  1. From Vehicle Performance to Transportation System Performance- System Impacts of Automated Vehicles

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 151FH4

    The rapid development of automated vehicles has attracted a lot of attentions from the public in recent years. Current studies on automated vehicles mainly focus on microscopic simulations with simple network topologies and driver behaviors, and few has considered to incorporate automated vehicles into macroscopic travel demand models for the analysis in a regional network. In this project, we pro ...

  2. Locomotive Flashing Light for Trespassers and Pedestrians Warning

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR6

    The Department of Transportation (DOT) is seeking a reliable and distinctive locomotive-based flashing light warning system capable of effectively warning trespassers ahead of the train without offending regular individuals/residences in neighboring areas. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop the Locomotive Flashing Light Alerting (FLA) system, which will ...

  5. A software solution to control bus-bunching using networked, commoditized tablets

    SBC: Via Analytics            Topic: 151FT1

    Bus bunching, the tendency of buses to cluster together, delays passengers, wastes transit agency resources, and makes drivers’ jobs more difficult. To solve this problem, we propose a control system consisting of networked tablets designed to automatically provide drivers with simple guidance based on the positions of other vehicles in the system. This proposal provides a plan to expand the exi ...

  9. Mobile Target Secondary Debris (MTSD)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: AF121095

    ABSTRACT:The objective of the project is to develop models for secondary debris generated by mobile targets. This includes the vehicle component breakup due to expanding high explosives and primary fragments as well as the associated airblast that propagates into the environment propelling secondary fragments from the vehicle. The overall scope of the project involves developing the computational ...

  10. Weapon Burial Secondary Debris (WBSD)

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: AF121097

    ABSTRACT:Most of the air delivered air force weapons are designed to detonate inside structures.However, due to targeting inaccuracies and other reasons they may land outside a structure and could detonate partially or fully buried in soil.These events could result in collateral damage to people, vehicles in the vicinity.Air force would like to have a fast running capability to assess the risk due ...
