  • Patent number: 10665233
    Abstract: A method for operating a server system that includes a plurality of servers for processing a voice command recorded by a recording device connected, via an interface, to the server system includes, in response to the recording of the voice command, reading in a session activation signal from the recording device; checking if there is an association between the session activation signal and a session ID; if it is established that there is the association between the session activation signal and the session ID, ascertaining an availability of a prior server that previously processed a session assigned to the session ID; and activating the session on the prior server if it is available, but, if it is not available, then activating the session on a free server of the server system by loading the session from a session database. The voice command is received by the corresponding server during the activation of the session or even subsequent to the activation of the session, in order to be processed.

  • Patent number: 10666836
    Abstract: A multi-sensor system, made up of at least two sensor units, in which the sensors may be activated at predefined target points in time on the basis of internal clocks mounted decentrally in the sensor units, in order to record data. Thus, the triggering of the sensor measurements and the assignment of measured data at the corresponding measuring points in time take place decentrally in the sensor units. So that all measuring points in time are based on a common time, the individual sensor units of the multi-sensor system may be synchronized with the aid of a synchronization signal.
