  1. RLS & Associates, Inc. 190-FT1 Submission

    SBC: RLS & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 190FT1

    In the passage of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94), Congress challenged the U.S. DOT and the Federal Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) to develop a cost allocation technology to account for disparate federal reporting requirements and maintain separation of funding sources by trip for non-emergency medical transportation. The U.S. DOT notes the ...

  2. Automated Driving Systems (ADS) Test Data Interface

    SBC: Sea, Ltd.            Topic: 190NH1

    SEA is proposing a technical evaluation and feasibility study for a Test Data Interface that could send command signals to a vehicle via CAN, as well as receive diagnostic information from the vehicle. This technology could be used to provide any number of vehicle test protocols, including the evaluation of advanced and autonomous driving features.SEA believes that a Test Data Interface will be a ...

  3. Demonstration of a Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System Using Asset-Based Change Detection

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. To help address these issues, machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago; however, the technology has not achieved its expected potential due to the uncontrolled nature of rail environments. Recent findings have s ...

  4. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  5. Use of High-Resolution Imaging Techniques for Condition Assessment and Damage Detection of Bridges

    SBC: S C SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 180FH2

    This proposal consists of an innovative integrated solution for damage diagnosis of bridge structures using a non-contact image-based measurement methodology. High-resolution and regular camera systems will be used to capture the bridge movements and the traffic passing the bridge, respectively. Computer vision techniques will be used to extract the deflection time-histories of the bridge as well ...

  6. Integrated Sensor Unit for Signalized Intersections

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 180FH3

    The DOT seeks an integrated unit capable of identifying and tracking individual vehicles with high accuracy using multiple vehicle detection inputs, including video images, radar-based detection, and vehicle-to-everything radio signal inputs (DSRC, cellular-V2X), with a deep learning-based engine to fuse collected data. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to contin ...

  7. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  8. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  9. Machine Vision System to Support Vehicle to Infrastructure (V21) Safety Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH1

    To keep drivers and passengers of vehicles safe, especially in rural areas with limited access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the DOT and the commercial automotive industry are keenly interested in machine vision based V2I and CAV technology to perform functions such as navigating assistance in areas where GPS or detailed maps are unavailable, caution and warning systems capab ...

  10. Innovative technologies for nondestructive determination of fracture toughness for pipeline steels in transportation infastructure

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    In the inspection and quality assurance framework, coercimetry refers to non-destructive testing of mechanical properties based on measurements of the magnetic characteristics of a metal. This technology relies on the continuous and noticeable (100-400%) increase in the magnitude of the coercivity, while the metal passes from as-delivered to its final state. As both magnetic and mechanical propert ...
