  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. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  5. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  6. Stress and Geometry Imaging from Outside the Pipeline

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as well as at other critical locations (dents, bends, etc.). JENTEK is uniquely positioned to deliver ...

  7. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner were selected for use. We have demonstrated that our pedestrian counting system can count multiple pedestrians walking in a large group, maintain individual tracks even when some pedestrians walk in unpredictable patterns or leave the crosswalk prematur ...
