  1. Signal State Transition Software Development

    SBC: Advanced Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Advance Technologies is proposing a formal software development effort to translate the State Transition Logic algorthims developed under NCHRP Project 3-66. We are proposing the use of free software such as GNAT, Linux and Umbrello to assist us in the software development. Advanced Technologies has been developing real time, safety critical, Ada83/Ada95 software for twenty years. We plan to use U ...

  2. Phase II: EcoSod An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growth-to be ...

  3. Meis System for Inspection of Pipeline Coating

    SBC: HD LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Coating disbond on buried pipelines contineus to be a major problem world-wide. Disbonds left unrepaired promote both corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking, which are much more costly to repair. Improved inspection technology is currently needed to detect and characterize disbonds. HD Laboratories, Inc. proposes to refine and test a novel method of detecting and assessing coating disbonds and ...

  4. Integration of Advanced Inductive Signature Vehicle Detectors with an Advanced Transportation Controller running under the Real Time Linux Operating System

    SBC: Inductive Signature Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to determine what outputs from the SSAJ measurement system would be suitable for traffic control applications, to determine what the "real time" needs and accuracies are for measurements of signature, speed, acceleration, and jerk (SSAJ), to integrate the output of our IST-222 Standard Signature Output Card with and Advanced Transportation Contorller (ATC) and finally to demonstrate pro ...

  5. High Resolution Electromagnetic Imaging and Decision Support for Pipeline Life Management

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal relates to the application of electromagnetic imaging of pipelines and coatings for damage detection, condition assessment and enhanced decision support and life management. JENTEK's inductive Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM) sensor and MWM-Arrays have demonstrated sensitivity and resolution capability superior to conventional nondestructive examination technology in a number o ...

  6. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Railroad Freight car safety and maintenance cost is directly related to knowledge of the actual braking force provided by a brake shoe. If the brake force is too low, safety is at risk. If the brake shoe is replaced before the end of it's lifetime to ensure safety, maintenance and thus operating costs are increased. Currently there is no system in place to monitor brake shoe force during train ...

  7. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

    In Phase I, we have developed new pedestrian detection and tracking techniques based on stereo images. Our system comprises a number of key modules including (1) disparity layered thresholding method that can be used to extract the potential pedestrian(s) layer by layer; (2) pedestrian detectiona and discrimination using 3D convex feature that can be used to detect the pedestrian in each disparity ...

  8. Enhancing the Usability of the TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at the University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  9. Pipe Disbondment Detection and Coating Assessment Using the Dynamic Wavelet Fingerprinting

    SBC: SOLERS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Existing pipe inspections ae incapable of reliably detecting coating disbonds. Conventional above ground surveys cannot detect disbonds because of shielding conditions, and traditional guided wave inspection systems are unable to reliably detect subtle non-axisymmetric flaws. Finally, most of the advanced ultrasound technology in industry has been focused on inline inspection systems which are i ...

  10. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: N/A

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The technique uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imag ...
