    Description

    BACKGROUND


    Field of The Invention



    [0001] The invention relates to a projection system, and more particularly to a vehicular projection system.

    Description of Related Art



    [0002] With the advancement of technology, automobile manufacturers are integrating ever more advanced audio/video, navigation, and phone functions on a center console of automobile. However, building so many conventional buttons or knobs on the narrow center console within a vehicle for controlling these functions results in the console that looks too crowded. Therefore, many automobile manufacturers have introduced touch screen technologies to control these complex functions, in order to achieve a simple and elegant design for the center console. Currently, automobile manufacturers have mainly used the thin film transistor-liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) to design the center console of a car. Since both the TFT-LCD and semiconductor manufacturing require vacuum evaporation and photolithography, the substrate materials that are typically chosen are glass materials which can withstand high temperature as well as etching by strong acids. Moreover, the glass material must have a smooth surface to satisfy a uniformity requirement for evaporation, which largely restricts the design possibilities. Although newer organic light emitting diode (OLED) display technologies may be characterized by flexibility, wide viewing angle, and good color saturation, many technical issues are still waiting to be solved. These deficiencies include inadequate mass production techniques, a shorter life span than the LCD, and immaturity in large size applications.

    [0003] A curved display that is highly applicable, large size, and with a long life span cannot be effectively achieved with the currently mainstream LCD or OLED display techniques. Therefore, automobile manufacturers are limited to a planar panel design when designing the exterior of the screen display inside a car cabin, as well as being limited to a dull display interface design. Due to the monotonous nature of the displays, automobile manufacturers often choose not to employ these displays at a large size as a design element.

    [0004] Accordingly, a projection system that can be applied in the audio/video system of the car not only adds variety, but can also effectively and practically reduce costs. Moreover, while the vehicle is being driven, the driver and the other passengers often want to view different images. Therefore, how to design a projection system which can satisfy both the driver and the other passengers is also an issue of primary importance. For example, Taiwan Patent Application No. 201009473 and U.S. Patent No. 7,777,960, both disclosed techniques for vehicular projection systems.

    [0005] JP 2006 011237 A relates to a display system for a vehicle which comprises a projector provided in the vehicle, an image dividing device for optically dividing an image, and a first screen and a second screen which are arranged on neutrally separated positions. An image is projected from one projector to the image division device, the image projected from the projector is divided by the image dividing device and the divided images are respectively projected to the first screen and the second screen.

    [0006] JP 2004 126465 A describes a video synthesis device synthesizing the video signals A and B and outputting a synthetic video signal obtained by time-dividing the video signals of the respective systems at every frame in accordance with a synchronizing signal. A video signal/optical video conversion device converts the synthetic video signal into an optical video. A half mirror branches the optical video into different directions and time-divisionally projects the optical videos branched by shutters on the screens arranged in the directions different for the respective optical videos of the respective systems in accordance with the synchronizing signal.

    [0007] In particular, US 2011/122049 A1 relates to an optoelectronic display system for transport vehicles providing simultaneous representation of visual information of different form and content relating to parameters of driving on the windscreen and at a dashboard plane. To form that visual information a unified image creator based on two LCD matrixes is used and an image intended for representation on the windscreen in collimated form is created on their upper parts and on their lower parts for representation at the dashboard plane. To improve the operating reliability, the system is provided with a control device for the image creation operation. In case one of the LCDs is out of service, the device is switching the other (operable) LCD into a mode wherein the minimum number of parameters is created for safe driving.

    [0008] US 7 976 168 B2 describes a system and a method for microprojection that uses multiple imagers to produce a high resolution output image. Each of a set of imagers produces a portion of the final image. Relay lenses then tile the individual image portions together into a combined image. Because the height of the individual imagers is smaller than the height of a monolithic imager, they can fit into a very thin device. The combined image has a resolution equal to the sum of the resolutions of the individual imagers. The individual imagers are tiled together within the microprojector itself rather than on a projection screen. This allows the tiling to be adjusted once at the factory and set forever. In some embodiments of the known system, the light created for use by the microprojector is split by a polarizing beamsplitter. Each resultant polarized beam is then sent to an imager. Another polarizing beamsplitter combines the individual images.

    [0020] FIG. 1 is a schematic view illustrating a projection system according to a time-division system similar to the one known from prior art document JP 2004 126465, which was modified for the invention. Referring to FIG. 1, a projection system 100 includes a projection apparatus 110, a beam splitting module 120, and two projection screens 130a and 130b. The projection apparatus 110 provides image light beam A+B. The beam splitting module 120 divides the image light beam A+B into a first image light beam A1 and a second image light beam B2. The two projection screens 130b and 130a respectively receives the first image light beam A1 and the second image light beam B2. Each of the first and second image light beams A1 and B2 respectively forms an image on one of the two projection screens 130b and 130a corresponding thereto. The first image light beam A1 forms an image on the projection screen 130b that a driver wants to view, such as a navigation image, for example; the second image light beam B2 forms an image on the projection screen 130a that the other passengers want to view, such as a movie image, for example, so as to satisfy the needs of different viewers.

    [0021] Therefore, in order to accomplish at least the above objectives, the first image light beam A1 has a first image information, the second image light beam B2 has a second image information, and the two image information are different image information that different viewers want to watch, such as vehicle information, road condition information, and multimedia images such as entertainment programs.

    [0022] The beam splitting module 120 includes a beam splitter 122, a first optical shutter 124a, and a second optical shutter 124b, in which the optical shutters may be liquid crystal (LC) panels or mechanical light grating devices. The beam splitting module 120 is for allowing one half of a light quantity of a light image beam A+B to pass through and the other half of the light quantity to reflect. Therefore, the beam splitting module 120 can divide the image light beam A+B into a first partial image light beam A1+B1 and a second partial image light beam A2+B2. Moreover, compared to the image light beam A+B before the light beam split, the first partial image light beam A1+B1 and the second partial image light beam A2+B2 retain approximately 50% of the original brightness of the image light beam A+B, for example, although the invention is not limited thereto. For the first partial image light beam A1+B1, when the first optical shutter 124a is opened, the first image light beam A1 in the first partial image light beam A1+B1 can pass through the first optical shutter 124a and project onto the projection screen 130b to form a first image. For the second partial image light beam A2+B2, when the second optical shutter 124b is opened, the second image light beam B2 in the second partial image light beam A2+B2 can pass through the second optical shutter 124b and project onto the projection screen 130a to form a second image.

    [0023] FIG. 2 is a waveform diagram of the electronic signals controlling the projection apparatus and the first and second optical shutters according to the prior art document JP 2004 126465. Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, in order to accomplish at least the objective of projecting different images on different screens, the first image light beam A1 and the second image light beam B2 having the first image information and the second image information are alternately projected from the projection apparatus 110. Moreover, the first optical shutter 124a opens or closes according to a frequency which the first image information is being projected from the projection apparatus 110; the second optical shutter 124b opens or closes according to a frequency which the second image information is being projected from the projection apparatus 110. However, the optical shutters are not limited to being opened or closed according to the frequency of the projection of the image information.

    [0024] Specifically, as shown in FIG. 2, a control signal Sp is an electronic signal controlling the projection apparatus 110 to project the image information. The reference symbols A and B labeled on the high level of the control signal Sp respectively represents the image light beam A+B projected from the projection apparatus 110 which is controlled by the control signal Sp in a timing sequence, and includes the first image information corresponding to the first image light beam A1, or includes the second image information corresponding to the second image light beam B2.

    [0025] The control signals SA and SB are electronic signals respectively controlling the opening or closing of the first and second optical shutters 124a and 124b. When the first partial image light beam A1+B1 is transmitted to the first optical shutter 124a, the first optical shutter 124a is controlled by the control signal SA at the high level to open, so the first image light beam A1 passes through the first optical shutter 124a and is projected onto the projection screen 130b. Similarly, when the second partial image light beam A2+B2 is transmitted to the second optical shutter 124b, the second optical shutter 124b is controlled by the control signal SB at the high level to open, so the second image light beam B2 passes through the second optical shutter 124b and is projected onto the projection screen 130a. The reference symbols A and B labeled on the high level of the control signals SA and SB represent the first or second optical shutters 124a or 124b being opened in a timing sequence.

    [0026] Therefore, this system uses the electronic signals of the projection apparatus 110 and the switching of the first and second optical shutters 124a and 124b to achieve an effect of multi-images on one device. The projection apparatus 110 projects the first and second image information of the image light beam A+B in an alternating timing sequence. The beam splitting module 120 is then used to divide the image light beam A+B into two, and when the first and second partial image light beams A1+B1 and A2+B2 respectively passes through the first and second optical shutters 124a and 124b, the two partial image light beams A1+B1 and A2+B2 are filtered to remain first and second image light beams A1 and B2 as required by the projection screens 130b and 130a, so as to satisfy the needs of the different viewers.

    [0027] On the other hand, in the embodiment of the invention according to the appended claims, the image light beam A+B respectively have different polarizations. For example, the light beam A of the image light beam A+B is p-polarized and includes the first image information, and the image light beam B of the image light beam A+B is s-polarized and includes the second image information. The first and second optical shutters 124a and 124b are respectively exchanged with a first polarizer and a second polarizer (not drawn). The first polarizer allows the first image light beam A1 to pass through and project onto the projection screen 130b. The second polarizer allows the second image light beam B2 to pass through and project onto the projection screen 130a.

    [0028] In view of the foregoing, the embodiments of the invention can achieve at least the following effects and advantages. According to the embodiments of the invention, by utilizing the electronic signals in the projection apparatus having different image information, and combined with a mechanical beam splitting module, the projection system can respectively project two different images on different screens, thereby satisfying the needs of different viewers.

    [0029] FIG. 3 is a schematic view illustrating a projection system applied in a car cabin according to an embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIGS. 1 and 3, the projection system 100 may be applied inside the car cabin, for example, to implement the effect of multi-images on one device. In the embodiment, the first image light beam A1 forms an image on the projection screen 130a that a driver wants to view; the second image light beam B2 forms an image on the projection screen 130b that the other passengers want to view, so as to satisfy the needs of different viewers.
