  1. Video Detection and Image Processing Systems for Traffic Law Enforcement

    SBC: DIGITAL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Traffic Systems, Inc. has previously developed and sells commercially an Intelligent Camera System that interprets video images of the road traffic and computes traffic parameters including: Queue Length (Vehicle count), Flow Speed (miles per hour), Density (vehicles per mile), volume (vehicles per hour), Lane Occupancy (percent of lance occupied) and Headway (average distance| feet betwe ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...

  7. Development of a Pedestrian Alert System (PAS)

    SBC: OPTIMUS Corporation            Topic: N/A

    OPTIMUS and Dunlap have been working together to develop for NHTSA a system analogous to the one sought in 00-FH1. The Problem Driver Detection System (PDDS) is a traffic safety, alert system consisting of a watch-sized transmitter worn by the subject and a low cost , receiver/antenna unit for police cars, which together alert the police to nearby driving while suspended subjects. Having this de ...

  8. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  9. THE USE OF NEW MATERIALS FOR ROADSIDE SAFETY HARDWARE

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NEW MATERIALS ARE BEING DEVELOPED EVERYDAY AND ARE REVOLUTIONIZING PRODUCTS AND PROCESSES AT AN ASTOUNDING RATE. IN RECENT YEARS, THE ROADSIDE SAFETY APPURTENANCE FIELD HAS BEEN AFFECTED AS WELL, AS NEW MATERIALS HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO PRODUCE IMPROVED DESIGNS IN A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS. IN RECENT YEARS PLASTICS, CERAMICS, HIGH STRENGTH FIBERS AND COMPOSITES HAVE BECOME MORE WIDELY USED IN INDUSTRY ...

  10. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATOR'S ASSISTANT (AIIA)

    SBC: Micro Computer Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    TO FACILITATE TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER OF ON-LINE INFORMATION CONCERNING FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION'S R&D PROGRAMS, AUTOMATIC METHODS OF INFORMATION INDEXING MUST BE EMPLOYED. THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH HUMAN RESOURCES TO ADEQUATELY GATHER AND CLASSIFY THIS ABUNDANCE OF DATA. IN ADDITION, AUTOMATEDMEANS OF INTERPRETING THE APPLICABILITY OF NEW TECHNOLOGY AND DETERMINING UNDER WHICH FAA PROGRAM THE TECHN ...
