  1. Integrated Power Generation for Small Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Engine Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD08UM5

    This program will integrate a lightweight, high efficiency alternator with a quiet, fuel efficient and high power density heavy fuel engine. The electrical power source uses a proprietary, compact and very high power-to-weight alternator using rare earth permanent magnets. It is scalable from 0.5 to 70 kW and larger. MAI''s alternator will be integrated with Engine Research Associates (ERA) Mig ...

  2. Cost Effective, Power Efficient, Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents.  Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems.  Several solutions have been proposed but none could satisfy requirements of transportation authorities.  Central Signal's research and development, ...

  3. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: LARRY HILL CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react. To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in the queue. Even if mandat ...

  4. Low-Cost, Full-Field, Surface Profiling Tool for Mechanical Damage Evaluation

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines.  The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks.  Currently used techniques for assessing dents are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service.& ...

  5. A Higher Performance Traffic Detector Built on SmartSensor HD and Multi-Beam Radar Technology

    SBC: WAVETRONIX LLC            Topic: 091FH3

    Wavetronix currently sells the SmartSensor HD radar detection which is the highest performance above ground detector currently available.  However, the count, speed and classification accuracy can be significantlly improved by employing multi-beam radar technology which we have recently developed.  Multi-beam radar technology allows multiple radars to be used cost effectively inside a si ...

  6. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited.  Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained.  In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting.  In this sys ...

  7. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined.  The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life.  Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and ...

  8. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations.  This project will deliver an individualized Fatigue Management Program (FMP) technology for trucking operations th ...

  9. Solar Roadways

    SBC: Solar Roadways            Topic: 091FH5

    Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels:  structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon.  The roadway will generate electricity, become our nation's power grid, make all-electric vehicles practical, and transport rainwater to desired locations.  Collecting solar energy for just four hours/day would produc ...

  10. Dynamic Non-contact 3D Measurement System for Rollover Testing

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: 07NH2

    Photon-X is proposing to develop a 3D roof imaging system to monitor vehicle roof deformation during vehicle rollover testing.  The system will provide photographic resolution imagery with the ability to track the dot pattern on the vehicle roof.  The Photon-X spatial phase 3D imaging system will provide an accurate visible record of roof deformation with position accuracy of 1mm and vel ...
