  1. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 82

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  2. From Vehicle Performance to Transportation System Performance- System Impacts of Automated Vehicles

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 151FH4

    The rapid development of automated vehicles has attracted a lot of attentions from the public in recent years. Current studies on automated vehicles mainly focus on microscopic simulations with simple network topologies and driver behaviors, and few has considered to incorporate automated vehicles into macroscopic travel demand models for the analysis in a regional network. In this project, we pro ...

  7. Mobile Device Application Component

    SBC: E-Systems Communications Corp.            Topic: 102FH3

    A key capability of Intelligent Transportation Systems is communications between the vehicles and the infrastructure and between the vehicles themselves. In particular, vehicles on the roadways carry a wealth of information on their position and velocity that, when aggregated with that from many other vehicles, provides a rich resource for traffic management. The key component is accurate vehicle ...

  8. A software solution to control bus-bunching using networked, commoditized tablets

    SBC: Via Analytics            Topic: 151FT1

    Bus bunching, the tendency of buses to cluster together, delays passengers, wastes transit agency resources, and makes drivers’ jobs more difficult. To solve this problem, we propose a control system consisting of networked tablets designed to automatically provide drivers with simple guidance based on the positions of other vehicles in the system. This proposal provides a plan to expand the exi ...

  9. Novel Pathway For The Synthesis Of 1-Hexanol From Biomass-Derived Sugars

    SBC: ZYMOCHEM INC            Topic: 88

    1-hexanol is a widely used intermediate chemical with applications in the perfume, food, chemicals ?and polymer industry. It can be dehydrated to make 1-hexene which is widely used a co-monomer for polyethylene applications. Current industrial production of 1-hexanol uses petroleum based feedstocks and involves several steps that are carried out at high temperatures and high pressures, making the ...

  10. Biobased Semiochemical Production From a New American Industrial Oil Crop

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 88

    Semiochemicals, especially pheromones, are of critical importance to integrated pest and vector management. Some pheromones, however, are too expensive, costing over $50,000/kg. This makes them far too costly for many control agencies to use in aggressive management regimes, as the required quantities for effective formulations are high. The development of a synthetic process to convert low cost b ...
