  1. Signal State Transition Software Development

    SBC: Advanced Technologies, Inc            Topic: 06FH1

    ATI's Phase II effort will consist of developing an open source Signal Control Program Environment (SCOPE). This SCOPE will incorporate either an open source traffic signal control program or a more refined version of the signal control logic ATI developed in our Phase I effort. ATI will develop SCOPE so that the Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance System (CICAS) and Adaptive Control Sys ...

  2. Demonstration of a Low-Cost Vehicle Monitoring System for Tractor Trailers

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 112FM1

    Mainstream has been developing a unique wireless Vehicle Monitoring System (VMS). As discussed in this proposal, prior internally funded efforts have already demonstrated key elements of this decentralized, low-cost, and easy-to-install system. This proposal also contains the results of extensive market research to verify the market demand and identify desirable features. Mainstream's previous ...

  3. Composite Cylinder Life-Cycle In-Service Assessment

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: 101PH1

    Current inspection, maintenance and lifetime estimation practices for composite cylinders have been adopted from earlier NASA research. WavesinSolids LLC are proposing a technological based on an acoustic emission (AE) technique for the in-service testing of composite cylinders. The approach will establish the correlation between AE activity and intensity metrics and the stress intensity factor, a ...

  4. Artificial Intelligence Software to Tutor Literary Braille to the Blind and Visually Impaired

    SBC: Quantum Simulations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Braille is the primary medium of written communication for persons who are blind. Prior research shows that Braille literacy strongly correlates with stronger reading habits and the pursuit of higher education, whereas Braille illiteracy negatively impacts students' academic performance and ability to navigate the everyday world. A recent report found that there has been a dramatic declin ...

  5. Math Education for Adult Learners and College Remediation Using Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Quantum Simulations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Recent international comparative studies report declining levels of numeracy skills among the adult population (16 to 65 year olds) in the United States. When individuals have below basic mathematics skills, they require extensive remediation as adults and in college. The purpose of this project is to extend artificial intelligence methodologies to an on-demand tutor focused on developmen ...

  6. MenuChoice:Nutrition Program for Community-based Group Homes for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    SBC: GOOD NUTRITION IDEAS, LLC            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops a nutrition program, MenuChoice©, for community-based group homes for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD). Adults with IDD experience poorer nutritional health and more nutrition-related secondary conditions than adults without disabilities. These conditions are preventable and modifiable through a safe, healthful diet, but multiple challenges precl ...

  9. Matched Filter Chaos Communications

    SBC: Scieval LLC            Topic: A11aT002

    The use of chaotic hybrid systems has been recently demonstrated in for potential noise-resilient matched-filter communications. A first demonstration at low (audio) frequencies using a combination of analog and digital components has been demonstrated. With this proposal, our objective is to devise a"chaos-on-a-chip"system that can exhibit similar features to those in while operating in the range ...

  10. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications. The Army has identified a need for multi-band imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions among others. Multi-band systems offer enhanced discrimination capability and the ability to perform in adverse conditions (at night, smo ...
