  2. Reading Barcode signs to Support V21 Safety

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH1

    Reading Barcode Signs to Support V21 Safety 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas with limited access to Information and ...

  3. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH4

    An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management 3/20/2018 Planned or unplanned traffic events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. It was estimated that 60% of congestions are non-recurrent and 15% of incidents are secondary to the primal accidents. Thus local or regional Traffic Management Centers (T ...

  4. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void in System in Fresh Concrete Air void parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. We have demonstrated the feasibility and viability of using an acoustic method to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete, the proposed solution is b ...

  5. Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Proposal title: Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments Additional passenger fatalities/injuries can occur during derailments involving interaction with wayside structures. Analogously, automobile fatalities often result from interaction of vehicles with roadside structures; personnel hazard reduction is a key design criterion for roadsid ...

  6. Development of an Acoustic Method for Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Air parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. Currently there is no method or device that can accurately meet such requirements. We propose to develop an acoustic air void measurement system that can be used in the field to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete. The propo ...

  7. Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer for Railway Wood Ties Remanufacturing (BFRP-WTR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 171FR1

    The service life of the wood ties has been diminishing with increased axle loads with higher rail car speeds and frequencies. The depletion of wood and creosote induced contamination are of great environmental concerns. It is of a substantial interest to develop an effective recycling/remanufacturing methodology for creosote-treated wood ties. A composite wood tie design is proposed here, with use ...

  8. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...

  9. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail grade crossings, at which there is an abrupt change in the level of the road surface as it crosses the tracks, present a severe hang-up risk to vehicles with low ground clearance. In Phase I and II, ATR developed a conceptual design for a Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection System (LGCVDS) to actively prevent such accidents. The LGCVDS is able to use a priori crossing profile data ...

  10. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    The Next Generation Equipment Committee (NGEC) developed a standard for specifying the use of an Ethernet based digital train line (DTL) network to replace the COMM line for passenger trains. These specifications are PRIIA 305‐919 Digital Train Line Hardware and PRIIA 305‐920 Digital Train Line Software. The intent Is to eventually allow for the improvement of passenger train control. DTL spec ...
