  • Publication number: 20210140485
    Abstract: A rolling-element bearing assembly includes first and second bearing rings that form a bearing interior between them and a plurality of rolling elements disposed in the bearing interior and a seal assembly for sealing the bearing interior. The seal assembly includes a seal carrier and a seal element having at least one primary seal lip for sealing the bearing interior and a secondary seal lip for sealing against external contamination. The seal element is connected to the seal carrier such that the primary seal lip and the secondary seal lip abut axially against an axial end surface of the second bearing ring.

  • Patent number: 10991360
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for generating customized text-to-speech voices for a particular application. The method comprises generating a custom text-to-speech voice by selecting a voice for generating a custom text-to-speech voice associated with a domain, collecting text data associated with the domain from a pre-existing text data source and using the collected text data, generating an in-domain inventory of synthesis speech units by selecting speech units appropriate to the domain via a search of a pre-existing inventory of synthesis speech units, or by recording the minimal inventory for a selected level of synthesis quality. The text-to-speech custom voice for the domain is generated utilizing the in-domain inventory of synthesis speech units. Active learning techniques may also be employed to identify problem phrases wherein only a few minutes of recorded data is necessary to deliver a high quality TTS custom voice.

  • Patent number: 9162257
    Abstract: In a method for distributing packages or similar dispatched articles, packages that are to be transported from a private and/or commercial sender to an addressee are acquired in a collecting location. In this collecting location, the packages are provided with a package code that has electronically detectable data, and subsequently, the packages are distributed and/or delivered by means of transport vehicles. According to the invention, the collected packages are supplied to a HUB center that is connected to several collecting locations and in the HUB center the respective package codes are expanded with measurement data (length, width, height, weight) of the package to a package routing code. These package routing codes of all packages are supplied to a central computer and the packages are arranged in accordance with a route planning that can be dynamically optimized by the central computer into a sequence that is sorted in accordance with distribution zones.
