  1. Enhancing the Usability of the TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at the University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  2. Real Time Linux Operating System for ATC

    SBC: Precision Traffic Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The Advanced Traffic Controller (ATC) goal of a standard open architecture for traffic engineering applications will be more fully realized by the transition from proprietary operating system to open source Linux. In Phase I of this project, Precision Traffic Systems (PTS) demonstrated that a real time Linux OS could support an existing traffic signal control application, and perform to 2070 task ...

  3. Voice Activated Cockpit for General Aviation

    SBC: The Wesson Group            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project will be to develop a prototype voice-activated cockpit (VAC) that will allow a pilot operating in marginal VMC to manipulate controls via voice commands and receive voice feedback for verification of settings. In so doing, we strive to create a system where tasks usually accomplished by looking at an item and manually entering data, turning knobs,, or pushing buttons will ...

  4. PROGRAMMABLE REFLECTANCE OF ARTIFICIAL FLAWS IN RAIL MATERIALS

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAMMABLE DEFECT SIMULATOR IS NEEDED TO TEST ULTRASONIC RAIL FLAW DETECTION SYSTEMS. CALIBRATION STANDARDS CAN BE DEVELOPED WITH VARIABLE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS ACCORDING TO A PREDESCRIBED SCHEME THAT SIMULATES COMMONLY-OCCURRING FLAWS (CROSS-HEAD FATIGUE CRACKS) IN RAILWAY SYSTEM RAILS. THIS PROJECT WOULD DEVELOP A METHOD OF ALTERING THE EFFECTIVE REFLECTIVITY OF A SOLID-GAS INTERFACE THRO ...

  5. THIS PROJECT AIMS AT DEVELOPING A HIGHLY ACCURATE AND ECONOMICAL AIRCRAFT ALTIMETER.

    SBC: Gulf Applied Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT AIMS AT DEVELOPING A HIGHLY ACCURATE AND ECONOMICAL AIRCRAFT ALTIMETER. THE MOTION OF AN EVACUATED BELLOWS WILL BE MONITORED BY AN OPTICAL POSITION SENSOR WHICH WILL GIVE AN ELECTRICAL ANALOG SIGNAL LINEARLY RELATED TO THE ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE. WHILE THE SENSOR IS VERY SMALL, RUGGED AND INEXPENSIVE, IT HAS A LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE (100,000), HIGH LINEARITY (0.01%) AND HIGH SENSITIVITY (M ...

  7. FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS.

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER, SMOKE AND TOXIC GAS EVOLUTION IN THE EVENT OF FIRE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO CREATE A FIRE RESISTANT COMPOSITE FOAM STRUCTURE WHICH WILL GENERATE NEGLIGIBLE QUANTITIES OF TOXIC FUMES WHEN EXPOSED TO FI ...
