  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. Handheld Microfluidic Device for Cyanobacteria Toxin Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated“lab-on-a-chip” technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of a variety of toxins in drinking water, particularly microcystins and other toxins produced by cyanobacteria. During blooms, the toxins in freshwater become concentrated enough to be a serious concern for ahuman health, ...

  8. Development of Pathway Selective Cells and Assays for Sensitive Detection of Environmental Toxicants via High Throughput Label-free Cell Based Screening

    SBC: ACEA Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: B

    Environmental pollutants that impact critical biological pathways involved in human development and physiology can have unpredictable effect on health. Among these critical pathways, various receptor tyrosine kinases, sonic hedgehog, transforming growth factor beta, Notch and WNT are known or suspected mediators of the effect of numerous environmental toxicants produced during manufacturing, pres ...

  9. Remediation of Oil Contaminated Ground and Surface Water Using Sulfate Nanofiltration Combined with High Efficiency On-Site Generation of Peroxodisulfate Using Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrodes

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will employ Nanofiltration to generate sulfate ion feedstocks and high current density on-site generation (synthesis) of the powerful oxidant peroxodisulphate (“persulfate”) with novel, high reliability boron-doped untrananocrystal-line diamond (UNCD) electrodes to dramatically lower the cost of unconventional fossil fuel (FF) waste water ...

  10. Energy and Nutrient Extraction from Onsite Wastewater

    SBC: AET Tech,LLC            Topic: A

    Onsite wastewater systems are a significant source of nutrient loading to the environment and there is a demand for technologies that remove nutrients at the source. Most desired are passive, low cost systems that can consistently remove ninety percent or greater nitrogen while having low energy input and easy operation. While numerous proprietary devices have been developed that typically emplo ...
