  • Publication number: 20200239024
    Abstract: Various examples are directed to systems and methods for routing autonomous vehicles. A system may receive an indication of a roadway element associated with a routing graph for routing autonomous vehicles and may determine an impact score for the roadway element. The impact score may describe an impact of applying a routing graph modification to the routing graph to modify routing to the roadway element. Based at least in part on the impact score, the system may apply the routing graph modification to the routing graph to generate a constrained routing graph and generate a route for a first autonomous vehicle based at least in part on the constrained routing graph. The system may instruct the first autonomous vehicle to begin traversing the route.

  • Patent number: 10495869
    Abstract: The examples herein relate to assembly techniques and structures for sealing and lateral pressure compensation techniques that can be utilized in, for example, an electrowetting cell. The electrowetting cell can include a substrate that supports a well filled with a liquid. The electrowetting cell can include a control channel electrode to control the liquid via an electric field and a circuit connection to drive the control channel electrode. A seal is coupled to a spacer to seal the well between the substrate and the transparent cover. An expansion space, exterior to the well, is formed with the coupling of the seal and the spacer. As the liquid or the gas thermally expands or contracts, the seal compensates laterally by deforming sideways in an empty space of the expansion space.
