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. Advanced Rapid Non-destructive test method to determine chemical composition of concrete materials in the field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    NMR offers comprehensive capabilities for quantitative investigation of the chemistry, structure and deterioration conditions of concrete. Single-sided NMR provides opportunities for nondestructive, spatially resolved field evaluation of concrete. A first-generation single-sided NMR system was developed in Phase I project, and its potential for investigation of concrete deterioration mechanisms wa ...

  2. Belt Shift Interlock Delay/Deaccelerator with Learning Curve Software to Increase Seatbelt Usage on Commercial Vehicles

    SBC: The Tenik Group Inc.            Topic: 07FM1

    Various methods for increasing seat belt usage have been investigated over the last several years including visual and audible warnings currently installed in today’s vehicles. In spite of these attempts, FMCSA research has shown that drivers of about 59% of commercial motor vehicles (those weighing 10,000 pounds or more that operate in interstate commerce) buckle their safety belts as compared ...

  3. Driver Assistant for Intelligent Safety (DAISY)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 151FH1009

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low-level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech and its partners, UMTRI and Delphi Automotive, propose to develop DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system ...

  4. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    Accessing a freight locomotive is one of the most basic, daily tasks performed by a railroad engineer. However, this task has historically been difficult due to several factors such as the first step which may be 19 inches above the top of the rail, weather conditions which may make the steps slippery, and the fact that the ground surrounding the locomotive may be uneven or covered in debris or ba ...

  5. EFFICIENT CONSOLIDATION OF CONCRETE USING THE RESONANCE PHENOMENON AND COMBINATION OF INTERNAL AND SURFACE VIBRATIONS

    SBC: Innotech International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCRETE CONSOLIDATION SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE RESONANCE PHENOMENON AND HARMONIC COMBINATION OF INTERNAL AND SURFACE VIBRATIONS FOR EFFICIENTACHIEVEMENT OF UNIFORM AND THOROUGH CONSOLIDATION OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. AN INTEGRATED ANALYTICAL-EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH IS PLANNED TO ASSESS THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY AND COST COMPETITIVENESS OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH. ANALYTICA ...

  6. HIGHWAY FOG WARNING SYSTEM

    SBC: SENTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DENSE FOG HAS OFTEN BEEN A CAUSE OF TRAGIC ROAD ACCIDENTS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COST EFFECTIVE HIGHWAY FOG DETECTION SYSTEM WHICH MONITORS ROAD VISIBILITY AND PROVIDES WARNINGS TO MOTORISTS THROUGH ROADSIDE DISPLAYS OR RADIO COMMUNICATION IS PROPOSED FOR DOT 94-FH7. THE PROPOSED OPTICAL SENSOR MEASURES SCATTERED LIGHT FROM FOG PARTICLES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE FOCUSED ON DETERMINING THE FEASIB ...

  7. Real-Time Portable Neutron Spectroscopy

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: DTRA07002

    A critical gap in homeland security is the inability to efficiently detect and identify kilogram-size samples of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM, uranium and transuranic elements). Penetrating neutron emission is unique to fissionable material and difficult to obscure with passive shielding. The current state of the art in neutron imaging is not suitable for field applications. Michigan Aerospace ...

  8. Research and Development of a Game Based technology and Database to Train Pre-Drivers, Young Drivers, and Older Drivers to Detect Traffic Hazards

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    Recent research suggests there are opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. For example, the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles among 16 year old drivers is some ten times higher than it is among those between the ages of 45 and 55. However, hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accompli ...

  9. Transit Safety

    SBC: MACKINAC TECHNOLOGY, THE            Topic: 131FT1

    The Mackinac Technology Company is proposing to continue its Phase I development of a novel antireflection technology that will dramatically reduce the reflection of interior lighting on transit bus windshields and significantly improve driver visibility and passenger/pedestrian safety. Transit bus operators are required to maintain a minimum level of interior lighting while operating at night. ...
