The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Suppressing Utility Problems- Protection via Robotic Engineering to the Sub-Surface

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Relocating overhead utilities to the subsurface can effectively reduce safety hazards on national highways and other aboveground living spaces. A typical underground space is, however, congested with buried utilities especially in an urban environment. The recordings of those underground utilities are, furthermore, often inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, or even entirely missing as a result of ...

  2. Dilemma Zone Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

    To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS). In this proposed Phase IIB work, IAI team will deploy and evaluate an enhanced version of DCWS that was designed in earlier phases. DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more c ...

  3. A Wireless Sensor Network with Accurate Time Synchronization and Wide Area Coverage for Traffic Signal Timing Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 101FH2

    Traffic congestion on our nation’s transportation network poses a major threat to economic prosperity and our citizens’ quality of life. When dealing with traffic congestion, especially the congestion caused by nonrecurring events, proactively managing the traffic signals in the network can be critical in accommodating the drastically varying traffic demands caused by the non-recurrent event, ...

  4. Personalized Driving Data for Insurance Discounts & Public Benefits

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: 141FH2

    This proposal suggests research on developing the next generation of consumer experience for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) in an increasingly socially connected world while addressing the need to protect privacy. It also proposes research on methodologies to address this from the perspective of insurance actuarial science. It will enhance Agnik’s current consumer and UBI products through the follo ...

  5. Product Development and Demonstration of Sub-Surface Measurements Prototypes for Location and Inspection of Transportation Infrastructure

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    The Advanced Pavement Evaluation (APE) prototype system combines multiple sensors to detect, measure, and assess the condition of sub-surface features, including in-pavement traffic sensors, pavement structures, and defects or deterioration of such structures. In phase II, the research and development efforts produced two distinct prototypes solutions: a step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SF ...

  6. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

      The ability to monitor the integrity of a bridge structure and detect damage or condition changes at early stages is of significant importance for bridge operation safety.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a low cost and effi ...

  7. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 081FH1

      This research focuses on the development of a real-time signal timing methodology and algorithms that balance safety and efficiency.  This research consists of two phases:  Phase I was completed in December 2009; it examined the relationships between signal timing and surrogate measures of safety, namely the frequency of rear-end, angle and lane-change conflicts.  The FHWA Su ...

  8. Aircraft Wiring Integrity Verification using Pseudo-Random Binary Sequence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our approach to aircraft wiring inspection is to inject a special type of low level probe signal into the cable to be tested. The system response to this special input can be used to give the complete transfer function of the cable. Incipient failures in the cable will be detectable as subtle changes in that transfer function, or cross-correlation between probe input signal and response, includi ...

  9. Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS) to mitigate Dilemma Zone (DZ)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

      To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative vehicle specific Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS).  DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more conventional systems which protect a fixed area on the pavement.  Apart from incorporating advance ...

  10. A Wireless Sensor Network with Accurate Time Synchronization and Wide Area Coverage for Traffic Signal Timing Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 101FH2

    Improved traffic signal timing and traffic incident response are two of the most cost-effective ways of reducing urban arterial network congestion. System-wide analysis of its cause is required to mitigate congestion or excessive traffic delay. Network wide, synchronized and real-time traffic flow data, and Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) data are indispensable for effectively adjusting traffic sig ...
