Title: DEVICE, CAMERA APPARATUS, AND METHOD FOR A RAIL VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device and to a method for monitoring a spatial region (12) in the environment of or inside a rail vehicle (1). The device according to the invention comprises a camera apparatus (10) for capturing the spatial region (12), which has a lens arrangement (18), wherein the lens arrangement (18) has an input element (20), which is designed to receive incoming light (22). The device is characterized in that the input element (20) is designed to be movable relative to a surface (32) of the rail vehicle (1), which at least in part delimits the spatial region (12), between a travel position (40) provided for a travel mode of the rail vehicle (1) and a capture position (30), in which the input element (20) is aligned for receiving light (22) from the spatial region (12).
