  1. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  2. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  3. Software to calculate occupant forces in real world crashes

    SBC: Dynamic Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for economical, high capacity softwre to aid medical and engineering researchers to more easily and consistently calculate forces acting on vehicle occupants during real-world crashes. One example of such research is NHTSA's Crash Injury research and Engineering Network (CIREN), which in adition to collecting injury and vehicle information, has increasing access to data from Event D ...

  4. MEASURING RETROREFLECTIVITY OF PAVEMENT MARKINGS

    SBC: Advanced Retro Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MEASUREMENT OF THE RETROREFLECTIVITY OF PAVEMENT MARKINGS OR TRAFFIC STRIPING HAS BEEN LIMITED BY THE INSTRUMENTATION AT PRESENT. THE MAJORITY OF THESE INSTRU- MENTS ARE HAND-HELD PORTABLE UNITS WITH LIMITED GEOMETRY ANDNEASUREMENT AREA. MOBLE UNITS BUILT BY SOME STATES ALSO ARE LIMITED IN THEIR PERFORMANCE BY STRAY LIGHT, NON-OPTIMUM GEOMETRY AND OTHER PROBLEMS. A NEW RETROREFLECTOMETER IS PR ...
