  1. Repurposing Lithium Ion Batteries for Light Duty Stationary Applications

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: 171OS1

    The project team believes that scalable battery modules, a scalable packaging strategy, a scalable BMS design, and a standardized re-manufacturing process are the missing links necessary to establish a robust repurposed and second-life lithium-ion battery supply chain. The modular and scalable approach will also allow Navitas and GBS to serve markets outside of the transportation industry improvin ...

  2. Driver Assistant for Intelligent Safety (DAISY)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: 151FH1009

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low-level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech and its partners, UMTRI and Delphi Automotive, propose to develop DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system ...

  3. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    Accessing a freight locomotive is one of the most basic, daily tasks performed by a railroad engineer. However, this task has historically been difficult due to several factors such as the first step which may be 19 inches above the top of the rail, weather conditions which may make the steps slippery, and the fact that the ground surrounding the locomotive may be uneven or covered in debris or ba ...

  5. Advanced Rapid Non-destructive test method to determine chemical composition of concrete materials in the field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    NMR offers comprehensive capabilities for quantitative investigation of the chemistry, structure and deterioration conditions of concrete. Single-sided NMR provides opportunities for nondestructive, spatially resolved field evaluation of concrete. A first-generation single-sided NMR system was developed in Phase I project, and its potential for investigation of concrete deterioration mechanisms wa ...

  6. Research and Development of a Game Based technology and Database to Train Pre-Drivers, Young Drivers, and Older Drivers to Detect Traffic Hazards

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    Recent research suggests there are opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. For example, the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles among 16 year old drivers is some ten times higher than it is among those between the ages of 45 and 55. However, hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accompli ...

  7. FieldOps: A Unified Approach to UGV Interface Design, Sensor Data Compression, and Supervisory Control Based on Fields of Safe Travel

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3

    This topic addresses the problem of robustly commanding and controlling unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex, unstructured environments. Current approaches to this task rely on dense scene reconstruction from a variety of sensor data such as LIDAR and video imagery. Scene representations are then relayed to a remote human operator who provides commands at varying levels of supervisory con ...

  8. TRUST: Testing Robustness of UAS Safety Technology

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    It is understood that an autonomous unmanned air, ground, or sea vehicles can incur a near infinite decision space that is difficult to capture completely in extensive simulation. The response of these vehicles to untrained environments can potentially have unintended consequences to adversely affect safety. This is of particular concern when these vehicles are considered for collaborative manned/ ...

  9. APU Silencing Technology Development

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: OSD10EP3

    The proposed effort will result in an "universal" fan noise cancellation system for use with high performance fans used extensively in defense applications including auxiliary power unit (APU) applications. Fans are a critical noise source that impact the audible detection range of the platform. The importance of the fan noise for detection continues to increase as other technology improvements ...

  10. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and reduce / eliminate the additional steps required to board the train. An improved anti-skid step wil ...
