  1. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  2. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: Automa Aurora Inc.            Topic: 121FT1

    The project develops a flexible (flex) route bus system, as an alternative to fixed route system plans, to enhance a transit rider’s experience by routing buses in real-time based on rider demand. The architecture leverages existing smart phone, wireless, Internet and GPS technologies but drives innovation through online routing algorithms based on recent theoretical work in optimization and mac ...

  3. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  4. Non-Destructive Test Method for Rapid Determination of the Chemical Composition of Concrete in Field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    While thorough assessment of concrete chemistry is vital to evaluating the health of (transportation) infrastructure systems, the costly and time-consuming nature of available chemical analysis methods limit their applications. A nondestructive test method will be developed for thorough evaluation of concrete chemistry and deterioration conditions at different depths. An analytical chemistry metho ...

  5. Low Friction hybridSil Coatings for Preventing Vehicle Rollover on Concrete Barriers

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 121FH1

    The objective of this DoT SBIR program is to establish a technical foundation enabling the rapid commercial integration of low friction HybridSil™ coatings on concrete barriers for drastic reductions in vehicle rollover potential. Phase I coatings would have immediate utility within a broad spectrum of concrete barriers designs with readily spray or paint depositions capabilities in traffic env ...

  6. Smart Pipeline Network- Cased Pipe for Monitoring and Sensor System

    SBC: Odyssian Technology, L.L.C.            Topic: 121PH3

    This PHMSA SBIR focuses on the development of a new multi-channel cased in pipe design with internal support structure that will allow access along its entire axial length while adequately securing the carrier pipe to the containment pipe. When combined with the Seal Sensor System (proposed separately), this technology will allow a Smart Pipeline Network having integrated sensor networks that pro ...

  10. Innovative Solutions to Effectively Enforce Anti-texting Rules on Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Drivers

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 121FM2

    Distracted driving could have severe repercussions leading to loss of life, loss of property, and expensive lawsuits. While there can be many reasons for the driver to get distracted, research shows that the probability of accidents from texting/web-surfing while driving is an order of magnitude higher. Although federal law prohibits texting by operators of commercial vehicles and has strict penal ...
