  • Publication number: 20220005470
    Abstract: An agent device includes a microphone configured to collect a speech sound inside a vehicle cabin, a speaker configured to output a speech sound inside the vehicle cabin, and a plurality of agent function elements having different functions. Each of the plurality of agent function elements generates a speech sound of an agent that speaks to an occupant of a vehicle on the basis of a meaning of the speech sound collected by the microphone, causes the speaker to output the generated speech sound of the agent. The agent function element serving as a main agent that has a dialogue with the occupant is switched on the basis of content of the speech sound collected by the microphone.

  • Publication number: 20210405297
    Abstract: An embodiment optical body is provided in a propagation path of light between a Si waveguide and an optical fiber. The optical body changes a course of some of radiation mode light, which is emitted from the Si waveguide and propagates in a direction away from an optical axis thereof, to obtain waveguide mode light passing through itself. Thus, the amount of waveguide mode light incident on the optical fiber increases, and the coupling efficiency between the Si waveguide and the optical fiber is improved.

  • Publication number: 20210375684
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a semiconductor device includes forming a support on a side surface of a stack that extends from a substrate. The stack includes a second sacrificial film, plural first sacrificial films and plural silicon (Si)-containing films, wherein one first sacrificial film of the plural sacrificial films is stacked upon the second sacrificial film and the plural sacrificial films and the plural Si-containing films are alternately stacked upon one another, and at least a side of the second sacrificial film is not covered by the support, the one first sacrificial film and the substrate. The method further includes removing the second sacrificial film from the stack to form a space between the substrate and the one first sacrificial film and adjacent to the support, and filling the space with a dielectric film.
