  1. Train Reporting And Inspection INdex (TRAIN)

    SBC: Benten Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 151FR5

    Benten Technologies proposes to develop a back-end schema-less, open source, cloud-based database with front-end browser-based, cross-platform JavaScript model library to support locomotive inspection data collection. TRAIN will allow for the logging of inspection data for all types of locomotives including steam, diesel, diesel-electric, and electric locomotives by railroad and locomotive manufac ...

  2. Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    To address FRA’s requirements of measuring rail vehicle suspension displacement and integrating this into existing accelerometer-based ride quality systems, dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS will leverage the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality dat ...

  4. Technological Enhancements to Improve and Expand Casual Carpooling in New Corridors

    SBC: Applied Engineering Management Corporation            Topic: 161FH1

    Technological Enhancements to Improve and Expand Casual Carpooling in New Corridors 12/05/2016 The overall goal of Phase II of this SBIR project is to demonstrate a working prototype of one or more tools and/or approaches that catalyze casual carpooling in a corridor where it does not exist or to improve casual carpooling in a corridor where it is present but underperforming. Phase II will provi ...

  5. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through the ...

  6. Fish Trap Extension Kit for Lionfish Control

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 822N

    R3 Digital Sciences (R3-DS) will develop and commercialize the Fish Trap Extension Kit (FTEK), and electromechanical device that will extend the capabilities of existing fish traps, and convert them from indiscriminate traps into “smart traps” capable of targeting specific fish types. To eliminate lionfish bycatch, the FTEK will enable existing commercial spiny lobster traps to autonomously de ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Coating Existing Concrete Barriers to Reduce Rollover Potential

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 121FH1

    The objective of this DoT SBIR program is to further establish the technical foundation of low friction HybridSil® Slippery Overturn Automobile Protection (SOAP) coatings on concrete barriers for drastic reductions in vehicle rollover potential and significantly increased concrete impact durability thus, enabling the rapid commercial integration of these coatings. To meet this challenge, NanoSoni ...

  9. A Quantitative Non-destructive Residual Stress Assessment Tool for Pipelines

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    There exists a wide-range need in both industry and government for quantitative residual stress measurements. Generation 2 Materials Technology LLC (G2MT) will collaborate with partners from industry and government to calibrate and commercialize the eStress system to assess residual stress from mechanical damage and re-rounding. The industrial members, consortiums, and government laboratories who ...

  10. Dynamic Non-Contact 3D Measurement System for Rollover Testing

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: 07NH2

    During Phases I and II, Photon-X successfully demonstrated the feasibility of applying its patented Spatial Phase Imaging technology to the problem of non-contact 3D imaging during a rollover test and delivered a viable prototype system. During Phase IIB, Photon-X will continue to refine the system in preparation for commercialization. Photon-X will use this opportunity to add an additional camer ...
