  • Patent number: 11979716
    Abstract: A hearing aid system for selectively conditioning audio signals associated with a recognized object may include at least one processor. The processor may be programmed to receive audio signals acquired by a wearable microphone; analyze the received audio signals to obtain an isolated audio stream associated with a sound-emanating object in the environment of the user; determine an audioprint from the isolated audio stream; and use the audioprint to retrieve from a database information relating to the particular sound-emanating object. Based on the retrieved information, the processor may cause selective conditioning of at least one audio signal received by the wearable microphone from a region associated with the at least one sound-emanating object; and cause transmission of the at least one conditioned audio signal to a hearing interface device configured to provide sounds to an ear of the user.

  • Patent number: 11897518
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to navigational systems for vehicles. In one implementation, such a navigational system may a first output from a first sensor and a second output from a second sensor; identify a target object in the first output; and determine, based on the first output, a detected driving condition associated with the target object and whether the condition triggers a navigational constraint. If the navigational constraint is triggered, the system may cause a first navigational adjustment. If the navigational constraint is not triggered, the system may determine whether a representation of the target object is included in the second output. If the representation of the target object is included in the second output, the system may cause a second navigational adjustment. If the representation of the target object is not included in the second output, the system may forego any navigational adjustments.
