What might be meaning of Egress Lighting in an automotive application?

I work on a Slave Electronic Control Unit.  It's Microcontroller based.  
A request has recently come up for the this slave unit to support time delayed access/egress lighting.

Thank you!

"Egress" is when you get out of the car.  "Ingress" would be getting in.  So they want the lights to stay on while they get out of the car but turn off a little afterwards.  Probably a delay on the door closing.

I would take it literally:
How much time after you exit the vehicle and close/secure the vehicle.


1: the action or right of going or coming out
2: a place or means of going out : exit
