See the following U.S. Patent numbers:
• U.S. Patent No. 8,382,350
• U.S. Patent No. 8,596,840
• U.S. Patent No. 8,894,256
• U.S. Patent No. 9,108,569
• U.S. Patent No. 9,308,859
• U.S. Patent No. 9,469,246

What do they do? They allow a previously unseen opened vehicle door with a pedestrian standing outside that vehicle door to be seen at night. The dark ages of not seeing an opened vehicle door that has resulted in an estimated one million pedestrian deaths since the inception of the motor vehicle are now over.

Note: A person outside an opened motor vehicle door that is killed by another vehicle driver is recorded a pedestrian death, not a vehicle occupant death. In the year 2014, not one single death of a pedestrian was reported in combination with an unseen opened vehicle door as the contributing cause by FARS (Fatal Accident Reporting System) in the United States.
