We add four SAE J2735 messages:… more
Abstract:International Electronic Machines (IEM) Corp. will develop the Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System, or IDEAS. In Phase I, IEM will examine two different approaches for achieving the goal of accurate, reliable dimensioning and classification of moving vehicles at highway… more
Abstract:During Phase I, IEM developed a proof of concept for a Smart Grade Crossing Monitor (SGCM) using multispectral imaging technology for enhanced monitoring of highway rail grade crossings to improve safety by providing warnings of significant objects present in the crossing. The Phase I work… more
Abstract:This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings. The system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system. The presence of a defect in a coating… more
Abstract:Improved traffic signal timing and traffic incident response are two of the most cost-effective ways of reducing urban arterial network congestion. System-wide analysis of its cause is required to mitigate congestion or excessive traffic delay. Network wide, synchronized and real-time traffic flow… more
Abstract:There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
