  • Publication number: 20220297121
    Abstract: Disclosed is an approach to differentiating between different particle types in samples flowing through microfluidics chips. A sample may have an initial proportion of a first cell type to a second cell type. An illuminating light source may emit a coherent light at the sample, and light leaving the chip in a first direction may be detected using a first light detector, and light leaving the chip in a second direction (e.g., orthogonal to the first direction) may be detected using a second light detector. The detected light may be fluorescence. An orientational feature of a plurality of cells in the sample may be determined based on the light detected by the detectors. Based on the orientational features and the detected light, a biasing operation may be performed for each cell in the sample to obtain a modified proportion of cell types in the sample.

    Abstract: Methods that expand the properties of laser-induced graphene (LIG) and the resulting LIG having the expanded properties. Methods of fabricating laser-induced graphene from materials, which range from natural, renewable precursors (such as cloth or paper) to high performance polymers (like Kevlar). With multiple lasing, however, highly conductive PEI-based LIG could be obtained using both multiple pass and defocus methods. The resulting laser-induced graphene can be used, inter alia, in electronic devices, as antifouling surfaces, in water treatment technology, in membranes, and in electronics on paper and food Such methods include fabrication of LIG in controlled atmospheres, such that, for example, superhydrophobic and superhydrophilic LIG surfaces can be obtained.

  • Publication number: 20220253059
    Abstract: A method for controlling a robotic vehicle in a delivery environment includes causing the robotic vehicle to deploy from an autonomous vehicle (AV) at a first AV position in the delivery environment. The method further includes localizing, via a robotic vehicle controller, an initial position within a global reference map using a robot vehicle perception system, receiving, from the AV, a 3-dimensional (3D) augmented map and localizing an updated position in the delivery environment based on the 3D augmented map and the global reference map. The robot vehicle perception system senses obstacle characteristics, and generates a unified 3D augmented map with robot-sensed obstacle characteristics. The method further includes generating a dynamic path plan to a package delivery destination using the unified 3D augmented map, and actuating the robot vehicle to the package delivery destination according to the dynamic path plan.
