  1. Driver Engagement/Status Monitoring Technologies for Vehicle Automation Applications

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: 151FH1

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech and its partners, UMTRI and Delphi Automotive, propose to develop DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system ...

  2. Advanced Rapid Non-destructive test method to determine chemical composition of concrete materials in the field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    NMR offers comprehensive capabilities for quantitative investigation of the chemistry, structure and deterioration conditions of concrete. Single-sided NMR provides opportunities for nondestructive, spatially resolved field evaluation of concrete. A first-generation single-sided NMR system was developed in Phase I project, and its potential for investigation of concrete deterioration mechanisms wa ...

  3. Research and Development of a Game Based technology and Database to Train Pre-Drivers, Young Drivers, and Older Drivers to Detect Traffic Hazards

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    Recent research suggests there are opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. For example, the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles among 16 year old drivers is some ten times higher than it is among those between the ages of 45 and 55. However, hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accompli ...

  4. Engineering microbial co-cultures for efficient production of a high-value biopolymer from bioprocessing by-products of industrial crops

    SBC: ECOVIA RENEWABLES INC.            Topic: 88

    The past decade has seen remarkable progress in the development of biobased fuel and chemical production. Biobased fuels and chemicals could create substantial economic benefits for farmers and rural communities, since biomass feedstock production and conversion to biobased products are predominantly rural activities. However, substantial challenges exist and achieving economic viability of large- ...

  5. Determination of best candidates for novel orally delivered therapeutic candidates to combat spread of coccidiosis in poultry

    SBC: US BIOLOGIC            Topic: 83

    Avian coccidiosis is the major parasitic disease of poultry that can result in the deaths of millions of birds in a short time. Prophylactic medication and live parasite vaccines are employed as therapeutics. The development of parasite strains resistant to drug treatments, and immune-evasive mutations introduced in response to live parasite treatments will soon limit the effectiveness. The USDA A ...

  6. SCICAST Stimulating Community Involvement by Cultivating Screencast Technologies

    SBC: Inquiry Technologies, LLC            Topic: 86

    Achievement levels of U.S. K-12 students continue to decline compared with those of students in many foreign countries - especially in math and science. Based on current U.S. standards alone, two-thirds of our 8th grade students lack proficiency in core disciplines related to science, math, and reading. This same data for many of our resource-limited rural school districts is even more troubling. ...

  7. Leaf-specific post-emergent herbicide application

    SBC: CONCURRENT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Glyphosate had been used for decades as a pre-emergence herbicide in commercial agriculture. The introduction of herbicide-resistant GMO soybeans and other herbicide-resistant crops made glyphosate the most popular herbicide for grain farmers in the U.S. As the use of glyphosate in post-emergence applications increased, several important weeds, among them Palmer amaranth or pigweed (Amaranthus pal ...

  8. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...

  9. An improved bioassay for the surveillance of dioxins in the U.S. food supply

    SBC: 490 BIOTECH INC            Topic: 85

    Dioxin and other dioxin-like chemicals are persistent environmental pollutants that threaten human and animal health due to their stability in the environment and their ability to accumulate in the food chain toward eventual human consumption. Incidents of dioxins being found in the food and animal feed chain have led to numerous recalls with consequent impacts on human and animal health as well a ...

  10. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...
