  • Publication number: 20200198444
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for detecting malodor within a cabin of an autonomous vehicle, wherein initiation of a remediation system and/or dispatch of the autonomous vehicle to a service hub for mitigating the malodor is based upon sensor signals that monitor the cabin of the autonomous vehicle. The remediation system can include devices such as an HVAC system or a window, which are operated to reduce the concentration of airborne molecules in the cabin of the autonomous vehicle when the concentration of airborne molecules exceeds an air quality threshold. A dispatch protocol may be initiated to dispatch the autonomous vehicle to a service hub when the malodor is associated with certain predefined incidents or when remediation fails to reduce the concentration of airborne molecules below the air quality threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200189567
    Abstract: The technology relates to determining the current state of friction that a vehicle's wheels have with the road surface. This may be done via active or passive testing or other monitoring while the vehicles operates in an autonomous mode. In response to detecting the loss of traction, the vehicle's control system is able to use the resultant information to select an appropriate braking level or braking strategy. This may be done for both immediate driving operations and planning future portions of an ongoing trip. For instance, the on-board system is able to evaluate appropriate conditions and situations for active testing or passive evaluation of traction through autonomous braking and/or acceleration operations. The on-board computer system may share slippage and other road condition information with nearby vehicles and with remote assistance, so that it may be employed with broader fleet planning operations.

  • Publication number: 20200192403
    Abstract: The technology relates to determining general weather conditions affecting the roadway around a vehicle, and how such conditions may impact driving and route planning for the vehicle when operating in an autonomous mode. For instance, the on-board sensor system may detect whether the road is generally icy as opposed to a small ice patch on a specific portion of the road surface. The system may also evaluate specific driving actions taken by the vehicle and/or other nearby vehicles. Based on such information, the vehicle's control system is able to use the resultant information to select an appropriate braking level or braking strategy. As a result, the system can detect and respond to different levels of adverse weather conditions. The on-board computer system may share road condition information with nearby vehicles and with remote assistance, so that it may be employed with broader fleet planning operations.

  • Publication number: 20200184747
    Abstract: Predictive maintenance and diagnostics for an electronic module of an autonomous vehicle using modular condition monitoring is described herein. A computing system receives a signal from a data logger which monitors a condition of the electronic module of the autonomous vehicle, wherein the signal is indicative of damage accumulation information thereof. The computing system identifies a type of the electronic module and a damage accumulation threshold for the type of the electronic module to generate a predicted maintenance schedule for the electronic module of the autonomous vehicle. The damage accumulation information can be stored in a data store to define the damage accumulation threshold for the type of the electronic module.

  • Patent number: 10666735
    Abstract: The invention concerns computer systems that are specially adapted to propagate content over a dynamic network, substantially in real time, by virtue of the locational proximity of interconnected network-joined Client Computers, at least one of which communicates with an interconnected Client Computer via infrared signal, laser pulse, or radio frequency. Preferably, the content will also be weighted (for example, proximity-weighted, rank-weighted, topic-weighted, query-weighted, time-weighted, location-weighted, locality-weighted, vote-weighted, segment-weighted, geophysically-weighted, etc.). The invention particularly concerns such computer systems that employ more than one such weighting. The invention particularly concerns such computer systems that operate using, or through, mobile devices, particularly for distributed computing applications, including social media applications and communications applications conducted over Restricted Computer Networks.

  • Publication number: 20200162577
    Abstract: A server includes a memory, and a processor communicatively coupled to the memory. The processor is configured to execute instructions to receive a request for content for a client device, match a targeted data to the identification information based on a relevancy factor, and provide the targeted data to a sandboxed application of the client device configured to render the targeted data. The request includes identification information, which is a user identification information or a device identification information for the client device. The identification information is associated with a content identification data or a content identification history generated from preliminary data generated by a networked device associated with the client device.

  • Publication number: 20200123488
    Abstract: Zebrafish are a powerful model for investigating cardiac repair due to their unique regenerative abilities, scalability, and compatibility with many genetic tools. However, characterizing the regeneration process in live adult zebrafish hearts has proved challenging because adult fish are opaque and explanted hearts in conventional culture conditions experience rapid declines in morphology and physiology. To overcome these limitations, we fabricated a fluidic device for culturing explanted adult zebrafish hearts with constant media perfusion that is also compatible with live imaging. Unlike hearts cultured in dishes for one week, the morphology and calcium activity of hearts cultured in the device for one week were largely similar to freshly explanted hearts.

  • Publication number: 20200096471
    Abstract: A method and system for determining a failsafe value for a biosensor having two perimeter electrodes, a distal electrode, and a proximal electrode are disclosed. A liquid measuring medium is applied to a capillary channel of the biosensor. The method includes applying an alternating voltage to the perimeter electrode and the proximal electrode, measuring conductivity to determine a first impedance between the perimeter electrode and the proximal electrode, applying the alternating voltage to the perimeter electrode and the distal electrode, measuring conductivity to determine a second impedance between the perimeter electrode and the distal electrode, determining a value using the first impedance and the second impedance, and providing an error message to the user if the value is out of tolerance. If the value is out of tolerance, then defects or breaks in the electrodes and/or reagent in a reaction area are present and the method disallows the test result.

  • Publication number: 20200067959
    Abstract: Techniques described and suggested herein include various systems and methods for determining risk levels associated with transiting data, and routing portions of the data in accordance with the determined risk levels. For example, a risk analyzer may apply risk classifiers to transiting data to determine overall risk levels of some or all of the transiting data. A traffic router may route transiting data according to determined risk profiles for the data. A sandbox may be implemented to compare, for a given input, expected and observed outputs for a subset of transiting data, so as to determine risk profiles associated with at least the subset.
