  1. Concrete Environmental Monitoring Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 07FH3

    With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of concrete structures so that timely maintenance can maximize their useful lives. This SBIR will demonstrate the feasibility of using a passive sensor, embedded within concrete, to measure mositure, temperature, pH and concentrations of chlorides. It will provide critical data for evaluating concrete performance s ...

  2. Pedestrain Exposure Measurement Technology Development

    SBC: CALSPAN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Calspan Corporation, located in Buffalo, NY is proposing the research and development of the technology and methodolgy that can be used to accurately measure pedestrian exposure. Existing technologies/methodologies will be analyzed, and a technology/methodolgy that focuses on an individual pedestrian's walking history will be specified. Only technologies that are small, lightweight, reliable, an ...

  3. PDA-Based Portable Data Collection System for Commercial Vehicle Inspection

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 02FM1

    More than 1,300,000 Level 1 commercial vehicle inspections - a safety-critical, time-consuming, often difficult and painstaking process, especially as regards the brake inspection component -- are performed every year in the United States, under all sorts of weather and lighting conditions. The current technology used adds to the complexity and error potential inherent in this important task. In ...

  4. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  5. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  6. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  7. N/A

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing trend towards the use of ¿Car-Less¿ technology, where a rail-car is not needed to transport road-haul trailers over rail: Trailers operate in the usual manner over highways, drive up to a rail yard and transform to ¿rail-mode¿ with relative ease. In rail mode, many ¿Car-Less¿ units use slightly modified 3-piece, 70-ton freight car trucks. These trucks are no ...
