  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. Best Practices for IntelliDrive Enabled Mobile Application Development

    SBC: Mygistics Inc.            Topic: 102FH3

    The scope of this research initiative addresses what is best practice for delivering mobile applications while ensuring a safe, consistent experience given the differing communications standards, operating systems and hardware limitations of existing and prospective personal communications devices.  It is assumed the scope of this initiative is limited to exploration of applications for consumer devices only, not on-board OEM equipment/applications that may use a passenger's personal communications device to provide network connectivity.  However, the ability of a personal device

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Turbulent Combustion Interaction Models for LES Simulations of High Speed Flow

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD10T001

    At present, the predictive capability of simulation codes and models used in the conceptual planning and design of high-speed propulsion systems is limited by the ability to describe the complex flow fields inside the combustor, mixing models, detailed chemistry and turbulence-chemistry interactions, and subgrid-closure models. The objective of the proposed work is to develop and validate a high-f ...

  9. Nano-Sintered High Thermal Conductivity Composites

    SBC: CREATIVE ELECTRON INC.            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project will develop carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) material systems incorporating metallic nanoparticles with low-temperature sintering properties to render structures with very high transverse thermal conductivity. CFRPs are already used in a myriad of applications requiring high strength-to-weight ratio, but their poor transverse thermal conductivity limits ...

  10. Photoactivatable Protean Glass/Ceramic Materials for Imbedded Miniature Devices

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT11

    ABSTRACT: Photosensitive protean materials form essentially a new class of materials which are manufactured in one state but its select material properties can be physically and locally altered through patterning and lithography. In this proposed research, we will demonstrate the feasibility of creation of conductive copper lines imbued in the glass by using novel glasses with laser direct writin ...
