  1. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of MySidewalk mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. The MySidewalk application utilizes advances in social networks and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I and II research was facilitated by inputs from City of Colle ...

  2. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase II, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase II culminated in the installation of one full modular mini-roundabout in both Georgia and Virginia. In addition, 3 modular mini-roundabouts were commercially sold and installed in Canada prior to the SBIR funded sit ...

  3. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: 180NH2

    Current access to and analysis of the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) dataset requires significant time and technical skill. Data analysis tools are often general-purpose, designed to support the analysis of any dataset, and do not easily support the types of questions many transportation and safety engineers ask of the FARS data. Visualizations can help users understand relationships betwe ...

  4. A System to Educate the Public¿s About the Nation¿s Highway System

    SBC: DACAR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Dissemination of information has proved a complex problem. However, with the advent of a global communication tool-the Internet-it now becomes feasible to provide information right into the home, business or educational institution. The key, is to provide the information in such a way that the public will want to look at it. In this proposal, we maintain that the public is interested in federal ...

  5. Roadway Pavement Condition Sensor

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIUR (Small Business Innovative Research) proposal is based on work accomplished by Foster-Miller, Inc. and Battelle Memorial Institute during a prior Phase I SBIR program under contract DTRS57-99-C-00090. The purpose of the Phase I program was to develop an in-vehicle sensor to measure roadway surface conditions and, from these measurements, determine the coefficient of friction b ...

  6. Innovative Emergency Passenger Window System for Rail Vehicles

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop an improved emergency passenger window design to facilitate egress and rescue. Two innovative concepts are proposed, each of which addresses many limitations of currently available window systems. One utilizes an embedded low-friction cable which contracts the gasket, assisted by internal mechanical energy storage. The other uses a low energy pyrotechnic cord completel ...

  8. Utilization of Native Grass and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources.

  9. Active Automated Diagnostic System for Aircrafts

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft wire damage can be caused by aging, maintenance, vibration, exposure to moisture, and many other factors. However, current wire maintenance and inspection methods are often insufficient to detect these frequent problems. Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an aircraft wire maintenance system that detects wiring problems and analyzes the type of fault. This system, called Active Aut ...

  10. Light Deflection Wind Mapper

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A new optical sensor to map wind speeds with millimeter resolution will be detailed and demonstrated. The instrument works by detecting the deflection of light by gas density fluctuations. The measurement can be either spatially averaged over the propagation path of the beam or spatially localized in three dimensions by monitoring the cross-correlation between the signals from two intersecting l ...
