A Navigation and Object-Location System to Assist Blind and Low-Vision Individuals in Indoor EnvironmentsSBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC. Topic: N/A
This project demonstrates the technical merit, feasibility, and cost-effectiveness of combining ground-breaking Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology with an innovative approach and state of-the-art software to deliver a system capable of removing barriers in vocational settings. This system assists individuals with disabilities to orient themselves and safely navigate in vocational env ...SBIR Phase II 2010 Department of Education
SBC: Criterion Health, Inc. Topic: N/A
This project designs, constructs, and evaluates a concept model based on current mid wheel designs. The concept model uses a variable position drive wheel system that can move forward or backward from the mid-wheel position using a simple mechanical system to change the position of the drive wheels. A series of five structured tests for maneuverability and/or stability are used to compare performa ...SBIR Phase II 2010 Department of Education
SBC: VOXTEL, INC. Topic: N/A
A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...SBIR Phase II 2010 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
