  1. Transportation System Performance Measurement Using Existing Loop Infrastructure

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 102FH2

    With continuing emphasis on transportation sustainability and fiscal stewardship, utilizing existing loop detector infrastructure to obtain more accurate, reliable and comprehensive traffic system performance measures is desired by many transportation agencies. In Phase I study, we found that the capability of the Inductive Loop Detector (ILD) signature technology to re-identify and classify vehic ...

  2. Smartphone Signal Alert Status

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    The primary objective for Phase I was to design and develop a proof of concept system demonstrating the basic functionality and feasibility to deploy technology in the field. During the six-month effort, a detailed Concept of Operations document was prepared that served as a foundation for the design and development of the SmartCross system. The core components of the system: (a) Smartphone applic ...

  3. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH2

    In this proposal, we have proposed a program for twenty months to build on the basic ideas and feasibility developed in Phase I of this SBIR in order to demonstrate the practical use of DSRC technologies with signal controller for adaptive timing with a goal towards commercialization. Specifically, we intend to further develop, build and integrate advanced signal control algorithms that make use o ...

  4. SPLATverb, a Drop-In Technology to Manage the Mountain Pine Beetle

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    The mountain pine beetle (MPB), Dendroctonus ponderosae, is one of the most destructive pests of North American forests as it attacks large lodgepole pine trees. During outbreak years, beetles mass attack these trees causing irreversible damage that leads to the death of the tree, usually within one year of a successful attack. Large acreages of pristine forests are turned into fire hazards as pre ...

  5. Dakota Learning Project: Computer-Assisted Mathematics Instruction in a Cultural Context

    SBC: JULIA GROUP, THE            Topic: 86

    The Dakota Learning Project uses computer gaming to address the problem of low mathematics achievement of American Indian children in rural persistent poverty counties. Students solve mathematical problems in a 3-D virtual world that teaches, tests and tracks. Correct answers allow students to continue game play, wrong answers route students to instructional videos, web pages or apps to teach the ...

  6. Effective Semiochemical Management of the Oriental Beetle for the Small Blueberry Grower

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Highbush blueberry production has become an increasingly important US agricultural industry, produced by small and medium-sized farms in 35 states. There are very few pest management tools available to blueberry growers. A neuro-active neonicotinoid, is the only effective insecticide blueberry growers have to control the Oriental beetle (OrB), Anomala orientalis Waterhouse, a destructive root feed ...

  7. Scale-up of Gratuitous Inducer for Industrial Enzyme Production

    SBC: PANORAMA RESEARCH            Topic: 88

    We have identified methods to produce inducers of cellulase production that will streamline the production of these enzymes for cellulosic ethanol and other applications. During Phase II of this project, we will scale up the methods, determine their applicability to commercially relevant hosts, and optimize conditions for their induction.

  8. Laser-Based Sensor for Nitrate Isotope Analysis in Water Pollution Monitoring

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: 84

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to utilize its patented Off-Axis ICOS technology to develop an analyzer for the accurate determination of 15N/14N, 18O/16O, and 17O/16O isotope ratios in nitrates (d15N, d18O, and d17O). The system will employ the bacterial denitrification method to convert nitrates (NO3-) into N2O, and then utilize a mid-i ...

  9. Rapid, field-ready boron analysis

    SBC: Ondavia, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The objective of this Phase II SBIR proposal is to develop a prototype boron measurement system for use with oil and gas produced water. Oil production is water intensive, requiring large volumes of fresh water for production, and producing even larger volumes of contaminated water. In some older California oilfields, nine barrels of contaminated water are produced for every barrel of oil. Produce ...

  10. Development of an Electromyographically Controlled Electrolarynx Voice Prosthesis


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The most common artificial voice source for post-laryngectomy speech rehabilitation is the hand-held buzzer or electrolarynx (EL). This device is relatively easy to use and enables most laryngectomees to verbally communicate, but with reduced intelligibility and markedly degraded naturalness. In addition, EL speech is often described as robotic and monotone, at ...
