Abstract:With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of asphalt and concrete pavement so that timely maintenance can maximize their usefulness. This SBIR will develop a sensor that can be embedded within concrete or asphalt, which can measure moisture,… more
Abstract:To improve safety and efficiency on high-speed signalized intersections a dilemma zone protection system has been designed to automatically configure site-specific protection boundaries on both main-street approaches by continously tracking vehicles within up to 1000 feet of each stop line. … more
Abstract:Wavetronix currently sells the SmartSensor HD radar detection which is the highest performance above ground detector currently available. However, the count, speed and classification accuracy can be significantlly improved by employing multi-beam radar technology which we have recently… more
Abstract:Traffax Inc. proposes a system based on Bluetooth point-to-point communications to anonymous detect vehicles, establish travel times, and develop accurate Origin & Destination (O-D) matrices. Preliminary research performed at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation… more
Abstract:More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents. Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems. Several solutions have been proposed but none… more
Abstract:One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments. Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA. Currently, the FRA… more
Abstract:The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train. The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation… more
Abstract:EMC2''s Phase II proposal focuses on continuing development of "Soft Crack Arrestors" through additional key material property, detailed analytical refinement of the design, and full-scale pipe validation testing. This material testing will be done over a range of temperatures to… more
Abstract:This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings. This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system. The presence of a defect in a… more
Abstract:Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react… more
Abstract:Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use. Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly… more
Abstract:Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative and inexpensive solutions using In-roadway detectors and embedded pavement flashing light warning system to solve the dilemma zone (DZ) problem. Detection is performed by a pair of inductive loops in each travel lane, 800 to 1200 ft… more
Abstract:The ability to monitor the condition of a bridge structure to detect damage or changes in condition at early stages is of significant interest to many bridge owners. Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized… more
Abstract:Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines. The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks. Currently used… more
Abstract:While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined. The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining… 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.
