  1. GeoRad-Next Generation High Resolution, Long Range, Flexible and Modular Ground Penetrating Radar

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 122FH5

    Intelligent Automation Inc (IAI) in collaboration with IDS North America proposes to develop the next generation Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) technology called GeoRad. We will leverage an existing state –of-the-art dual-frequency dual-polarized massive array GPR and improve its accuracy so that wires, and pipes can be mapped. The accuracy of the position of the ground penetration radar directl ...

  2. Three dimensional detection ranging and mapping of utilities and underground infrastructure at intersections using step-frequency groung penetrating radar without traffic control

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 122FH5

    A method to detect, locate, and map utilities and underground infrastructure is proposed at traffic speeds based on recent advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SFGPR). Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imaging of subsurface civil infrastructure elements such as pavement structure and inductive loop detectors embedded in the pavement. The proposed r ...

  3. Innovative Solutions to Effectively Enforce Anto-texting Rules on Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) Drivers

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM2

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative anti-texting system which does not prevent the use of any cell phone but can detect and record the texting and driving behavior for enforcement instead. This proposal lays out a concrete plan to develop a robust and cost effective system that can detect, identify and record the instances when a driver is texting (or voice calling without ha ...

  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, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their order attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN identification and ...

  5. Examination of HM Portable Tanks within Transportation System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 112PH1

    Portable tanks used to transport hazard materials are often subject to forces and stress, thermal cycle loading, and shock/vibration throughout the transportation process. It is an interest to assess what effects may occur during loading and unloading from one shipping mode to another and what conditions the HM packages will experience in that specific mode. An in-situ sensor system is proposed he ...

  8. Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Assessment Tool

    SBC: Global Learning Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The demand for commercial motor vehicle drivers is expected to grow. Motor carriers will hire an estimated 400,000 drivers a year for growth and turnover. For motor carriers, the challenge is how to avoid hiring potentially unsafe drivers or to identify specific driver weaknesses and provide appropriate training.This project seeks to create a driver assessment tool that will help motor carriers ...

  9. A System for Automated Analysis of Driver Glance Videos

    SBC: IMAGECORP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ImageCorp, Inc. and its subcontractor M-Vision, Inc. propose to design and conduct a feasibility study of a machine vision system dedicated to the automatic analysis of the drivers¿ glancing direction. This system will be able to determine the beginning and end of the glancing activity in the video sequence, indexed by the subject (functional area of interest), duration, and direction of glance. ...

  10. Aircraft Wiring Integrity Verification using Pseudo-random Binary Sequence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our approach to aircraft wiring inspection is to inject a special type of low level probe signal into the cable to be tested. The system response to this special input can be used to give the complete transfer function of the cable. Our hypothesis is that incipient failures in the cable will be detectable as subtle changes in that transfer function, including discontinuities which cause signal r ...
