  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 Su ...

  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 a ...

  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 o ...

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

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Traffax Inc. proposes a system based on Bluetooth point-to-point communications to anonymous detect vehicles, establish travel times, and develop accurate Origin & Destination (O-D) matrices.  Preliminary research performed at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, Indiane Department of Transportation, and Purdue University identified the use of consumer ...

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

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 101FH2

    Increasing population, vehicles, and the excessive traffic induced by urban sprawl is overburdening the existing highway system. Traffic delays and air pollution are often caused by ineffective traffic signal timing. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are adopted to better manage and control the surface transportation network in many cities. However, there is lack of an independent signal ...

  8. A novel detection and warning system to mitigate dilemma zone (DZ) issues

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 082FH1

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative and inexpensive solutions using In-roadway detectors and embedded pavement flashing light warning system to solve the dilemma zone (DZ) problem. Detection is performed by a pair of inductive loops in each travel lane, 800 to 1200 ft from intersection. The detection system includes prediction of vehicle travel time to the intersection and ...

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

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 081FH6

    The ability to monitor the condition of a bridge structure to detect damage or changes in condition at early stages is of significant interest to many bridge owners. 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 bridge structural health monitoring syst ...
