  1. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail crossing, at which there is an unusually abrupt change in the level of the road's surface as it crosses the tracks, pose a risk of low ground clearance vehicles becoming stuck on the tracks. Advanced Technology and Research Corporation (ATR) proposes to develop an active detection and advance warning system. The system has three major functional componenets: measurement, decision, ...

  2. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicles’ data on the freeways. Because WIM is one of the most costly and sophisticated data collection system, how to effectively utilize the valuable WIM data, monitor WIM stations' performance, and identify out of calibration stations are especially important. In this project, we propose an innovative and yet pract ...

  3. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  4. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 131FR1

    The problem of low ground clearance vehicles being stuck at tracks of highway-rail grade crossings (HRGC) poses a severe safety risk. Vehicles with long wheelbases and low ground clearance are more likely to be stuck on high-profile HRGCs. Currently there is no commercially available automated system that detects and computes the necessary critical dimensions of low ground clearance vehicles (LGCV ...

  5. Small Scale Diesel Generator for Railway Applications

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 122FR1

    Autonomous inspection systems are necessary to increase awareness of track safety and maintenance issues. However, electrical power for these systems is not available under freight railway vehicles. Mainstream Engineering (MEC) proposes development of a small-scale diesel generator with an integrated starter-alternator (ISA) and automated battery charging circuit for this application. The proposed ...

  6. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  7. Transportation System Performance Measurement Using Existing Loop Infrastructure

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 102FH2

    With continuing emphasis on transportation sustainability and fiscal stewardship, utilizing existing loop detector infrastructure to obtain more accurate, reliable and comprehensive traffic system performance measures is desired by many transportation agencies. In Phase I study, we found that the capability of the Inductive Loop Detector (ILD) signature technology to re-identify and classify vehic ...

  8. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 111FH2

    Our goal is to create a demonstrable software system that we call IntelliFusion, which fuses Connected Vehicle data with data from traditional inductive loop detectors and uses this data to improve traffic control at intersections across the country. Our work will improve the safety of intersections and improve the mobility of traffic through adaptive traffic control which uses data produced by I ...

  9. Low Cost Bridge Structural Monitoring Technology / Turning Structural Monitoring Data into Decision Making Information

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

    This is a supplemental Phase II proposal submitted to DOT for additional funding and performance period extension of the on-going DOT Phase II project (contract # DTRT57-10-C-10027). The overall objective of the Supplemental Phase II effort is to complete the development of the sensor system capable of continuously monitoring the integrity of bridge structures, conduct field operation validation ...

  10. Demonstration of a Low-Cost Vehicle Monitoring

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 112FM1

    During the Phase I SBIR Effort, Mainstream demonstrated a unique vehicle monitoring system (VMS) for tractor trailer applications. The development was driven by the need to easily store, retrieve, and transfer key trailer parameters to the tractor and the need to electronically transfer key driver, tractor, and trailer information to roadside inspectors and maintenance personnel. In Phase I, we ...
