  1. Fast Real Time Positioning using GNSS

    SBC: SUB CARRIER SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH2

    A well-established method of differential GNSS corrections, referred to as real time kinematic (RTK), is applied to raw signals which can be obtained for inexpensive automotive grade GNSS designs. This technical approach to position determination is historically found only in higher cost survey grade devices. Today’s automotive class designs can achieve positional accuracies of slightly over one ...

  2. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Despite heavy vehicles representing a small portion of vehicles on the roads, they have significant influences on pavement, safety, environment, energy consumption, and the performance of traffic system. Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicle data on freeways. Because WIM systems are costly and sophisticated, how to effectively utilize the valuable W ...

  3. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  4. Reconfigurable Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 94

    A preliminary design of a mobile receiver system for intra-cloud lightning detection, mapping, and tracking was completed and analyzed during the Phase I program. The direction-finding (DF) receiver design is small enough for use on small UAVs and utilizes the full VHF spectrum. The lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LITMUS) design will be finalized, fabricated, assembled, and demonstrated durin ...

  5. Automated Detection, Tracking Measurement, and Classification of Fish Observed by Underwater Cameras

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 92

    We propose to develop a system that can automatically detect, track, measure, and classify fish seen in video collected by stationary underwater cameras. Our approach makes use of a novel method for detecting motion that can mitigate false alarms due to swaying underwater vegetation. We propose a novel technique for tracking the fish in three spatial dimensions allowing for improved knowledge of ...

  6. Delivering In-Vehicle Messages in Temporary Work Zones

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 122FH1

    The primary objective of SBIR Phase II is to design and validate the data flow inside a smart work zone system by designing a framework that would enable exchanging work zone related messages between remote traffic management center server TMCS and the vehicles on the road. The framework will possess the following capabilities: • Ability to broadcast Traveler Information Messages (TIM) as well ...

  7. Intelligent Ridesharing in Real-time

    SBC: Axiom xCell, Inc.            Topic: 111FH4

    The development of a wireless mobile cloud platform that includes dynamic ride matching; utilizing in-vehicle systems and user interface; with supporting connectivity to social networks and HOV/HOT lane tolling infrastructure, will create a critical enhancement to enable an increase in ridesharing on the nation’s roadways. The objective of this Phase II research project is the development of a w ...

  8. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: 122FA1

    A study conducted by The Boeing Company of world-wide commercial jet transport accidents found the most common events to be loss of control associated with an inability of pilots to recover from upsets and unusual attitudes. A key component in some of these events is pilot spatial disorientation (SD). Improved pilot training in these abnormal flight conditions, including the ability of training si ...

  9. Traffic Surveillance System using Heterogeneous Sensor Technologies for National Park Service

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 141FH5

    Continued population growth and expanded commercial development have already push the daily traffic on National Park Service(NPS) Parkways exceeds design capacity especially around the urban area. The Parkways around urban areas usually serve as commuting routes for commuters and as scenic routes for visitors. Heavy traffic in rush hours, high travel speeds during non-peak periods, and condition o ...

  10. Coordinated Data and Scoring for Usage Based Insurance

    SBC: VEHICLE DATA SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: 141FH2

    This SBIR phase I project will extend an existing collaboration with multiple insurance companies to identify a common prototype data set and risk scoring algorithm that are independent of the devices deployed for data collection. Collection devices include some commonly used by various telematics service providers, as well as mobile devices. Parameters will include at a minimum deceleration and ...
