  1. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  4. An On-Board Eco-Approach and Departure System for Transit Vehicles

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FT1

    This research is designed to develop a methodology that will review the real-time location and route of a transit vehicle, correlate them with real-time and predicted signal phasing and timing (SPAT) information from traffic signals and communicate via existing mediums eco-approach and departure information to transit vehicles through onboard Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) or an in-vehicle Human-Mac ...

  5. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  6. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  7. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: 843WP

    Phase II of the New METSAT Display project will produce a working beta version of the Earth Imaging product customized for NWS/NOAA as outlined in the Phase I proof of concept. This product will ingest imagery from a data source (in this case a web service of NOAA satellite imagery) and display it accurately on a globe of the Earth. Vector data such as roads, cities, towns, counties, states, etc. ...

  8. Technology to Improve upon APC Data Counting that will Provide Better Correlation to Service Plan

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) and rider Origin-Destination (OD) flow tracking are extremely important to understand the transit system utilization and rider travel patterns to minimize transit costs and efficiently run the transit system. While the market is not short of stand-alone COTS APC sensors, there are still non-trivial challenges and issues existing both for accurate passenger counti ...

  9. Driver Fatigue and Distraction Monitoring and Warning System

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FM1

    Fatigue and distraction are among the major risk factors associated with Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes. For this effort, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop an innovative, low-cost, practical and non-contact concept called Multi-Modal Driver Distraction and Fatigue Detection/Warning System (MDF). MDF consists of four major modules: (1) Vision Module for measuring dri ...

  10. Technology to Improve upon APC Data Counting that will Provide Better Correlation to Service Plan

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 142FT1

    To provide quality services and reduce operating costs, it is important for transit agencies to know the transit passenger origin and destination (OD) demand. Such demand often changes over time and season and is critical for optimizing transit schedules and improving transit network design. It is also useful for adjusting transit service plans in response to emergency situations such as the Marat ...
