The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Reading Barcode signs to Support V21 Safety

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH1

    Reading Barcode Signs to Support V21 Safety 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas with limited access to Information and ...

  2. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 180FH4

    An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Traffic Data Analysis Tool for Advanced Freeway Traffic Management 3/20/2018 Planned or unplanned traffic events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. It was estimated that 60% of congestions are non-recurrent and 15% of incidents are secondary to the primal accidents. Thus local or regional Traffic Management Centers (T ...

  3. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void in System in Fresh Concrete Air void parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. We have demonstrated the feasibility and viability of using an acoustic method to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete, the proposed solution is b ...

  4. Development of an Acoustic Method for Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Air parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. Currently there is no method or device that can accurately meet such requirements. We propose to develop an acoustic air void measurement system that can be used in the field to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete. The propo ...

  5. Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer for Railway Wood Ties Remanufacturing (BFRP-WTR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 171FR1

    The service life of the wood ties has been diminishing with increased axle loads with higher rail car speeds and frequencies. The depletion of wood and creosote induced contamination are of great environmental concerns. It is of a substantial interest to develop an effective recycling/remanufacturing methodology for creosote-treated wood ties. A composite wood tie design is proposed here, with use ...

  6. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail grade crossings, at which there is an abrupt change in the level of the road surface as it crosses the tracks, present a severe hang-up risk to vehicles with low ground clearance. In Phase I and II, ATR developed a conceptual design for a Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection System (LGCVDS) to actively prevent such accidents. The LGCVDS is able to use a priori crossing profile data ...

  7. Personalized Driving Data for Insurance Discounts & Public Benefits

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: 141FH2

    This proposal suggests research on developing the next generation of consumer experience for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) in an increasingly socially connected world while addressing the need to protect privacy. It also proposes research on methodologies to address this from the perspective of insurance actuarial science. It will enhance Agnik’s current consumer and UBI products through the follo ...

  8. Suppressing Utility Problems- Protection via Robotic Engineering to the Sub-Surface

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Relocating overhead utilities to the subsurface can effectively reduce safety hazards on national highways and other aboveground living spaces. A typical underground space is, however, congested with buried utilities especially in an urban environment. The recordings of those underground utilities are, furthermore, often inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, or even entirely missing as a result of ...

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

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 101FH2

    Traffic congestion on our nation’s transportation network poses a major threat to economic prosperity and our citizens’ quality of life. When dealing with traffic congestion, especially the congestion caused by nonrecurring events, proactively managing the traffic signals in the network can be critical in accommodating the drastically varying traffic demands caused by the non-recurrent event, ...

  10. Low Profile Microwave Radar and WiFi Sensors for Visually Unobtrusive Vehicle Detection and Travel Time Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH5

    National Park Service roadways/parkways have experienced safety and congestion issues similar to other highways in the U.S., especially in the urban areas where NPS parkways are part of the metropolitan traffic network. Visually unobtrusive traffic monitoring and data collection on NPS parkways with minimal impact on viewsheds or disturbance of the historical, cultural landscape is in critical nee ...
