  1. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

    City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects. Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required. This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process and the measuremen ...

  2. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle and Bicycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a suite of algorithms for the detection and classification of motorcycle and bicycle using IR LED stereo camera, LWIR thermal camera, and microphone. Test results using real data collected at streets have shown an excellent performance of this system. In Phase II, we will further improve the system developed and focus on the system performance issues in terms of near 100 ...

  3. Low Cost Fuel Grade Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    The membrane drying process for ethanol plants should be of great value in increasing capacity and/or reducing energy consumption for existing ethanol plants. We will manufacture modules of the novel membrane with a commercial partner. A pilot demonstration unit will be constructed and deployed at an actual ethanol plant for demonstrating the membrane process capabilities and advantages.

  4. Robotic Mass Removal of Citrus Fruits

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: 813

    Most citrus is harvested by hand. The resulting high cost in the U.S. is a burden to growers and positions them at a disadvantage to overseas competitors with low labor costs. Automated methods are needed to ensure the long-term viability and prosperity of the U.S. citrus industry. Energid Technologies proposes a new harvesting approach that combines robotic technologies with the efficiency of mas ...

  5. Electrochemical Ammonia Monitor for Agricultural Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Ammonia emissions from extensive agricultural operations such as livestock (beef, dairy, poultry, swine and horses) have gained much attention in recent years due to the adverse effects of these emissions on public health and outdoor air quality. Ammonia is considered an important pollutant due to its role as a precursor in fine particulate matter formation and its impact on ecological nitrogen ba ...

  6. Blow Molded Bioproducts From Renewable Plastics

    SBC: METABOLIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The widespread use of synthetic plastics has increased concerns over their adverse environmental impacts, and dramatic fluctuations in the cost and availability of petrochemical sources for plastic production creates the need for renewable, environmentally-friendly plastics derived from agricultural sources. Blow molded products are used widely in packaging, and are a major component of the plasti ...

  7. New Robust Multiple Pedestrian Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

    Large Scale Field Tests of MigmaMidblockTM Under FHWA SBIR Phase I/II funding, we have developed a product, MigmaMidblockTM, using stereoscopic technologies for the pedestrian detection at mid-block crossings and signalized intersections. It has been fielded at a mid-block crossing at Phillips Academy located in Andover, MA. This product can trigger the beacon flashers once pedestrians (i.e., h ...
