    [0222] Referring to FIG. 34, the cabin system 100 may provide a cleaning function. The cabin system 100 may further include an automatic cleaning system. The processor 171 may provide a control signal to an automatic cleaning system such that an automatic cleaning operation is performed during a downtime of the cabin system 100. The processor 171 may manage a sanitary condition of the interior of the cabin by irradiating ultraviolet light 3410 in the cabin.

    [0223] FIG. 35 is a diagram illustrating an operation of a cabin system according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0224] Referring to FIG. 35, the cabin system 100 may provide an advertising function using an external display 3610. The display system 400 may further include the external display 3610. The processor 171 may receive advertisement data from an advertisement server via the communication device 300. The processor 171 may provide a control signal such that a content based on the advertisement data is displayed on the external display 3610.

    [0226] Referring to FIG. 36, the cabin system 100 may further include a trunk 3510. The trunk 3510 may be in a module form. The trunk in the module form may be replaced depending user information. For example, a supplementary battery package may be provided in a first trunk. As another example, a cargo box loaded with items may be provided in a second trunk. As another example, a clothing care styler may be provided in a third trunk. A space formed in the vehicle 10 may accommodate the module-type trunk 3510. As the module-type trunk 3510 suitable for user information is provided, it is possible to provide an appropriate function in response to a user request.

    [0227] FIG. 37 is a control block diagram of a payment system according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0228] Referring to FIG. 37, the payment system 700 may include an input device 200, an imaging device 250, a communication device 300, a display system 400, a sound output unit 490, a cargo system 500, a seat system 600, and an electronic device 710. In some implementations, the payment system 700 may omit some of the aforementioned components, or may further include another component.

    [0229] The description provided with reference to FIGS. 1 to 37 may apply to the input device 200, the imaging device 250, the communication device 300, the display system 400, the sound output unit 490, the cargo system 500, and the seat system 600.

    [0230] The electronic device 710 may perform operations associated with implementation of the present disclosure, such as charging a vehicle occupant a particular cost for items in the vehicle, based on data acquired by sensors of the vehicle (e.g., based on image data acquired by processing one or more images detected by image sensors, such as imaging device 250). To this end, the electronic device 710 may include at least one interface unit 716, at least one processor 717, at least one memory 718, and a power supply 719.

    [0231] The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. In a wired or wireless manner, the interface unit 716 may exchange signals with at least one electronic device provided in the cabin system 100. The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with at least one of the input device 200, the communication device 300, the display system 400, the sound output device 490, the cargo system 500, or the seat system 600. The interface unit 716 may be electrically connected to the processor 171 and provide a received signal to the processor 171. The interface unit 716 may be at least one of a communication module, a terminal, a pin, a cable, a port, a circuit, an element, or a device.

    [0232] The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with at least one internal camera 251 for capturing an image of the interior of the cabin. The internal camera 251 may be provided as a plurality of cameras. For example, the internal camera 251 may be provided as a plurality of cameras for capturing images of a plurality of users in a plurality of seats. The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with the plurality of internal cameras 251. The internal camera 251 may be a single camera. For example, the internal camera 251 may be disposed at a ceiling to capture images of a plurality of users. The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with the single internal camera 251.

    [0233] The interface unit 716 may receive a signal from the seat system 600 in response to detection of a user's sitting on a seat. The seat system 600 may include a sensor (e.g., a weight sensor) for sensing the user's sitting on the seat. The interface unit 716 may receive a signal from the sensor of the seat system 600 in response to the user's sitting on the seat.

    [0234] The interface unit 716 may exchange signals with at least one external camera 252 for capturing an image of the outside of the vehicle 10.

    [0235] The processor 171 may control overall operation of each unit of the electronic device 710. The processor 171 may be electrically connected to the interface unit 716, the memory 718, and the power supply 719. The processor 171 may be one of sub-controllers included in the main controller 171. The processor 171 may operate by power provided from the power supply 719.

    [0236] The processor 717 may be implemented using at least one selected from among Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), Digital Signal Processing Devices (DSPDs), Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs), Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), processors, controllers, micro-controllers, microprocessors, and electric units for the implementation of other functions.

    [0237] The processor 171 may receive image data from at least one internal camera 251 via the interface unit 716. The image data may be an image of the interior of the cabin. The processor 171 may detect a user based on the image data. The processor 171 may detect the user's motion based on the image data.

    [0238] In some implementations, when a signal indicative of detection of the user's sitting on a seat is received from the seat system 600, the processor 171 may receive image data from at least one internal camera that is associated with (e.g., assigned to) the seat of the specified user, from among a plurality of internal cameras.

    [0239] In some scenarios, when the signal indicative of detection of the user's sitting on the seat is received from the seat system 600, the processor 171 may perform processing by distinguishing an image of a region corresponding to the seat for the specified user in the image data that is received from the at least one internal camera that is associated with that seat.

    [0240] The processor 717 may generate cost charging data based on a detected motion of a user. The cost charging data may be data for charging the user a particular cost for items in the vehicle. The cost charging data may include, at least one of user information, information on a used service, price information, and payment type information.

    [0241] The processor 717 may specify a user to be charged, based on image data acquired by the internal camera 251. For example, based on the image data, the processor 717 may specify one of a plurality users as a user to be charged. In some implementations, based on image data acquired by the external camera 251, the processor 171 may specify a user to be charged. The processor 171 may receive a signal from the seat system 600 via the interface unit 716 in response to detection of the user's setting on a seat. The processor 171 may specify a user to be charged, further based on the signal indicative of the detection of the user's sitting on the seat.

    [0242] In some implementations, the processor 171 may compare image data that was acquired before a user is onboard the vehicle and image data that was acquired after the user is onboard the vehicle. For example, the image data may include (i) first image data that was generated based on a processing of at least one first image captured by the at least one internal camera before the user is onboard the vehicle, and (ii) second image data that was generated based on a processing of at least one second image captured by at least one internal camera after the user is onboard the vehicle. The processor 171 may track the user's motion by comparing these two image data.

    [0243] In some implementations, the processor 717 may determine whether a detected motion of a user corresponds to at least one of a contamination cause motion, a breaking motion, or theft motion. The processor 171 may track a motion of a specified user by performing computer image processing. Based on the motion being tracked, the processor 717 may determine whether the motion of the specified user corresponds to at least one of a contamination cause motion, a breaking motion, or a theft motion. The contamination cause motion may relate to a contamination of the vehicle by the user, the breaking motion may relate to a breakage of items in the vehicle by the user, and the theft motion may relate to a theft of items in the vehicle by the user.

    [0244] In some scenarios, the processor 171 may receive vehicle movement data via the interface unit 716. By comparing a time of a contamination cause motion of a user and a time of a vehicle motion, the processor 171 may determine whether the contamination cause motion of the user is based on the vehicle motion. For example, the processor 171 may determine whether a beverage spilling motion of a user happens when the vehicle 10 moves over a road-surface object (e.g., a bump). If it is determined that the contamination cause motion of the user is based on the vehicle motion, the processor 717 may not generate cost charging data or may generate cost charging data of a discounted price.

    [0245] In some scenarios, the processor 717 may determine whether a contamination cause motion of a user is due to an item purchased by the user in the cabin. For example, the processor 717 may determine whether a contamination cause motion of a user is based on the user's exiting of the vehicle with a beverage container left in the cabin. If it is determined that the contamination cause motion of the user is due to the item purchased by the user in the cabin, then the processor 717 may not generate cost charging data or may generate cost charging data with a discounted price.

    [0246] The processor 717 may, in some implementations, receive image data from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the at least one external camera 252. The processor 717 may then generate body profile data of a user based on the image data received from at least one of the internal camera(s) 251 or the external camera(s) 252. For example, the image data may include at least one of (i) first image data that was generated based on processing at least one first image captured by at least one internal camera 251, or (ii) second image data that was generated based on processing at least one second image captured by at least one external camera 252.

    [0247] The body profile data may include, for example, at least one of the user's body size information or the user's body characteristic information (e.g., the user's body shape information, and information whether the user is the disabled). Based on the body profile data of the user, the processor 717 may track the user's motion. Based on a motion being tracked, the processor 717 may determine whether a motion of a specified user corresponds to at least one of a contamination cause motion, a breaking motion, or a theft motion.

    [0248] Based on a user's motion, the processor 717 may determine whether an item in a cargo box is purchased. The cargo box may be any suitable storage area that is provided in the cabin to provide an item for the user. For example, a cargo box loaded with a plurality of items may be retractable from at least one portion of a seat.

    [0249] In some implementations, the processor 717 may specify, from image data, a direction of the user's hand reaching for an item in the cargo box. The processor 717 may specify a user to be charged, based on the direction of the hand reaching. For example, when it is determined that a direction of a hand is reaching the cargo box from a first seat, the processor 717 may specify an occupant in the first seat as a user to be charged.

    [0250] Additionally or alternatively, the processor 717 may detect an item selecting motion of a user and an item opening motion of a user who is specified from image data. When the item selecting motion and the item opening motion is detected from the image data, the processor 717 may determine that the specified user has purchased an item. The processor 717 may generate cost charging data including price information of the purchased item.

    [0251] In addition or as an alternative to processing image data from cameras, the processor 717 may also process data that was captured by other types of sensors, in order to determine whether a user has purchased an item.

    [0252] For example, in some implementations, the processor 717 may receive sensing data via the interface unit 716 from a weight sensor for the cargo box. Based on the received sensing data (e.g., indicating whether there has been a change in a weight of the cargo box), the processor 717 may determine whether or not a user has purchased an item.

    [0253] As another example, in some implementations, the cargo box may include a light emitting device. The light emitting device may include at least one light source whose output corresponds to a plurality of items (e.g., there may be a plurality of light sources that correspond to the plurality of items). In response to a signal corresponding to selection of one of the plurality of items, the light emitting device may change output light from the at least one light source (e.g., by outputting light from one of the plurality of light sources). For example, the cargo box may include a plurality of storage areas (e.g., pockets), and when a change in light around a particular pocket of the cargo box is detected from image data, then the processor 717 may determine that a specified user purchases an item kept in the particular pocket of the cargo box.

    [0254] In some implementations, the processor 717 may communicate with other electronic devices in the vehicle 10 based on detecting a motion of the user that indicates a purchase of an item.

    [0255] For example, when an item selecting motion of the user is detected, the processor 717 may provide, to at least one another electronic device provided in the vehicle 10, a signal to output item selection information. Based on a provided signal, at least one of the display system 400 or the sound output unit 490 may output item selection information. Based on a signal provided via the communication device 300, the mobile terminal 390 of a user may output item selection information.

    [0256] As another example, when an item opening motion is detected, the processor 717 may provide, to at least one another electronic device provided in the vehicle 10, a signal to output item purchase information. Based on a provided signal, at least one of the display system 400 or the sound output unit 490 may output item purchase information. Based on a signal provided via the communication device 300, the mobile terminal 390 of a user may output item purchase information.

    [0257] In some implementations, the processor 717 may detect that a motion of the user indicates a cancellation of an attempted purchase of an item. For example, when a motion of selecting an item and then putting the item back to the cargo box is detected from image data, the processor 717 may determine that a purchase of the item is cancelled.

    [0258] The processor 717 may store image data, which is the basis of cost charging, in the memory 718. The processor 717 may transmit cost charging data to the mobile terminal 390 of a user via the interface unit 716 and the communication device 300. In this case, via the interface unit 716 and the communication device 300 may transmit the stored image data together with the cost charging data to the mobile terminal 390 of the user. By checking an image received in the mobile terminal 390, the user is able to know the reason for the cost charging.

    [0259] In some implementations, generating the cost charging data may be based on various other actions of the user and the vehicle, in addition to the user purchasing items. For example, the processor 717 may generate cost charging data based on at least one of a vehicle travel motion or a service provision motion.

    [0260] For example, the cost charging data may be generated based on a vehicle travel operation. In such scenarios, a price based on the vehicle travel motion may be defined a fare for a vehicle's travelling from a start location where a specified user gets on to an end location where the specified user gets off.

    [0261] As another example, the cost charging data may be generated based on a service provided to the user. In such scenarios, a price based on the service provision motion may be fees for a service that includes, for example, at least one of a seat massage function provision service, an in-vehicle air-conditioning/heating service, a content provision service provided using the display system 400, or a private space provision service.

    [0262] The processor 717 may transmit cost charging data to one or more payment servers. The payment server may charge a specified user based on the cost charging data. For example, the cost charging data include card data of a user. The payment server may charge based on the card data. For example, the cost charging data may include mobile terminal data of a user. The payment server may charge using a mobile terminal.

    [0263] The processor 717 may receive cost charging process result data from the payment server via the interface unit 716 and the communication device 300. The processor 717 may provide a signal to the display system 400 such that cost charging result information is displayed based on the cost charging process result data.

    [0264] The processor 717 may detect an exiting motion of a user from the vehicle, for example based on image data received from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the external camera 252. When the exiting motion of the user is detected, the processor 717 may transmit cost charging data to the payment server.

    [0265] The memory 718 is electrically connected with the processor 717. The memory 718 may store basic data for each unit, control data for the operational control of each unit, and input/output data. The memory 718 may store data processed by the processor 717. The memory 718 may be implemented as at least one of a ROM, a RAM, an EPROM, a flash drive, or a hard drive. The memory 718 may store various data for the overall operation of the electronic device 710 such as programs for the processing or control of the processor 717. In some implementations, the memory 718 may be integrally formed with the processor 717. The memory 718 may be driven by power supplied from the power supply 719.

    [0266] The power supply 719 may supply power to the electronic device 710. The power supply 719 may be supplied with power from a power source included in the vehicle 10, and supply power to each unit of the electronic device 710. The power supply 719 may operate in accordance with a control signal from the processor 717. For example, the power supply 719 may be implemented as a switched-mode power supply (SMPS).

    [0267] The electronic device 710 may include at least one PCB. The interface unit 716, the processor 717, the memory 718, and the power supply 719 may be mounted on at least one PCB.

    [0268] FIG. 38 is a flowchart illustrating an operation of a payment system according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0269] Referring to FIG. 38, when the vehicle 10 is powered-on, the payment system 700 operates (S1205).

    [0270] The processor 717 may generate reference data through interior monitoring (S1210). Via the interface unit 716, the processor 717 may receive various types of data from various electronic devices in the cabin. The processor 717 may generate reference data based on the received data. For example, the processor 717 may acquire image data from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the external camera 252. The processor 717 may generate reference data based on the reference data. For example, the processor 717 may generate reference data for at least one of seat position data of a seat, basic volume data of a seat, data on a contamination level of a seat, data on the current operation status of a device in the cabin, data on breakage of any device in the cabin, or storage data of the cargo box.

    [0271] The processor 717 may determine whether the cabin system 100 operates properly (S1215). Based on received data, the processor 717 may determine whether the cabin system 100 operates properly.

    [0272] When the cabin system 100 does not operate properly, the processor 717 may transmit an error result to a management server, and provide a control signal to an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of the vehicle such that the vehicle 10 moves to a repair center (S1220).

    [0273] When the cabin system 100 operates properly, the processor 717 may determine whether a user (e.g., a passenger) is onboard, based on received data (S1225). For example, the processor 717 may determine whether a user is onboard, based on image data received from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the external camera 252. When it is determined that the user is not onboard, the processor 717 returns back to step S1210.

    [0274] When it is determined that the user is onboard, the processor 717 may determine an onboard location of the user based on received data (s1230). For example, the processor 717 may determine an onboard location of the user based on image data received from the internal camera 251. By determining the onboard location of the user, the processor 717 may specify the user.

    [0275] The processor 717 may monitor a motion of the user (S1235). For example, the processor 717 may monitor a motion of the user based on image data received from the internal camera 251.

    [0276] The processor 717 may determine whether the user's motion is a service using motion (s1240). For example, the processor 727 may determine whether the user's motion is a motion of using a seat massage function, a motion of using a content of the display system 400, a motion of using a business seat (e.g., a motion of using a private space service), or a motion of purchasing an item in the cargo box.

    [0277] When it is determined that the user's motion is a service using motion, the processor 717 may specify a service content and a service user (S1245). For example, the processor 717 may specify service content and a service user based on image data received from the internal camera 251. For example, the processor 717 may specify a service user based on sensing data received from the seat system 600.

    [0278] The processor 717 may charge a price corresponding to a service used by a specified user (S1225). The processor 717 may generate first cost charging data based on a detected motion of the user. The first cost charging data may include at least one of information on the specified specific user, information on a used service, price information, and payment type information.

    [0279] The processor 717 may determine whether a passenger is about to get off, based on received data (S1255). For example, the processor 717 may determine whether a passenger is about to get off based on image data received from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the external camera 252.

    [0280] When it is determined that a passenger is about to get off, the processor 717 may generate second cost charging data, based on a price for a travel operation of vehicle 10 (S1260). The second cost charging data may include at least one of information on a getting-on location and a getting-off location of a user, moving distance information, moving time information, price information, or payment type information.

    [0281] The processor 717 may compare the reference data generated in the step S1210 and image data acquired after the user gets off the vehicle 10 (S1265).

    [0282] The processor 717 may determine whether there is a difference between the reference data and the image data acquired after the user gets off the vehicle 10 (S1270). For example, by comparison, the processor 717 may determine at least one of contamination of a seat, breakage of any device in the cabin, theft of any item in the cabin, or malfunction of any device in the cabin.

    [0283] When it is determined that there is such a difference, the processor 717 may generate third cost charging data based on the difference (S1275). The third cost charging data may include at least one of information on the specified user, cost charging reason information, price information, or payment type information.

    [0284] Then, the processor 717 may transmit a signal including cost charging data to the payment server via the interface unit 716 and the communication device 300. The cost charging data may include at least one of the first cost charging data, the second cost charging data, or the third cost charging data.

    [0285] FIG. 39 is a flowchart illustrating an operation of a payment system according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0286] Referring to FIG. 39, when the input device 300 receives a snack menu selection input of a user (S1305), the processor 717 may enter a snack menu (S1315) and provide a signal to the cargo system 500 to open a snack bar (S1320). The snack bar may be understood as the aforementioned cargo box.

    [0287] Even without the snack menu selection input of the user, when a snack bar button is pressed (S1310), the processor 717 may provide a signal to the cargo system 500 to open the snack bar (S1320). In some implementations, the snack bar button may be understood as a button that is disposed in at least one region of the cargo box to generate a signal indicative of entrance/exit of the cargo box.

    [0288] When the snack bar button is pressed again while the snack bar is opened (S1325 and S1365), the processor 717 may provide a signal to the display system 400 so as to return back to a screen previous to a multi-media screen (S1370). If there is no previous screen, the display system 400 may output a main menu.

    [0289] While the snack bar is opened, the processor 717 may determine whether any snack is taken out of the snack bar (S1330). A snack may be understood as one of items provided through the aforementioned cargo box.

For example, the first box 531 may be selected from among the plurality of boxes based on user destination data. The selected first box 531 may move from trunk to the inside of the cabin by the moving mechanism 520.

    [0376] FIG. 55 is a control block diagram of a display system according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0377] Referring to FIG. 55, the display system 400 may include an interface unit 406, a processor 407, a memory 408, a power supply 409, a display device 406, and a sound output unit 490.

    [0378] The description provided above with reference to FIGA. 1 to 55 may apply to the input device 200, the imaging device 250, the communication device, and the display device 410. Hereinafter, description not redundant with the description of FIGS. 1 to 55 will be provided primarily.

    [0379] The input device 200 may receive a user input for manipulating the display device 410 and converts the user input into an electrical signal. The imaging device 250 may acquire an image for detecting a user's motion. The communication device 300 may receive, from at least one of an external server, a mobile terminal, or another vehicle a content to be output through the display device 410 and the sound output unit 490. In FIG. 55, the input device 200, the imaging device 250, and the communication device 300 are depicted as exchanging signals directly with the processor 407, but the input device 200, the imaging device 250, and the communication device 300 may also exchange signals with the processor via the interface unit 406.

    [0380] The display system 400 may be installed in the vehicle 10. The display system 400 may be referred to as a vehicle display system. The display system 400 may provide a menu, a multi-media content, a video conference, driving situation information, etc. to a user in the cabin.

    [0381] The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. In a wired or wireless manner, the interface unit 406 may exchange signals with at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. The interface unit 406 may exchange signals at least one of the input device 200, the imaging device 250, the communication device 300, the cargo system 500, the seat system 600, or the payment system 700. The interface unit 406 may be electrically connected to the processor 407 and provide a received signal to the processor 407. The interface unit 406 may be at least one of a communication module, a terminal, a pin, a cable, a port, a circuit, an element, or a device.

    [0382] The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with at least one of the input device 200, the imaging device 250, or the communication device 300. The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with the internal camera 251. The interface unit 406 may receive image data from the internal camera 251.

    [0383] The processor 407 may control overall operation of each unit of the display system 400. The processor 407 may be electrically connected to the interface unit 406, the memory 408, and the power supply 409. The processor 407 may be one of sub-controllers included in the main controller 171. The processor 407 may operate by power provided from the power supply 409.

    [0384] The processor 407 may be implemented using at least one selected from among Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), Digital Signal Processing Devices (DSPDs), Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs), Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), processors, controllers, micro-controllers, microprocessors, and electric units for the implementation of other functions.

    [0385] The processor 407 may receive a user input-based signal. The processor 407 may receive the user input-based signal from at least one of the input device 200, the imaging device 250, or the communication device. The processor 407 may provide a control signal to at least one of the display device 410 or the sound output unit 490.

    [0386] The processor 407 may acquire various types of data regarding a user within the vehicle. For example, the processor 407 may acquire data regarding a user's sitting position. In some implementations, the processor 407 may receive the sitting position data from at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. For example, the processor 407 may receive a user's sitting position data from the seat system 600. The seat system 600 may include a sitting position sensor. The processor 407 may receive sensing data generated by the sitting position sensor. For example, the processor 407 may receive sitting position data from a sensor such as imaging device 250. As a particular example, the processor 407 may receive sitting position data that is detected through image processing of image data of an internal camera (e.g., internal camera 251 in FIGS. 4C, 40, 41, or 57).

    [0387] Based on a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a viewing angle of a display within the vehicle, such as display 411, 412, or 413. In some implementations, the processor 407 may provide a control signal so as to adjust a viewing angle of the display 411, 412, or 413 in accordance with a sitting position. The processor 407 may provide a control signal to at least one of a first display 411, a second display 412, or a third display 413. To control the viewing angle of these displays, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to at least one of a first mechanism 416, a second mechanism 417, or a third mechanism 418, for example.

    [0388] In some implementations, the processor 407 may detect that a user has changed a sitting position within the vehicle. For example, the processor 407 may receive seat change data from the seat system 600 via the interface unit 406. In this case, the processor 407 may receive a user's gaze data (e.g., from the internal camera 251) via the interface unit 406. Based on the user's gaze data, the processor 407 may transmit a control signal to adjust a viewing angle of the display 411, 412, or 413.

    [0389] In response to a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a position of the display 411, 412, or 413. Adjusting the position of the display 411, 412, or 413 may be implemented by various mechanisms. For example, as discussed further below, adjusting the position of display 411, 412, or 413 may include (i) raising/lowering the display, (ii) rolling up/down the display, and/or (iii) changing a curvature of the display, just as some examples.

    [0390] For example, based on a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to a first mechanism 416 to raise or lower the first display 411. Based on the control signal, the first mechanism 416 may raise or lower the first display 411. As another example, based on a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to a second mechanism 417 to roll up or down the second display 412. Based on the control signal, the second mechanism 417 may roll up or down the second display 412. As yet another example, based on a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to a third mechanism 418 to change a curvature of the third display 413. Based on the control signal, the third mechanism 418 may change the curvature of the third display 413.

    [0391] In some implementations, a display region location within a display 411, 412, or 413 may be adjusted based on a user's sitting position. For example, based on a user's sitting position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the display device 410 to change a location of a display region in the display 411, 412, or 413. Based on the control signal, the display device 410 may change a location of the display region in the display 411, 412, or 413 in at least one of an upward direction or a downward direction.

    [0392] In some implementations, a viewing angle of a display may be adjusted based on a user's sitting position. For example, based on data received from at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a viewing angle of the display 411, 412, or 413.

    [0393] As a particular example, the processor 407 may receive image data including a user image from the internal camera 251. The processor 407 may detect a user's gaze and finger from the image data. The processor 407 may determine whether a virtual line connecting the user's gaze and finger meets a space where the display 411, 412, or 413 is allowed to be positioned. When it is determined that the virtual line meets the space where the display 411, 412, or 413 is allowed to be positioned, the processor 407 may output a user control availability notifying content. The processor 407 may display a graphic object or output a sound content. The processor 407 may track a motion of the finger of the user in the user image. Depending on the motion of the finger of the user, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a viewing angle of a display. In doing so, a user is allowed to adjust a viewing angle intuitively.

    [0394] In some implementations, a position of an input device may be adjusted based on a user's sitting position. For example, based on a user's sitting position data, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a position of the input device 200. The processor 407 may provide a control signal so as to adjust the position of the input device 200 in accordance with a user's sitting position.

    [0395] As a particular example, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to control a tilting angle of the touch input unit 210 in accordance with a user's sitting position. The processor 407 may provide a control signal to raise or lower the jog dial device in accordance with a user's sitting position. When a user's sitting position is lowered, the processor 407 may provide a control signal such that a manipulation guidance image displayed on an upper surface of the jog dial device is displayed on a side surface of the jog dial device.

    [0396] In some implementations, one or more displays may be adjusted in various ways based on a number of occupants in the vehicle. The processor 407 may receive data on the number of occupants. The processor 407 may receive the data on the number of onboard users from at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. For example, the processor 407 may receive data on the number of occupants from the seat system 600. The processor 407 may receive data on the number of occupants based on sitting sensors included in the seat system 600. For example, the processor 407 may receive data on the number of occupants from the imaging device 250. The processor 407 may acquire data on the number of occupants from at least one of the internal camera 251 or the external camera 252.

    [0397] Based on data on the number of occupants, various types of display properties of display 411, 412, or 413 may be adjusted. Just as one example, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to divide a display region of the display 411, 412, or 413. Depending on the number of occupants, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the display device 410 so as to divide a display region of the display 411, 412, or 413.

    [0398] In some implementations, computer memory 408 may be electrically connected with the processor 407. The memory 408 may store various types of data, such as basic data for each unit, control data for the operational control of each unit, and input/output data. The memory 408 may be implemented as at least one of a ROM, a RAM, an EPROM, a flash drive, or a hard drive. The memory 408 may store various data for the overall operation of the display system 400 such as programs for the processing or control of the processor 407. In some implementations, the memory 408 may be integrally formed with the processor 407. The memory 408 may be driven by power supplied from the power supply 409.

    [0399] The power supply 409 may supply power to the cabin system 100. The power supply 409 may be supplied with power from a power source (for example, a battery) included in the vehicle 10, and provide power to each unit of the display system 400. The power supply 409 may operate in accordance with a control signal from the processor 407. For example, the power supply 409 may be implemented as a switched mode power supply (SMPS).

    [0400] The display system 400 may include at least one PCB. The interface unit 406, the processor 407, the memory 408, or the power supply 409 may be mounted onto at least one PCB.

    [0401] The display device 410 may display at least one graphic object. By displaying a graphic object, the display device 410 may provide a menu, a multi-media content, a video conference, driving situation information, etc. to a user in the cabin. The description about the first display device 410 with reference to FIGS. 1 to 10 may apply to the display device 410.

    [0402] The display device 410 may include at least one display 411, 412, or 413. In the example of FIG. 55, the display device 410 is depicted as including four displays, but the number of displays in the display device 410 may be any suitable number.

    [0403] The display device 410 may include all of the first display 411, the first mechanism 416, the second display 412, the second mechanism 417, the third display 413, and the third mechanism, or may selectively include some of them.

    [0404] As an example, the display device 410 may selectively include the first display 411 and the first mechanism 416. The first display 411 may be disposed in the rear of a seat and may be retractable in the cabin. The first mechanism 416 may move the first display 411.

    [0405] As another example, the display device 410 may selectively include the second display 412 and the second mechanism 417. The second display 12 may be disposed at a ceiling in the cabin, and may be configured to be rollable. The second mechanism 417 may roll up and down the second display 412.

    [0406] As yet another example, the display device 410 may selectively include the third display 413 and the third mechanism 418. The third display 413 may be disposed at a ceiling in the cabin and may be configured to be flexible. The third mechanism may bend or unbend the third display 413.

    [0407] FIG. 56 illustrates an example of a user's sitting position according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0408] Referring to FIG. 56, a sitting position 441 or 442 of a user may be determined as a position of a user indicating that the user is sitting on a seat. A user's sitting position may be determined by various types of systems/devices and in various ways, as discussed below.

    [0409] In some implementations, the seat system 600 may generate a user's sitting position data based on a sitting position sensor. For example, the seat system 600 may include a tilt sensor disposed at a backrest of a seat. The seat system 600 may generate a user's sitting position data based on sensing data generated by the tilt sensor.

    [0410] In some implementations, the imaging device 250 may generate a user's sitting position data based on image processing. The imaging device 250 may include at least one processor to implement an image processing algorithm. The imaging device 250 may acquire a user image through the internal camera 251. For example, while a user is sitting on a seat, the imaging device 250 may generate the user's sitting position data based on a height of a head of the user. For example, the imaging device 250 may generate a user's sitting position data based on a tilt angle of the user's upper body or lower body relative to a bottom surface of the cabin.

    [0411] In some implementations, a user's sitting position may be further classified into various types of sitting positions. For example, in the example of FIG. 56, a user's sitting position may be classified into a first sitting position 441 and a second sitting position 442. The first sitting position 441 may be defined as a position indicating that the user sits on a seat, and the second sitting position 442 may be defined as a position indicating that the user reclines or lies back on a seat. For example, the first sitting position 441 may be detected as a position relatively higher than the second sitting position 442, and the second sitting position 442 may be detected as a position relatively lower than the first sitting position 441.

    [0412] FIG. 57 illustrates an example of a user input for adjusting a display viewing angle according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0413] In some implementations, a user's input may be detected in various ways to control one or more displays in the vehicle.

    [0414] For example, as illustrated with reference numeral 451, at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may receive image data including a user image from the internal camera 251. Based on this image data, as illustrated with reference numeral 452, the processor 407 may detect a user's gaze and finger from the image data using a predetermined image processing algorithm.

    [0415] As an example, based on the image data, the processor 407 may determine whether a virtual line 452a connecting the user's gaze and finger meets a space 452b where the display 411 is allowed to be positioned. When it is determined that the display 411 is positioned on the virtual line 452a, the processor 407 may output, via at least one of the display device 410 or the sound output unit 490, a content for notifying that a location of a display is controllable based on a user's motion.

    [0416] As illustrated with reference numeral 453, the processor 407 may track a motion of a finger of a user and provide a control signal for adjusting a viewing angle of the display 411 based on the motion of the finger. For example, when a finger moving upward is tracked, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to move the first display 411 upwardly. For example, when a finger moving downward is tracked, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to move the display 411 downwardly. As illustrated with reference numeral 454, when a the user puts down his/her arm thus user's finger pointing at the display 411 is not detected, the processor 407 may terminate a display control process.

    [0417] FIGS. 58 and 59 illustrate examples of a physical operation for adjusting a viewing angle of a first display according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0418] Referring to FIGS. 58 and 59, the first display 411 may be disposed at the back of at least one seat 611 or 612. For example, the first display 411 may be disposed at the rear of a first seat 611 and a second seat 612. In this case, the first display 411 may face a third seat and a fourth seat. A user sitting on the third seat or the fourth seat is able to view a content displayed on the first display 411. For example, the first display may be disposed at the rear of the third seat and the fourth seat. In this case, the first display 411 may face the first seat 611 and the second seat 612. A user sitting on the first seat 611 or the second seat 612 is able to view a content displayed on the first display 411.

    [0419] The first display 411 may be retractable in the cabin. The first display 411 may be disposed in a slot formed in a seat frame. The first display 411 may be retractable from the slot to a space of the cabin or from the space of the cabin into the slot by a first mechanism. The first mechanism may allow at least a part of the first display 411 to move out of the slot to the space of the cabin or from the space of the cabin into the slot.

    [0420] A first mechanism 416 may adjust a viewing angle by physically moving the first display 411. The first mechanism 416 may operate based on a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55). The first mechanism 416 may include a drive unit, a power conversion unit, and a power transfer unit. The drive unit may convert electrical energy into kinetic energy. The drive unit may generate power. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. The power conversion unit may convert the generated power into power suitable for moving the first display 411. The power transfer unit may transfer the converted power to the first display 411.

    [0421] At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the first mechanism 416 so as to raise or lower the first display 411 in accordance with a user's sitting position.

    [0422] For example, when data on a first sitting position 441 is acquired, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the first mechanism 416 such that at least a part of the first display 411 comes out in the space of the cabin. As such, the first mechanism 416 may cause at least a part of the first display 411 to move into the space of the cabin from the slot. In this case, the first display 411 may be in a first state 411a.

    [0423] As another example, when data on a second sitting position 422 is acquired, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the first mechanism 416 such that at least a part of the first display 411 moves into the slot. The first mechanism 416 may cause at least a part of the first display 411 to move from the space of the cabin into the slot. In this case, the first display 411 may be in a second state 411b. The second state 411b may be understood as a state in which the first display 411 has an exposed region smaller than in the first state 411a.

    [0424] In some implementations, the display device 410 may further include a flexible region adjusting mechanism. The flexible region adjusting mechanism may operate in accordance with a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55), for example, to adjust a display to be oriented in various directions, such as toward a user.

    [0425] For example, the flexible region adjusting mechanism may include a first rail, a second rail, a post, a connector, and a driving unit. The first rail may be attached onto one surface of the first display 411. The first rail may be formed of a flexible material. The first rail may restrain one end of the connector in an overall-height direction. The first rail may guide the connector to slide in an overall-width direction.

    [0426] The second rail may be attached to the bottom of the cabin or one portion of a seat frame. The second rail may retrain one end of a post in the overall-length direction. The second rail may guide the post to slide in the overall-width direction.

    [0427] The post may extend in the overall-height direction. One end of the post may be inserted into the second rail and slide along the second rail in the overall-width direction. The connector may connect the post and the first display 411. One end of the connector may be inserted into the first rail. One end of the connector may be connected to the first rail, while bending one region of the first display 411 in a first direction.

    [0428] The drive unit may provide power so as to enable the post to slide. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. If the post slides along the second rail, the connector may slide along the first rail. In response to movement of the connector, a flexible region of the first rail may be changed, and, in response to the change of the flexible region of the first rail, the flexible region of the display 411 may be changed.

    [0429] The flexible region adjusting mechanism may include a post extending in an upward-downward direction (e.g., the overall-width direction), and a connector connecting the post and the first display 411.

    [0430] The first display 411 may be flexible in the left-right direction (e.g., the overall-width direction).

    [0431] At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the flexible region adjusting mechanism such that the first display 411 is oriented toward a user. The processor 407 may provide a control signal to the flexible region adjusting mechanism so as to adjust a flexible region of the first display 411 in response to a user's location.

    [0432] FIGS. 60 and 61 illustrates examples of a physical operation for adjusting a viewing angle of a second display according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0433] Referring to FIGS. 60 and 61, the second display 412 may be disposed at a ceiling in the cabin. The second display 412 may be rollable, for example, to rollably extend from or contract into the ceiling. In some implementations, the second display 412 may be implemented in a scroll-like mechanism, which controls the second display 412 to roll upwards or downwards.

    [0434] For example, as shown in FIGS. 60 and 61, the second display 412 may be disposed between a region corresponding to the first seat 611 and a region corresponding to the third seat 613 facing the first seat 611 at the ceiling of the cabin. As another example, the second display 412 may be disposed between a region corresponding to the second seat 612 and a region corresponding to the fourth seat 614 facing the second seat 612 at the ceiling of the cabin.

    [0435] In a rolled-up state, the second display 412 may be disposed in the overall-width direction at the ceiling. For example, in the rolled-up state, the second display 412 may roll upwards towards the ceiling, so as to not protrude or to protrude by a smaller amount from the ceiling.

    [0436] In some implementations, the second display 412 may be formed such that a screen output is allowed on both surfaces of the second display 412. In such scenarios, users sitting on the first and second seats 611 and 612, and users sitting on the third and fourth seats 613 and 614 are all able to view a content displayed on the second display 412.

    [0437] The second display 412 may be rolled down or up in the cabin by various mechanisms. For example, in some implementations, the second mechanism 417 may roll up or down the second display 412 using a scrolling-type mechanism. In such implementations, the second display 412 may be flexible, and may be rolled up or rolled down based on a scrolling operation in alternate directions.

    [0438] The second mechanism 417 may adjust a viewing angle by physically moving the second display 412. The second mechanism 417 may operate based on a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55). The second mechanism 417 may include a drive unit, a power conversion unit, and a power transfer unit. The drive unit may convert electrical energy into kinetic energy. The drive unit may generate power. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. The power conversion unit may convert the generated power into power suitable for moving the second display 412. The power transfer unit may transfer the converted power to the second display 412.

    [0439] At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the second mechanism 417 so as to roll up or down the second display 412 in accordance with a user's sitting position.

    [0440] For example, when data on a first sitting position 441 is acquired, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the second mechanism 417 such that at least a part of the second display 412 is rolled up. The second mechanism 417 may cause at least a part of the second display 412 to roll up at least a part of the second display 412. In this case, the second display 412 may be in a first state 412a.

    [0441] As another example, when data on a second sitting position 422 is acquired, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the second mechanism 417 such that at least a part of the second display 412 is rolled down. In this case, the second display 412 may be in a second state 412b. The second state 412b may be understood as a state in which the second display 412 has an exposed region greater than in the first state 412a.

    [0442] FIGS. 62 and 63 illustrate examples of a physical operation of adjusting a viewing angle of a third display according to an implementation of the present disclosure. In these examples, the third display 413 may have a curved or bent display that can be adjusted based on a user's sitting position.

    [0443] In some implementations, the third display 413 may be disposed at the ceiling in the cabin. The third display 413 may be flexible. The third display 413 may be disposed at a location on the ceiling of the cabin, which faces the third seat 613 and the fourth seat 614. The third display 413 may be disposed at a location on the ceiling of the cabin, which faces the first seat 611 and the second seat 612. The third display 413 may be bent or unbent.

    [0444] The third mechanism 418 may adjust a viewing angle by physically moving specific portions of the third display 413 to change a bending or curvature of the third display 413. The third mechanism may operate based on a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55). The third mechanism 418 may include a drive unit, a power conversion unit, and a power transfer unit. The drive unit may convert electrical energy into kinetic energy. The drive unit may generate power. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. The power conversion unit may convert the generated power into power suitable for moving the third display 413. The power transfer unit may transfer the converted power to the third display 413.

    [0445] At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the third mechanism 418 so as to change a curvature of the third display 413 in accordance with a sitting position. As examples, the curvature of the third display 413 may be changed depending on whether a user is in a reclined or upright sitting position, so as to provide a suitable viewing angle.

    [0446] For example, as shown in FIGS. 62 and 63, when data on a first sitting position 441 is acquired and indicates the user is in an upright position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the third mechanism 418 such that an upper part of the third display 413 is bent in a direction opposite to a direction toward the space of the cabin (e.g., away from a user). Additionally or alternatively, the lower part of the third display 413 may be bent in a direction toward the space of the cabin (e.g., toward the user). In this case, the third display 413 may be in a first state 413a.

    [0447] As another example, when data on a second sitting position 422 is acquired and indicates the user is in a reclined position, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the third mechanism 418 such that a lower part of the third display 413 is bent in the direction opposite to the direction toward the space of the cabin (e.g., away from the user). Additionally or alternatively, the upper part of the third display 413 may be bent in a direction opposite to a direction toward the space of the cabin (e.g., away from the user) . In this case, the third display 413 may be in a second state 413b. As such, the second state 413b may be a state in which an area of the third display 413 facing the bottom of the cabin is greater than in the first state 413a, thus providing an appropriate viewing angle for a user in a more reclined sitting position.

    [0448] FIG. 64 is an example of adjusting a viewing angle in response to change in a location of a display region of a display according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0449] Referring to FIG. 64, while a region of a display (e.g., display 411, 412, or 413 in FIG. 55) is exposed to the space of the cabin, a display region of the display may be changed depending on a user's sitting position. At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may change a location of the display region of the display (e.g., display 411, 412, or 413 in FIG. 55) in accordance with the user's sitting position.

    [0450] For example, if a user's sitting position changes from a first sitting position (e.g., first sitting position 441 in FIG. 56) to a second sitting position (e.g., second sitting position 442 in FIG. 56), then the processor 407 may change a display region of the display from a first region 461 to a second region 462, as shown in FIG. 64.

    [0451] As another example, if a user's sitting position changes from the second sitting position (e.g., 442 in FIG. 56) to the first sitting position (e.g., 441 in FIG. 56), then the processor 407 may change a display region of the display from the second region 462 to the first region 461. As such, the first region 461 may be a region of the display positioned lower than the second region 462.

    [0452] FIG. 65 illustrates an example of adjusting a tilting angle by a touch input unit according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0453] Referring to FIG. 65, an input device (e.g., input device 200 in FIG. 55) may include a touch input unit (e.g., touch input unit 210 in FIG. 55) for converting a user's touch input into an electrical signal. The touch input unit may be integrally formed with a private display device (e.g., display device 420 in FIGS. 2 and 6) to implement a touch screen. The touch input unit may be disposed in at least one of a seat, an arm rest, or a door.

    [0454] The input device 200 may further include a tilting mechanism. The tilting mechanism is able to physically move. The tilting mechanism may operate based on a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) . The tilting mechanism may include a drive unit, a power conversion unit, and a power transfer unit. The drive unit may generate power. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. The power conversion unit may convert the generated power into power suitable for moving the touch input unit 210. The power transfer unit may transfer the converted power to the touch input unit 210.

    [0455] At least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to adjust a tilting angle of the touch input unit 210 in accordance with a sitting position.

    [0456] For example, when data on a first sitting position 441 is acquired, at least one processor (e.g., the processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the tilting mechanism such that the touch input unit 210 forms a flat state with a neighboring structure (e.g., a seat, an arm rest, and a door). In this case, a tilting angle may be a relatively small angle of tilt (e.g., 0 degrees). In this case, the touch input unit 210 may be in a first state 210a.

    [0457] As another example, when data on a second sitting position 442 is acquired, at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the tilting mechanism such that the touch input 210 is tilted. The tilting mechanism may tilt the touch input unit 210. In this case, the tilting angle may be a relatively larger angle of tilt (e.g., equal to or greater than 1 degree and equal to or smaller than 90 degrees). The touch input unit 210 may be in a second state 210b. As such, the second state 210b may be a state in which the touch input unit 210 is tilted greater than in the first state 210a.

    [0458] FIG. 66 illustrates an example of raising and lowering a jog dial device according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0459] Referring to FIG. 66, an input device (e.g., input device 200 in FIG. 55) may include a jog dial device which includes a gesture sensor, and which is retractable from at least one portion of a seat, an arm rest, or a door. In some implementations, on an upper surface of the jog dial device, a manipulation guidance image may be displayed. The manipulation guidance image may be removed in accordance with a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55). On a side surface of the jog dial device, a manipulation guidance image may be displayed. The manipulation guidance image may be removed in accordance with a control signal from the processor 407.

    [0460] The input device 200 may further including an escalating (raising and lowering) mechanism. The escalating mechanism may operate based on a control signal from at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55). The escalating mechanism may include a drive unit, a power conversion unit, and a power transfer unit. The drive unit may generate power. The drive unit may include at least one of a motor, an actuator, or a solenoid. The power conversion unit may convert the generated power into power suitable for moving the jog dial device. The power transfer unit may transfer the converted power to the jog dial device.

    [0461] The processor 407 may provide a control signal so as to raise or lower the jog dial device in accordance with a sitting position.

    [0462] For example, when data on a first sitting position (e.g., first sitting position 441 in FIG. 56) is acquired, at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the escalating mechanism such that the jog dial device forms a flat state with a neighboring structure (e.g., a seat, an arm rest, and a door). The escalating mechanism may raise the jog dial device. In this case, the jog dial device may be in a first state 221a. In the first state 221a, the jog dial device may function as the mechanical input unit 230.

    [0463] As another example, when data on a second sitting position (e.g., second sitting position 442 in FIG. 56) is acquired, at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may provide a control signal to the escalating mechanism such that the jog dial device protrudes compared to a neighboring structure. The escalating mechanism may lower the jog dial device. In this case, the jog dial device may be in a second state 221b. In the second state 221b, the jog dial device may function as the gesture input unit 220.

    [0464] In some implementations, when a sitting position is lowered (e.g., when the first sitting position 441 is changed to the second sitting position 442), the processor 407 may provide a control signal such that a manipulation guidance image displayed on the upper surface of the jog dial device is displayed on the side surface of the jog dial device.

    [0465] FIG. 67 illustrates an example of dividing a display region of a display based on the number of occupants according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0466] Referring to FIG. 67, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the display device (e.g., display device 410 in FIG. 55) to divide a display region of the display (e.g., display 411, 412, or 413 in FIG. 55) based on the number of occupants.

    [0467] For example, as illustrated with reference numeral 471 in FIG. 67, when one user is onboard, at least one processor (e.g., processor 407 in FIG. 55) may display a content in the entire region of the display. As illustrated with reference numeral 472, when a first user and a second user are onboard, the processor 407 may divide the display 411, 412, or 413 into a first region and a second region. Then, the processor 407 may display a first content for the first user in the first region and a second content for the second user in the second region. As illustrated with reference numeral 473, when the first user and the second user request the same content, the processor 407 may display the same content in the entire region of the display 411, 412, or 413.

    [0468] FIGS. 68 and 69 are diagrams referred to for explaining a vehicle car-sickness alleviating system according to an implementation of the present disclosure. FIG. 68 illustrates an example of a first display, and FIG. 69 illustrates an example of a third display.

    [0469] Referring to FIGS. 68 and 69, in some implementations, a display system (e.g., display system 400 in FIG. 55) may operate as a vehicle car-sickness alleviating system. In such implementations, the display system 400 performing a car-sickness alleviating operation may be referred to as the car-sickness alleviating system 400.

    [0470] The car-sickness alleviating system 400 may include an interface unit 406, at least one light output region 2410, and at least one processor 407. The car-sickness alleviating system 400 may further include at least one of an input device 200, an imaging device 250, a communication device 300, a sound output unit 490, a memory 408, or a power supply 409. The description provided with reference to FIGS. 55 to 67 may apply to description about each component of the car-sickness alleviating system 400.

    [0471] The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with at least one electronic device installed in the vehicle 10. The interface unit 406 may receive information on a state of the vehicle 10 from at least one sensor installed in the vehicle 10. The interface unit 406 may receive information on a state of the vehicle from at least one Electronic control Unit (EUC) installed in the vehicle 10.

    [0472] For example, from at least one electronic device, the interface unit 406 may receive at least one of the following: information on a stopped state of the vehicle 10, information on a driving speed of the vehicle 10, information on a steering direction of the vehicle 10, information on an upward or downward movement of the vehicle 10, and information on a heading direction of the vehicle 10. The interface unit 406 may receive driving situation information of the vehicle 10 from at least one electronic device. For example, the interface unit 406 may receive, from at least one electronic device, information on a geographical feature of a road on which the vehicle 10 is traveling.

    [0473] In some implementations, the interface unit 406 may exchange signals with the seat system 600. The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with a seat position adjusting mechanism included in the seat system 600. The seat position adjusting mechanism may adjust a position of a seat based on a signal from the processor 407.

    [0474] The interface unit 406 may exchange signals with the communication device 300 that performs wireless communication with the mobile terminal 390.

    [0475] The at least one light output region 2410 may be disposed around at least one display screen. The at least one light output region 2410 may be mechanically integral with a display screen. Together with at least one display screen, the at least one light output region 2410 may forms at least one of the displays 411, 412, and 413 of the display device 410. In this case, the at least one light output region 2410 may be implemented in at least one region of the displays 411, 412, and 413.

    [0476] In some implementations, the at least one light output region 2410 may be mechanically detachable from a display screen. The at least one light output region 2410 may include at least one light source. The light source may operate based on a control signal generated by the processor 407. It is preferable that the light source is a surface light source.

    [0477] In some implementations, a rear seat may be defined as a seat on which a user sits toward a forward direction of travel of the vehicle 10. A front seat may be defined as a seat on which a user sits in a rearward direction of travel of the vehicle 10.

    [0478] In some implementations, at least one display 411 may include a rear seat display 411a and a front seat display 411b. Although FIG. 68 illustrates only the first rear seat display 411a and the front seat display 411b included in the first display 411, even each of the second display 412 and the third display 413 may include a rear seat display and a front seat display.

    [0479] The rear seat display 411a may face a direction that is opposite to the forward direction of travel of the vehicle 10. The rear seat display 411a may be disposed to allow a user in a rear seat 2452 to view a corresponding screen. The at least one light output region 2410 may include: a first light output region 2411 disposed on the left side of the rear seat display 411a with reference to the forward direction of the travel of the vehicle 10; and a second light output region 2412 disposed on the right side of the rear seat display 411a with reference to the forward direction of travel of the vehicle 10.

    [0480] The front seat display 411b may face the forward direction of travel of the vehicle 10. The front seat display 411b may be disposed to allow a user in the front seat 2451 to view a corresponding screen. The at least one light output region 2410 may include: a third light output region 2413 disposed on the left side of the front seat display 411b with reference to the forward direction of travel of the vehicle; and a fourth light output region 2414 disposed on the right side of the front seat display 411b with reference to the forward direction of travel of the vehicle 10.

    [0481] The processor 407 may receive information on a state of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device via the interface unit 406. Based on the information on a state of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to the light output region 2410 so as to change a pattern of light emitting from the light output region 2410. By changing a pattern of light to be output, it is possible to allow a user to recognize movement of the vehicle. Accordingly, car sickness occurs when the user views a display screen may be alleviated.

    [0482] The processor 407 may receive information on a stopped state of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on the information on a stopped state of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may provide a control signal such that changing a pattern of light emitting from the light output region 2410 is stopped. In some implementations, based on information on a stopped state of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may provide a control signal such that a pattern of light emitting from the light output region 2410 is changed at a predetermined speed. While the vehicle 10 remains in a stopped state, the processor 407 may stop changing a pattern of light or may change the pattern of light at a predetermined speed so as to allow a user to recognize the stopped state of the vehicle 10.

    [0483] The processor 407 may receive information on a driving speed of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on the information on a driving speed of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may adjust a speed of changing a pattern of light emitted from the light output region 2410. For example, the processor 407 may adjust a light pattern changing speed in proportion to the driving speed of the vehicle 10. Based on information on a change in the driving speed of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may adjust a speed of changing a pattern of light emitted from the light output region 2410. For example, the processor 407 may adjust a light pattern changing speed in proportion to a change in the driving speed of the vehicle 10.

    [0484] The processor 407 may receive a driving speed of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on information on the driving speed of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may adjust a length of a light emitting region in the light output region 2410. For example, the processor 407 may adjust the length of the light emitting region in the light output region 2410 in proportion to a driving speed value of the vehicle 10.

    [0485] The processor 407 may receive information on steering of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on information on a steering direction and a degree of steering of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may adjust a width of a light emitting region in the light output region 2410.

    [0486] In some implementations, depending on a steering direction of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may select at least one of a light output region disposed on the left side of a screen or a light output region disposed on the right side of the screen.

    [0487] In some implementations, the processor 407 may adjust a width of a light emitting region of the selected light output region in proportion to a degree of steering of the vehicle 10.

    [0488] For example, when information on steering to the left is received, the processor 407 may increase a width of a first light output region 2411 disposed in the rear seat display 411a. In this case, the processor 407 may decrease or maintain a width of a second light output region 2412 disposed in the vicinity of the rear seat display 411a.

    [0489] As another example, when information on steering to the right is received, the processor 407 may increase a width of the second light output region 2412 disposed on the right side of the rear seat display 422a. In this case the processor 407 may decrease or maintain a width of the first light output region 2411 disposed in the vicinity of the rear seat display 411a.

    [0490] As another example when information on steering to the left is received, the processor 407 may increase a width of a fourth light output region 2414 disposed on the right side of the front seat display 411b. In this case the processor 407 may decrease or maintain a width of a third light output region 2413 disposed on the left side of the front seat display 411b.

    [0491] As another example, when information on steering to the right is received, the processor 407 may increase a width of the third light output region 2413 disposed on the left side of the front seat display 411b. In this case, the processor 407 may decrease or maintain a width of the fourth light output region 2414 disposed on the right side of the front seat display 411b.

    [0492] The processor 407 may receive information on upward or downward movement of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on the information on upward or downward movement of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may change a location of a light emitting region of a light output region. The processor 407 may change the location of the light emitting region in a direction opposite to a direction of the upward or downward movement of the vehicle 10.

    [0493] For example, when a front wheel of the vehicle 10 is raised by a road surface object (e.g., a bump) and accordingly information on raised movement of the vehicle 10 is received, the processor 407 may change a location of a light emitting region 2410 in the light output region 2410 downwardly. For example, when a front wheel of the vehicle 10 is lowered by a road surface object and accordingly information on lowered movement of the vehicle 10 is received, the processor 407 may change a location of a light emitting region in the light output region upwardly.

    [0494] The processor 407 may receive information on a geographical feature of a road from an electronic device. The processor 407 may display, on at least one region of a display screen, a graphic object corresponding to the information on the geographical feature of the road. By displaying the graphic object corresponding to the information on the geographical feature of the road, it is possible to allow a user to recognize the geographical feature and to anticipate movement of the vehicle 10 caused by the geographical feature, thereby alleviating the user's car sickness.

    [0495] The processor 407 may receive information on at least one of acceleration, deceleration, or steering in response to a geographical feature of a road from an electronic device. The processor 407 may display, on at least one region of a display screen, a graphic object corresponding to information on at least one of acceleration, deceleration, or steering. By displaying the graphic object corresponding to the information on at least one of acceleration, deceleration, or steering, it is possible to allow a user to recognize movement of the vehicle 10, thereby alleviating the user's car sickness.

    [0496] While displaying a graphic object related to a video conference on at least one region of a display screen, the processor 407 may provide a control signal so as to change a pattern of light emitted from a light output region.

    [0497] The processor 407 may transmit data on change of a pattern of light emitted from a light output region to the mobile terminal 390 via the interface unit 406 and the communication device 300. When the mobile terminal 390 is positioned in the cabin 100 and a user viewing the mobile terminal 390 is detected, the processor 407 may transmit data on change of a pattern of light to the mobile terminal 390. By changing a pattern of light, the mobile terminal 390 may alleviate car sickness of the user.

    [0498] The processor 407 may receive information on a state of the vehicle 10 from an electronic device. Based on the information on the state of the vehicle 10, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to a seat position adjusting mechanism via the interface unit 406 to adjust a position of a seat in a direction different from a direction of an inertial force of the vehicle 10. The processor 407 may provide a control signal to the seat position adjusting mechanism via the interface unit 406 to keep a seat horizontal. When it is determined that a user is viewing a display screen, the processor 407 may provide a control signal to adjust a position of a seat. In doing so, the user may feel as if the vehicle 10 is not moving, and thus the user's car sickness may be alleviated.
