  1. Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS) to mitigate Dilemma Zone (DZ)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 082FH1

    To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative vehicle specific Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS). DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more conventional systems which protect a fixed area on the pavement. Apart from incorporating advanced signal control ...

  2. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 081FH1

    This research focuses on the development of a real-time signal timing methodology and algorithms that balance safety and efficiency. This research consists of two phases: Phase I was completed in December 2009; it examined the relationships between signal timing and surrogate measures of safety, namely the frequency of rear-end, angle and lane-change conflicts. The FHWA Surrogate Safety Assessm ...

  3. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 081FH6

    The ability to monitor the integrity of a bridge structure and detect damage or condition changes at early stages is of significant importance for bridge operation safety. Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques. In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a low cost and efficient bridge stru ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    This Phase II proposal develops a novel third rail insulator cleaner called the Vohrtex based.on the successfully completed Phase I project that developed the low water consumption, quick cleaning tool, the “Spin Wedge.” The Vohrtex slides on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle that rides on the track. The Vohrtex has a pair of arms, which hang down on opposite sides of the t ...

  6. Novel Targeted Therapy for Breast Cancer

    SBC: A&G PHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Breast cancer remains one of the top three cancers to affect and cause mortality in women. Major shortcomings with current treatment are the high level of side effects induced in patients and insufficient efficacy, particularly for patients with metastatic disease. Targeted cancer therapy is designed to treat only the cancer cells and minimize damage to healthy ...

  8. New Needle for Two-Needle Hemodialysis

    SBC: BIOMEDICAL ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Studies performed with phase I SBIR grants 1R43DK55385-01A1 and 1 R43 DK59062-01A1 and phase II SBIR grants 2R44DK059062-02A1 and 5R44DK059062-04 have demonstrated the following: a) A new hemodialysis(HD) venous needle (NVN) with three jets is hemodynamically superior to the current venous needle (CVN) because it decreases the velocity of the vascular access ...

  9. Point of Care Flu Drug Resistance Test

    SBC: CELLEX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The studies from our Phase I SBIR (AI082728-01) demonstrated that it is feasible to develop the proposed assay, a biochemiluminescence assay that uses a novel flu virus neuraminidase substrate, for sensitive detection of influenza virus drug resistance. The assay is now being used by a federal agency for monitoring influenza virus drug resistance during the on ...
