  1. InFusion: Performance improvements of traffic controllers by means of data fusion and analysis

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH2

    Traffic signal controlled intersections currently receive data from various sensors including inductive loops cameras microwave and infrared technologies. These technologies measure presence and passage of vehicles at fixed locations on the intersection approaches. The emergence of IntelliDriveSM will empower intersection control algorithms with rich information from DSRC equipped vehicles. In this new environment we will receive traditional loop data SPAT messages from road side equipment and “here-i-am” basic safety messages from aftermarket or OEM vehicles.

  2. Traffic Signal Alert System for Smartphone Users at Intersection Crossing

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 111FH1

    We propose a Smartphone based system that can integrate information commonly available on a mobile phone and real time traffic signal phasing data to provide assistance to pedestrians and cyclists for safer intersection crossing. GPS accelerometer and digital compass information from a smart phone together with digital maps will be integrated to determine the location and orientation of a user. R ...

  3. SmartCross- Traffic signal interface on the smartphone

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    In 2008 there were 69000 and 52000 injuries reported for pedestrians and bicyclists respectively.A majority of these injuries were a result of impulsive decisions by road users. This proposal aims to make use of proliferation of smartphones and provide a technical solution to mitigate the risks associated with these two types of road users. The SmartCross application will enable pedestrians and bicyclists to make informed decisions for crossing a signalized intersection thereby reducing the risks.

  4. Intelligent Ridesharing for a new Mobility

    SBC: Axiom xCell, Inc.            Topic: 111FH4

    The development of a wireless mobile cloud platform that includes dynamic ride matching; utilizing in-vehicle systems and user interface; with supporting connectivity to social networks and HOV/HOT lane tolling infrastructure" will create a critical enhancement to enable an increase in ridesharing on the nation’s roadways.The objective of this Phase I research project is the development of a concept of operations that demonstrates the viability and interoperability of a mobile application that enables hands-free non-distracting dynamic ride matching to help facilitate more ridesharing.

  5. Low Cost Full-field Tool for In-Ditch Deformation Measurement

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent cause of leaks and ruptures in pipelines. Surface corrosion is also a threat to pipeline integrity. Currently used techniques for assessing damage by means of in-line inspectin and in-ditch tools are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service. In this project Intelligent Optical Systems wi ...

  6. Program for Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop software that can process infrared video streams to automatically detect gray whale blows. Additionally, the software will count the number of blows and estimate the speed and the number of whales that are present. We will make use of a novel technique for whale blow detection that Toyon has demonstrated on infrared video of humpback whales. The approach makes use of b ...

  7. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  8. HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 841

    Over 300 HF RADARs worldwide are producing ocean surface data that is used in oil spill response, search & rescue, vessel traffic management, and research. In the U.S. there are 100+ systems supplying real-time data to the Coast Guard, NOAA IOOS, OR&R and other operational groups. To provide the highest quality data to stakeholders, systems should be calibrated by measuring the receive antenna p ...

  10. Simulation Techniques for Studying Night Driver Effects on Driver Behavior

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: 112NH1

    To properly simulate nighttime visibility conditions for driving simulation, one must first consider visibility issues in human vision. From a safety point of view, the driver must see road markings to maintain lane position and navigate complex intersections. The driver must also be able to detect objects including pedestrians that must be avoided. Furthermore, the simulator should present sce ...
