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. Enhancing the Usability of the TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at the University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  2. Phase II: EcoSod An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growth-to be ...

  3. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

    In Phase I, we have developed new pedestrian detection and tracking techniques based on stereo images. Our system comprises a number of key modules including (1) disparity layered thresholding method that can be used to extract the potential pedestrian(s) layer by layer; (2) pedestrian detectiona and discrimination using 3D convex feature that can be used to detect the pedestrian in each disparity ...

  4. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Railroad Freight car safety and maintenance cost is directly related to knowledge of the actual braking force provided by a brake shoe. If the brake force is too low, safety is at risk. If the brake shoe is replaced before the end of it's lifetime to ensure safety, maintenance and thus operating costs are increased. Currently there is no system in place to monitor brake shoe force during train ...

  5. Driver Training and Safety System (DTASS)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is little question that drowsy driving and driver inattention are significant problems leading to large numbers of accident and loss of life. These sentiments are strongly confirmed in two recently published NHTSA reports make clear the relationship between driver inattention and vehicle crashes and near-crashes. Our approach will be based on measuring the standard measures of fatigue and ...

  6. Motion Sick

    SBC: ARTIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Motion Sick builds on Artis, LLC's experience in portable motion recording systems, data analysis and GIS software. Artis will develop a product line that meets the needs of railroad inspectors in determining passenger ride quality and a broader market to include other transportation modes. The base product of, GPS Motion Sick, meets all the requirements specified. As with many other Artis moti ...

  7. High Resolution Electromagnetic Imaging and Decision Support for Pipeline Life Management

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal relates to the application of electromagnetic imaging of pipelines and coatings for damage detection, condition assessment and enhanced decision support and life management. JENTEK's inductive Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM) sensor and MWM-Arrays have demonstrated sensitivity and resolution capability superior to conventional nondestructive examination technology in a number o ...

  8. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: N/A

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The technique uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imag ...

  9. Pipe Disbondment Detection and Coating Assessment Using the Dynamic Wavelet Fingerprinting

    SBC: Solers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Existing pipe inspections ae incapable of reliably detecting coating disbonds. Conventional above ground surveys cannot detect disbonds because of shielding conditions, and traditional guided wave inspection systems are unable to reliably detect subtle non-axisymmetric flaws. Finally, most of the advanced ultrasound technology in industry has been focused on inline inspection systems which are i ...

  10. Pilot for Rail Passenger Cab Cars

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX LLC proposes a Phase I SBIR project that will result in a preliminary conceptual design for rail passenger cab car pilots that will reduce the risk for derailment following a grade crossing collision with an automobile. Several tasks are proposed, including: a review of existing pilot designs by contacting car builders and operators; a review of grade crossing accidents; the development of ...
