  1. Technological Enhancements to Improve and Expand Casual Carpooling in New Corridors

    SBC: Applied Engineering Management Corporation            Topic: 161FH1

    Technological Enhancements to Improve and Expand Casual Carpooling in New Corridors 12/05/2016 The overall goal of Phase II of this SBIR project is to demonstrate a working prototype of one or more tools and/or approaches that catalyze casual carpooling in a corridor where it does not exist or to improve casual carpooling in a corridor where it is present but underperforming. Phase II will provi ...

  2. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  3. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  4. Identifying Valuable Second Lives for Retired-Lithium-Ion Batteries in Transportation Systems

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 171OS1

    The identification of high-value and high-impact secondary applications for retired lithium-ion batteries is critical as the number of electric vehicles on the road continues to increase. During the Phase I DOT SBIR program NanoSonic will evaluate second-use application concepts for retired vehicular lithium-ion batteries in economically valuable, second-use sectors of transportation. We are partn ...

  5. Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection Devices for Transit Buses

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: 161FT1

    This SBIR proposal presents a robust and cost-effective pedestrian and cyclist detection and collision warning system for transit buses. It uses inexpensive but robust sensors and incorporates state-of-the-art object detection techniques to enable effective pedestrian and cyclist detection near transit buses in different environmental conditions. The proposed collision warning system exploits meas ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Train Reporting And Inspection INdex (TRAIN)

    SBC: Benten Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 151FR5

    Benten Technologies proposes to develop a back-end schema-less, open source, cloud-based database with front-end browser-based, cross-platform JavaScript model library to support locomotive inspection data collection. TRAIN will allow for the logging of inspection data for all types of locomotives including steam, diesel, diesel-electric, and electric locomotives by railroad and locomotive manufac ...

  8. Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    To address FRA’s requirements of measuring rail vehicle suspension displacement and integrating this into existing accelerometer-based ride quality systems, dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS will leverage the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality dat ...

  9. ELECTRONIC BOMB FUZE DETECTION

    SBC: Household Data Services            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL METHODS OF RAPIDLY SCREENING AIRLINE PASSENGERS AND BAGGAGE FOR EXPLOSIVE DEVICES ARE PROPOSED. TWO OF THESE METHODS USE NONLINEAR DEVICE DETECTION (NLDD) TO DETERMINE THE PRESENCE OF ACTIVE OR PASSIVE SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES WHICH MAY BE PART OF AN ELECTRONIC BOMB FUZE. ANOTHER TWO DETECT THE PRESENCE OF RUNNING OSCILLATORS WHICH ARE LIKELY SUBSYSTEMS OF A FUZING DEVICE.
