  • Publication number: 20210136922
    Abstract: An ultramicro circuit board based on an ultrathin adhesiveless flexible carbon-based material and a preparation method thereof. The method comprises the steps of: S1. depositing to form a PI film on a surface of a quantum carbon-based film through a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reaction, and manufacturing a flexible circuit board base material with a quantum carbon-based film/PI double-layer composite structure; and S2. manufacturing a high-frequency ultramicro circuit antenna on the flexible circuit board base material through a laser scanning etching method. The preparation method has the advantages of being good in environmental friendliness, high in efficiency, low in manufacturing cost and the like, and the manufactured antenna ultramicro circuit board has the advantages of being high in thermal and electrical conductivity, ultra-flexible, low in dielectric, low in loss and high in shielding performance, which can be applied to 5G equipment.

  • Patent number: 9702714
    Abstract: A method for routing a vehicle for hire includes receiving a request to pick up a passenger at a predetermined time. Information indicating a first location of the passenger is received. The vehicle is routed to the first location at the calculated dispatch time. Information indicating a second location of the passenger is received. It is determined whether the second location jeopardized a timely pickup. The vehicle is rerouted to the second location when it is determined that the second location does not jeopardize the timely pickup. A notification is sent to the passenger warning that the second present location jeopardizes the timely pickup and the passenger is provided with directions on how to move to a location that does not jeopardize the timely pickup when it is determined that the second location of the passenger does jeopardize the timely pickup.
