  1. Driver Engagement/Status Monitoring Technologies for Vehicle Automation Applications

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: 151FH1

    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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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/ ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. INFLATABLE PADDING FOR HARD SURFACES IN VEHICLE INTERIORS

    SBC: Concept Analysis Corp            Topic: N/A

    OCCUPANT INJURY CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED BY THE INCORPORATION OF PADDING OF HARD SURFACES IN VEHICLE INTERIORS. SEVERAL INTERIOR HARD SURFACES SUCH AS ROOF HEADER, A-PILLAR, AND B-PILLAR ARE DIFFICULT TO PAD DUE TO LIMITED SPACE. WAT IS NEEDED IS AN INFLATABLE PLASTIC BI-LAYER THAT COULD BE ATTACHED TO HARD SURFACES AND GIVE ACCEPTABLE WEAR AND APPEARANCE WHEN UNINFLATED, YET BE INFLATABLE DUR ...

  8. STUDY AND EVALUATION OF FIBER REINFORCED DOWELL BARS FOR USEIN HIGHWAYS

    SBC: Etc Engineers Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOWEL BARS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USED AS AN IMPORTANT LOADTRANSFER MECHANISM ON OUR FEDERAL HIGHWAYS. A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM OCCURRS WITH THE USE OF THESE BARS DUE TO RUST AND RESULTANT SPALLING AND CRACKING CONCRETE. COMPOSITE REINFORCING BARS (CRB) HAVE BECOME WIDELY USED FOR CRACK CONTROL IN MANY REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES EXPOSED TO AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS. A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DATA IS AVA ...
