  1. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  2. Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Assessment Tool

    SBC: Global Learning Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The demand for commercial motor vehicle drivers is expected to grow. Motor carriers will hire an estimated 400,000 drivers a year for growth and turnover. For motor carriers, the challenge is how to avoid hiring potentially unsafe drivers or to identify specific driver weaknesses and provide appropriate training.This project seeks to create a driver assessment tool that will help motor carriers ...

  3. A System for Automated Analysis of Driver Glance Videos

    SBC: IMAGECORP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ImageCorp, Inc. and its subcontractor M-Vision, Inc. propose to design and conduct a feasibility study of a machine vision system dedicated to the automatic analysis of the drivers¿ glancing direction. This system will be able to determine the beginning and end of the glancing activity in the video sequence, indexed by the subject (functional area of interest), duration, and direction of glance. ...

  5. Aircraft Wiring Integrity Verification using Pseudo-random Binary Sequence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our approach to aircraft wiring inspection is to inject a special type of low level probe signal into the cable to be tested. The system response to this special input can be used to give the complete transfer function of the cable. Our hypothesis is that incipient failures in the cable will be detectable as subtle changes in that transfer function, including discontinuities which cause signal r ...

  6. Development of a Pedestrian Alert System (PAS)

    SBC: OPTIMUS Corporation            Topic: N/A

    OPTIMUS and Dunlap have been working together to develop for NHTSA a system analogous to the one sought in 00-FH1. The Problem Driver Detection System (PDDS) is a traffic safety, alert system consisting of a watch-sized transmitter worn by the subject and a low cost , receiver/antenna unit for police cars, which together alert the police to nearby driving while suspended subjects. Having this de ...

  7. A New Nanocomposite Rubber Liner for Tires

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Halobutyl rubber is used as an inner liner for tubeless automotive tires because of its low permeability to gases and good compatibility with other tire materials. However, at high pressures and over prolonged time periods, tires leak. Factors such as under-inflation and heat are major contributors to tire damage. While the tires are slowly losing air pressure, consumers also do not maintain c ...

  8. Recycling of Portland Cement Concrete

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to investigate a concept of a shock producing component that will be the basis of a machine to remove deteriorated concrete pavement. The principal has been proven feasible, but further demonstration has to be accomplished to proceed with application and expense of continued development of a Road Remover/Recycler. This machine will move continuously on a lane width of pavement a ...

  9. NESSI (New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative) Geographic Information System (GIS)

    SBC: Stefan Claesson & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Submerged archaeological sites contain a significant part of our historical legacy-one that is increasingly threatened by development, vandalism and natural forces. In recognition of that legacy, the New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative (NESSI) has been planned in order to identify and preserve the maritime archaeological resources of the region. A computerized database, specifically a Geogra ...

  10. Digital Waveform-based System for AE Measurement for NDT

    SBC: Dvp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop a multi-channel, real-time data acquisition, storage, and analysis system for acoustic emissions (AE). The proposed digital recorder will provide 12 independent channels of input with each channel supporting acquisition, storage, and processing of up to 20,000 AE events at a 10 MHz sampling rate. Our architectural approach will exploit the inherent parallel ...
