  1. 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 ...

  3. Feasibility of an ultrasonic based instrument for assessing in-situ pipeline coatings

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FBS, Inc. proposes to establish the feasibility of an ultrasonically based device for in-situ evaluation of pipeline coatings and for the archiving of coating properties. Based on our experience gained through DOT and EPRI sponsored work on long range ultrasonics, buried pipes, and tar coated pipes we recognize the need for coating characterization not only as an important factor for inspection d ...

  4. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...

  7. MINIATURE MICROSENSOR ARRAY BIOMIMETIC "ELECTRONIC NOSE" FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF AIRCRAFT FIRES.

    SBC: Microsensor Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DAY FIRE DETECTORS NORMALLY EMPLOY A SINGLE SENSOR, SUCH AS AN OPTICAL DENSITY OR IONIZATION DETECTOR, THAT HAS WELL KNOWN LIMITATIONS. ALARM DECISIONS ARE THUS BASED ON A SINGLE MEASUREMENT THAT IS OFTEN INACCURATE, AND INSENSITIVE. WE PROPOSE TO USE AN ARRAY OF VERY SMALL AND INEXPENSIVE SOLID-STATE DEVICES THAT ARE HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL EFFECTS AND CHEMICAL VAPOR PRO ...

  8. ADVANCED ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNIQUES FOR TANK CAR WELD INSPECTION

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTIC EMISSION CAN DETECT FLAWS IN TANK CARS WITHOUT REMOVAL OF LINING OR INSULATION. THIS RELATIVELY NEW METHOD HAS ALREADY BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY ON ABOUT 10,000 CARS. HOWEVER, THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SHORTCOMINGS IN THE AREAS OF RELIABILITY AND INTERPRETATON. THIS PROJECT WILL ADDRESS AND CORRECT THESE SHORTCOMINGS WITH NEW RESEARCH AND REFINED TECHNIQUES FOR THE AE TEST. THE FIRST AREA OF RESE ...

  9. ADVANCED MATERIAL CONCEPTS FOR GUARDRAIL END TREATMENTS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    GUARDRAIL TERMINALS ARE SOME OF THE MORE TROUBLESOME AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ROADSIDE APPURTENANCES. RECENTLY DEVELOPED TERMINAL CONCEPTS WHICH HAVE PASSED CURRENT CRASH TEST CRITERIA TEND TO BE EXPENSIVE AND MAY REQUIRE EXCESSIVE LENGTH OF NEED, FLARE-OUT SPACE AND ADDITIONAL FILL AND GRADING. THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE EFFICIENT ENERGY ABSORBING TERMINAL CON ...
