  • Patent number: 10228594
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses an array substrate, a display panel and a display device. The array substrate includes gate regions, gate lines, data lines, pixel electrodes and common electrode lines. The common electrode lines and the gate lines have the same extension direction, the pixel electrodes are located in regions defined by adjacent gate lines and adjacent data lines, the gate lines traverse the gate regions in the extension direction that are located in the same row as the gate lines, and the pixel electrodes have a gap from the gate lines at ends thereof closer to the gate lines. As such, a portion of the gate region that extends to the pixel region has a reduced area and hence a reduced edge length. This way, during the cleaning of the active layer after formation, less active layer metal may remain at the edges of the gate region. Thereby, the array substrate fabrication process is improved, and a product yield rate of the array substrate is increased.

  • Patent number: 10169989
    Abstract: Disclosed aspects relate to transportation vehicle traffic management. A traffic controller detects a first traffic state parameter value for a first lane. In response to detecting the first traffic state parameter value, the traffic controller establishes a first broadcast of a first movement value (e.g., speed, acceleration, direction). The first movement value may indicate a first movement pattern for a first set of vehicles in the first lane. In response to establishing the first broadcast of the first movement value, the traffic controller detects a second traffic state parameter value for the first lane. In response to detecting the second traffic state parameter value the traffic controller modifies the first broadcast of the first movement value. The modified first movement value may indicate a second movement pattern for the first set of vehicles in the first lane.
