  1. A Navigation and Object-Location System to Assist Blind and Low-Vision Individuals in Indoor Environments

    SBC: 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 ...

  2. Variable Position Mid-Wheel Drive System for Power Wheelchairs

    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 ...

  3. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    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 (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 equiva ...

  4. ADL Access: A Cognitively Accessible Software Application for Augmented Self-Management of Activities of Daily

    SBC: Assistech Systems LLC            Topic: N/A

    The previously conducted Phase I project had two goals: (1) to prototype and evaluate the feasibility of an intelligent computer-based task management application that would improve the ability of persons with cognitive disabilities to perform activities of daily living (ADL) and (2) to identify objectives for full development of a deployable system in a Phase II project. Intelligent multimedia ...

  5. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Tec ...

  6. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...
