  1. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels 3/16/2018 Ultrasound-based technology to nondestructively determine fracture toughness of pipeline steels will be developed. Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challeng ...

  2. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas ...

  3. Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose developing a new observational capability for measuring upper atmosphere (20-Km to 200-Km+ altitude) wind and temperature dynamics, based on Doppler imaging of Limb concentrations of NO, N2O, and CO2 called the Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder. The principle of operation is that by measuring the Doppler shift of trace gases created by the differential velocity betwee ...

  4. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...

  5. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    The Next Generation Equipment Committee (NGEC) developed a standard for specifying the use of an Ethernet based digital train line (DTL) network to replace the COMM line for passenger trains. These specifications are PRIIA 305‐919 Digital Train Line Hardware and PRIIA 305‐920 Digital Train Line Software. The intent Is to eventually allow for the improvement of passenger train control. DTL spec ...

  6. Environmentally Neutral Electric Bike Share System

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commuting. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bike share programs in cities across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling to use bicycles to commute, either due to personal reservation or perceived terrain difficulties. This is accomplish ...

  7. Using Alternative Energy to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Production in the Transportation Sector

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commute, specifically targeting areas and demographics with below average bicycle usage, and adverse weather conditions. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bikes in bike share programs across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling or unab ...

  8. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: NAVMAR APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR7

    Rail line intrusion events, initiated by dismounted individuals on foot or in vehicles, often result in devastating collisions with a train, with outcomes unfavorably to the intruder. A need exists for a locomotive mounted advanced remote detection system that can autonomously detect and characterize an intruder, at a distance, alerting the operating engineer to take corrective action. Navmar Appl ...

  9. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

  10. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...
