  • Patent number: 10896074
    Abstract: An interactive processing device according to an embodiment acquires one/more items' information for predetermined operation through interaction with a user, and includes one/more itemized-processing-units and an interaction-control-unit. The itemized-processing-units corresponds to the items. The interaction-control-unit controls the interaction collaboratively with the itemized-processing-units. The interaction-control-unit transmits user-input information to each itemized-processing-unit. Each itemized-processing-unit extracts a candidate for to-be-acquired information and transmits the candidate to the interaction-control-unit with likelihood information of being the to-be-acquired information. The interaction-control-unit determines a candidate having first-threshold-satisfying likelihood as information of an item corresponding to the candidate-transmitted itemized-processing-unit. When undetermined information item exists, the interaction-control-unit outputs inquiry for the item information.

  • Publication number: 20210003204
    Abstract: In a breather structure of a transmission, a gear chamber of the transmission is disposed between an engine and an electric motor control device for an electric motor, and a breather piping is inserted into a breather hole in an upper wall of the gear chamber. When viewed from above, in a vehicle width direction, a part of an intake system member and the electric power control device are overlapped together, and a part of the intake system member and the gear chamber are overlapped together. Therefore, a direction of water splashed up from a road surface and flowing forward is changed downward so that the breather hole is easily covered with water. However, since an atmosphere opening part of the breather piping is disposed above the electric motor chamber, even if the breather hole is covered with water, a breather function is not lost.
