  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 ...

  7. Voice Activated Cockpit for General Aviation

    SBC: The Wesson Group            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project will be to develop a prototype voice-activated cockpit (VAC) that will allow a pilot operating in marginal VMC to manipulate controls via voice commands and receive voice feedback for verification of settings. In so doing, we strive to create a system where tasks usually accomplished by looking at an item and manually entering data, turning knobs,, or pushing buttons will ...

  8. Wireless Magnetic Workzone System

    SBC: VehicleSense Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I we will develop a work zone collision system consisting of "smart barrels" and a central communications computer. The "smart barrels" will incorporate magnetic sensors, an LED display, and wireless communications resulting in a unit that can accurately measure the speed of passing vehicles and relay this information to adjacent barrels and the central communications computer. The ...
