Application: Method and system for displaying external communication message (Patent ID: US20230249614A1)
The patent filed by Hyundai Mobis Co Ltd describes a method and system for displaying an external communication message based on the surrounding environment of a vehicle. The method involves determining whether a situation for displaying the message has occurred, generating the message, and outputting it using a projector. The system includes a communication unit, a sensing unit, an output unit with a projector, and a controller.
The method begins by determining the occurrence of a situation for displaying the external communication message based on environmental information. This information indicates the presence of an external object in the vehicle's surroundings. If the situation is determined to have occurred, the method proceeds to generate the external communication message. The generated message is then outputted using a projector.
The determination of whether the situation for displaying the message has occurred involves analyzing the environmental information. Specifically, the method determines whether the external object is a target or an external vehicle. If the object is identified as either the target or an external vehicle, it is concluded that the situation for displaying the message has occurred.
The method further includes differentiating between different situations based on the type of external object. For example, if the external object is identified as the target, the method determines whether the situation is a first situation where the target is a scanning surface in front of the vehicle or a second situation where the target is a pedestrian.
In response to determining the situation, the method generates the external communication message. The generation process involves various calculations and adjustments based on factors such as the distance, angle, state of the scanning surface or pedestrian, and the viewing angle of the vehicle's passengers or the driver of the external vehicle.
The system for displaying the external communication message includes a communication unit, a sensing unit with a camera assembly and an object detecting unit, an output unit with a projector, and a controller. The controller is responsible for determining the occurrence of the situation, generating the message, and controlling the output unit to display the message via the projector.
Overall, the patent describes a method and system that utilize environmental information to determine and display external communication messages in various situations, such as when there is an external object or vehicle present. The method and system involve analyzing the surroundings, generating the message, and projecting it using a projector.
