Title: IMAGING UNIT, AND VEHICLE WINDSHIELD AND VEHICLE EQUIPPED WITH SAME
Abstract:
This imaging unit (100) includes: an imaging device (110) having an imaging lens (112); a housing (120) that stores the imaging device (110) and has an opening (130) allowing light incident on the imaging lens (112) to pass therethrough; and an extension part extending from the opening (130) along an imaging direction (N) of the imaging device (110). The extension part has an extension surface whereon a dispersion unit (136) is provided, which scatters light via structures thereon. Each structure is inclined toward the imaging direction (N) with respect to an axis normal to the extension surface, and has a surface structure that reflects the light parallel to a first vertical surface including an optical axis (L) of the imaging lens (112) and orthogonal to the extension surface in at least two mutually different directions inclined with respect to the first vertical surface with the extension surface in plan view.
