  1. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail crossing, at which there is an unusually abrupt change in the level of the road's surface as it crosses the tracks, pose a risk of low ground clearance vehicles becoming stuck on the tracks. Advanced Technology and Research Corporation (ATR) proposes to develop an active detection and advance warning system. The system has three major functional componenets: measurement, decision, ...

  2. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 131FR1

    The problem of low ground clearance vehicles being stuck at tracks of highway-rail grade crossings (HRGC) poses a severe safety risk. Vehicles with long wheelbases and low ground clearance are more likely to be stuck on high-profile HRGCs. Currently there is no commercially available automated system that detects and computes the necessary critical dimensions of low ground clearance vehicles (LGCV ...

  3. Low Cost Bridge Structural Monitoring Technology / Turning Structural Monitoring Data into Decision Making Information

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

    This is a supplemental Phase II proposal submitted to DOT for additional funding and performance period extension of the on-going DOT Phase II project (contract # DTRT57-10-C-10027). The overall objective of the Supplemental Phase II effort is to complete the development of the sensor system capable of continuously monitoring the integrity of bridge structures, conduct field operation validation ...

  4. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside inspection, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their sequences attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN id ...

  5. Very High Speed Third Rail Insulator Cleaning

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    This Phase IIB proposal will accelerate the commercialization of the Phase II project that developed the Vohrtex insulator cleaner. The Phase II cleaner used self-spinning nozzles which require oversized offset jets to provide sufficient reaction force to make the nozzle spin. The oversized jets damage the surface finish of the insulators. This Phase IIB project will use small pneumatic, electric ...

  6. Automatic Video-based Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1501

    Understanding task performance and crew behavioral health is crucial to mission success and to the optimal design, development, and operation of next-generation spacecraft. Onboard resources, like a conventional 2D video camera, can capture crew motion and interaction; however, there is a critical need for a software tool that achieves unobtrusive, non-invasive, automatic analysis of crew activity ...

  7. UAS Demand Generation and Airspace Performance Impact Prediction

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A501

    The key innovation of this effort is the development of future traffic demand for Uninhabited Aerial Systems (UAS) given the various missions they intend to fly, and thereafter populating a data warehouse with these projected flights that can be marketed to the aviation community. We propose developing one flight demand set for each of twenty-five future years from the 2015 through 2040, incorpor ...

  8. AirCore Reusable InSitu Sampler for CO2 and Trace Gas Measurements

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: S108

    A novel design for an in situ air sampling sensor for CO2 and trace gases is proposed. The sensor, named AirCore, provides the advantages of existing in situ sensors (e.g. high resolution) but eliminates possible biases in analysis that often originate from imperfect measurement condition. The AirCore provides a significant savings in cost and weight while increasing the capabilities of existing i ...

  9. Cloud-Based Analytics, Store and Query System (CASQUE) for Data-Intensive Scientific Processing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: S503

    While it has become apparent that we can and will collect data at unprecedented rates thanks to a wide range of high-resolution high-throughput sensors, it has also become apparent that we do not have the algorithms and tools to satisfactorily analyze Big Data. Cloud computing as an infrastructure (e.g., Amazon Web Services), as a platform (e.g., Google Apps), and as a software ecosystem (e.g., Ha ...

  10. A Flexible Fault Management Architecture for Cluster Flight

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S505

    Emergent Space Technologies proposes to develop a flexible, service-oriented Fault Management (FM) architecture for cluster fight missions. This FM architecture will include algorithms to be run on each cluster module for fault detection, isolation, and recovery, software to be used at a ground station to direct recovery actions, and protocols for communication of fault information between cluster ...
