  • Patent number: 10766361
    Abstract: A multistage wheel drive includes primary and secondary planetary stages, in which the ring gear of the primary (i.e., input-side) planetary stage is formed from a single machined part which also includes the planet gear carrier of the secondary (i.e., output-side) planetary stage. This dual-function “combination” component includes a splined exterior surface which interfaces with a correspondingly splined interior surface on the spindle in order to rotationally fix the combination component to the spindle. This arrangement ensures concentricity between the primary and secondary planetary stages, while allowing a desired amount of radial tolerance between the spindle, the combination component, and the hub of the wheel drive. In addition, the present arrangement can be produced efficiently and inexpensively.

  • Publication number: 20190325485
    Abstract: A seemingly infinite and continuous stream of online content can be tracked by a movement tracker that can track an amount of movement of a stream of content. For example, such a movement tracker can track the amount of movement per session of a client-side application, such as per session of a web browser. In an example, the tracking of the movement can occur by tracking a measurable parameter of the stream that indicates the amount of movement, such as scroll distance. The movement tracker may also be configured to determine user interaction data according to the tracked amount of movement.

  • Publication number: 20190291618
    Abstract: Inter alia, the invention relates to a support bracket (12) with two bar regions bracket on a vehicle seat, with a traverse (15) connecting the bar regions pivotally supporting a head contact part (11) of a headrest (10), and with locking means of a latch (17) for blocking pivoting the head contact part (11). The special feature is that the traverse (15) is made of plastic or a composite material and comprises attachment regions for securing to a support rod (13a, 13b) or is integrally connected with bar regions.

  • Patent number: 8842177
    Abstract: Object tracking includes an audio model that receives at least two audio input signals and a video model that receives a video input. The audio model and the video model employ probabilistic generative models which are combined to facilitate object tracking. Expectation maximization can be employed to modify trainable parameters of the audio model and the video model.

  • Publication number: 20070114001
    Abstract: An investment casting pattern is formed by forming a metallic first core element including at least one recess. The first core element is engaged to at least a mating one of an element of the die and a second core element. The recess serves to retain the first core element relative to the mating one. The die is assembled and a sacrificial material is introduced to the die to at least partially embed the first core element. The recess may be pre-formed prior to cutting the first core element from a larger sheet of material.
