people's
attention may be attracted at the surrounding portions of the cut-off layer 110,
whereby it is possible to prevent the pedestrian or passenger from colliding with
the cut-off layer 110. The obstacle sensor 132 prevents collision with obstacles
when the cut-off layer 110 is extended, and it is possible to prevent any error of
the rainwater control apparatus according to the present invention. Namely, it is
possible to prevent collision as the rainwater control apparatus of the present
invention is stopped based on the operation of the sensor before the collision
occurs as the obstacle sensor 132 detects the obstacle.
According to the present invention, when passenger gets on or off the
vehicle in rain or snow, the cut-off layer 110 is slid and extended. In this state,
the passenger gets on or off, so that they cannot become wet.
In particular, in the present invention, rainwater is prevented from being inputted into the vehicle by the cut-off layer 110. It is possible to prevent the
passenger's clothes from getting wet or prevent the indoor pollution. The
present invention can operate by the remote controller 126, so that a desired
convenient operation can be obtained.
In addition, the present invention may be well adapted to a common
vehicle, a high height leisure vehicle, a bongo vehicle, a large size bus, a cargo
vehicle, etc. In particular, when the present invention is adapted to the business
vehicle, the inherent functions of the present invention can be more efficiently
obtained while the passenger gets on or off the vehicle.
Industrial Applicability
As described above, in the present invention, the passenger gets on or
off in a state that the cut-off layer is extended when the passenger gets on or off
in rain or snow. With the above operation, the passenger doe not get wet or the
rainwater is not inputted into the interior of the vehicle, so that the indoor
pollution is prevented.
As the present invention may be embodied in several forms without
departing from the spirit or essential characteristics thereof, it should also be
understood that the above-described examples are not limited by any of the
details of the foregoing description, unless otherwise specified, but rather should be construed broadly within its spirit and scope as defined in the
