  1. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels 3/16/2018 Ultrasound-based technology to nondestructively determine fracture toughness of pipeline steels will be developed. Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challeng ...

  2. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...

  3. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: NAVMAR APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR7

    Rail line intrusion events, initiated by dismounted individuals on foot or in vehicles, often result in devastating collisions with a train, with outcomes unfavorably to the intruder. A need exists for a locomotive mounted advanced remote detection system that can autonomously detect and characterize an intruder, at a distance, alerting the operating engineer to take corrective action. Navmar Appl ...

  4. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...

  5. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    This proposal leverages our current DOT-funded SBIR Phase II project developing software to assist truck drivers and companies to fatigue optimize driver scheduling and route planning. This project will build a set of web-services specially designed to provide objective quantitative feedback to truck drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers about fatigue from fatigue stressors common in trucking ...

  6. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  7. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    High performance steels were developed in a cooperative program between the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), and the U.S. Navy Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center. HPS70W high strength steel is currently being used in bridge structures. HPS is stronger than conventional 70W steel and has less than 15% of the sulfur and 60% of th ...

  8. Developing a Standard Integrated Framework for Transit Assest Management Information

    SBC: Encada LLC            Topic: 131FT2

    Transit Agency Information required for managing Service centers on resources and assets that need to be available to operate the transit service as designed. An opportunity exists to design an Integrated Framework providing Service delivery and Maintenance Management Information to quantify the reliability and availability of the assets. This framework will incorporate modeling of the asset inven ...

  9. Environmentally Friendly Low Friction Coating for Concrete Barriers

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH1

    Resodyn Corporation is proposing a material and application system that will create a low friction coating on concrete median barriers. The advanced material developed for the low friction coating is an affordable, tough, weather resistant, and environmentally friendly copolymer. The proposed application concept is for truck mounted equipment that enables a single pass application of the coating ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 Department of Transportation
  10. Viability of Crowd-Source Transit Information Systems

    SBC: View Update Media LLC            Topic: 121FT1

    The company is commercializing a mobile social computing system named Tiramisu (“pick me up” in Italian) that is intended to connect riders and transit service providers. It supports a variety of collaboration mechanisms designed to improve the experience of riders in a transit service and improve the service provided by service operators. The system has been designed using current knowledge i ...
