  1. BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORT FOR MINI-CARS

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DOWNSIZING OF AUTOMOBILES ON U.S. HIGHWAYS, MINI-CARS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR PART OF THE AUTO POPULATION. THE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH CRUSH RATE OF THESE VEHICLES CAN CAUSEHIGH VELOCITY CHANGE LEVELS WHEN IMPACTING MOST EXISTING BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. THIS INCREASES THE PROBABILI-TY OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTSOF MINI-CARS WHEN IMPACTING LUMI- NAIRE SUPPORTS. CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WH ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Advanced Structures Technology            Topic: N/A

    AN ADVANCED TURBINE ENGINE FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM USING CERAMIC TILES ON A POLYMER FIBER BACKING RING IS PRO- POSED. THE PROPOSED CERAMIC/POLYMER-FIBER SYSTEM HAS PROVEN MORE WEIGHT EFFECTIVE THAN MONOLITHIC METALLIC OR POLYMER MATERIALS FOR STOPPING PENETRATION OF BALLISTIC MUNITIONS PROJECTILES. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THIS TECHNOLOGY, ORIGINAL-LY DEVELOPED FOR AIRCRAFT ARMOR SYSTEMS, WILL DEC ...

  4. Development of Light-Weight, Low-Cost Multichannels Membrane Reformer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach for the development of a lightweight, low-cost, compact, and quick start-up on-board fuel reformer is proposed in this Phase II program. The approach is based on a novel MER¿s technique for the fabrication of multichannel mini-reactors incorporating hydrogen separating membrane. Multichannel mini-reactor shrinks the dimensions through which energy and reactants travel to their ...

  5. Anonymous Traffic Probes for Travel Time and O-D using Bluetooth IDs

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Building upon the successes of an SBIR Phase I project, Traffax Inc. in cooperation with Purdue University proposes in Phase II a large scale deployment of Bluetooth Traffic Monitoring (BTM) technology to exercise real-time capability and continued exploration of BTM arterial specific applications. Whereas the first phase concentrated on resolving several key issues and demonstrating utility in s ...

  6. A Wireless Sensor Network with Accurate Time Synchronization and Wide Area Coverage for Traffic Signal Timing Analysis

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 101FH2

    Improved traffic signal timing and traffic incident response are two of the most cost-effective ways of reducing urban arterial network congestion. System-wide analysis of its cause is required to mitigate congestion or excessive traffic delay. Network wide, synchronized and real-time traffic flow data, and Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) data are indispensable for effectively adjusting traffic sig ...

  7. Product Development and Demonstration of Sub-Surface Measurements Prototypes for Location and Inspection of Transportation Infrastructure

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    The Advanced Pavement Evaluation (APE) prototype system combines multiple sensors to detect, measure, and assess the condition of sub-surface features, including in-pavement traffic sensors, pavement structures, and defects or deterioration of such structures. In phase II, the research and development efforts produced two distinct prototypes solutions: a step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SF ...

  8. Addressing the Driving Needs of Short Stature Persons

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: 04NH1

    Phase I research on the development of a supplemental seating system for short stature drivers was undertaken by Safe Inc. in 2005. The purpose of Phase I was to demonstrate the feasibility of a device that would improve the ability of short stature drivers to safely operate a motor vehicle and to improve occupant crash safety. The study sought to examine the use of pedal extenders and other imp ...

  9. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...
