|20150257235||LIGHT EMISSION DEVICE AND LAMP UNIT - A light emission device includes an organic EL panel and a molding resin. In the organic EL panel, an organic EL light emission portion is formed on a substrate. The organic EL panel is flexible. The molding resin shapes the organic EL panel so that the organic EL panel is in a curved state.||09-10-2015|
|20150252975||VEHICULAR LAMP - A vehicular lamp includes a plurality of light-emitting elements arranged such that light-emitting surfaces of the light-emitting elements face toward a front of the vehicular lamp; and a projection lens having a plurality of projection regions that face the respective light-emitting elements, and project light source images of the respective light-emitting elements facing the projection regions, to the front of the vehicular lamp. A lamp rear surface of the projection lens has protruding portions provided in the respective projection regions, the protruding portions protruding toward the respective light-emitting elements facing the protruding portions. A lamp front surface of the projection lens is flatter than the lamp rear surface.||09-10-2015|
|20150251586||VEHICULAR HEADLAMP APPARATUS - A vehicular headlamp apparatus includes: a headlamp that illuminates ahead of a vehicle; light distribution pattern switching means for switching light distribution pattern of the headlamp between a plurality of light distribution patterns which include, at least, a high beam and a low beam; detecting means for detecting a forward vehicle present in front of the vehicle; controlling means for controlling the light distribution pattern switching means based on a detection result of the detecting means; and turning radius acquiring means for acquiring a turning radius of the own vehicle during running. Moreover, when the turning radius of the own vehicle acquired by the turning radius acquiring means is less than a predetermined value, the controlling means inhibits the switching of the light distribution pattern of the headlamp to a higher side.||09-10-2015|
|20150241008||VEHICLE LAMP UNIT - A projection lens is disposed so that light emitted from a light source passes the projection lens. A shade is disposed in rear of the projection lens so as to block a part of the light emitted from the light source. The projection lens includes a first region and a second region. The first region has a first light scattering property. The second region has a second light scattering property lower than the first light scattering property. The shade and the projection lens are disposed so that a part of light projecting an edge of the shade as a peripheral edge of a light distribution pattern passes through the first region and another part of the light projecting the edge of the shade passes through the second region.||08-27-2015|
