  1. Reading Barcode signs to Support V21 Safety

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH1

    Reading Barcode Signs to Support V21 Safety 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas with limited access to Information and ...

  2. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH4

    An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management 3/20/2018 Planned or unplanned traffic events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. It was estimated that 60% of congestions are non-recurrent and 15% of incidents are secondary to the primal accidents. Thus local or regional Traffic Management Centers (T ...

  3. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void in System in Fresh Concrete Air void parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. We have demonstrated the feasibility and viability of using an acoustic method to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete, the proposed solution is b ...

  4. Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Proposal title: Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments Additional passenger fatalities/injuries can occur during derailments involving interaction with wayside structures. Analogously, automobile fatalities often result from interaction of vehicles with roadside structures; personnel hazard reduction is a key design criterion for roadsid ...

  5. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  6. Production of Refined Cane Sugar from Sugar Mills without an Attached Refinery

    SBC: CHOU, CHI            Topic: 85

    The one-step cane sugar process respondsto the USDA NIFA SBIR Program Priorities in regards to agriculturally related manufacturing technology and energy efficiency. The technology developed from this project will (1) reduce the energy and water consumed per cane sugar product, (2) provide an economic alternative for producing U.S. Food Grade sugar worldwide, (3) eliminate hazardous solid waste pr ...

  7. Stackable farming for economically and environmentally sustainable urban food production

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Lack of fresh, year-round produce contributes to illness for the 13.5 million Americans who in live "food deserts," those mostly urban areas where little but fast and processed food is available. Growing urban produce is possible using controlled environment agriculture (CEA), including greenhouses and artificially lighted "plant factories," but has been difficult to do affordably and flexibly. Bu ...
