  1. Safe Track Protection and Advance Warning System

    SBC: WAVETRONIX LLC            Topic: 082FH1

    To improve safety and efficiency on high-speed signalized intersections a dilemma zone protection system has been designed to automatically configure site-specific protection boundaries on both main-street approaches by continously tracking vehicles within up to 1000 feet of each stop line.  The system will further customize and refine protection by continously estimating the probability of a ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Anonymous Traffic Probes for Travel Time and O-D using Bluetooth IDs

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Traffax Inc. proposes a system based on Bluetooth point-to-point communications to anonymous detect vehicles, establish travel times, and develop accurate Origin & Destination (O-D) matrices.  Preliminary research performed at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, Indiane Department of Transportation, and Purdue University identified the use of consumer ...

  4. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments.  Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA.  Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current sy ...

  5. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train.  The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature f ...

  6. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  7. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by le ...

  8. A novel detection and warning system to mitigate dilemma zone (DZ) issues

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative and inexpensive solutions using In-roadway detectors and embedded pavement flashing light warning system to solve the dilemma zone (DZ) problem.  Detection is performed by a pair of inductive loops in each travel lane, 800 to 1200 ft from intersection.   The detection system includes prediction of vehicle travel time to the in ...

  9. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

    The ability to monitor the condition of a bridge structure to detect damage or changes in condition at early stages is of significant interest to many bridge owners.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a bridge structural health monit ...

  10. 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.& ...
