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. Effective, Low Cost Ethanol Sensor System for Repeat DWI Vehicles, with Wireless "Police Alert" Features

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Alcohol related crashes are a serious public health issue, resulting in an estimated 17,400 deaths and 292,000 injuries in 2003. Giner, Inc. proposes to combine innovative ethanol sensors, sampling techniques and wireless capabilities to provide a novel, inexpensive and convenient law enforcement tool for detecting alcohol use in the vehicles of repeat DWI offenders. The proposed sensor system h ...

  3. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As part of DOT's Intelligent Vehicle Intiative program, the FHWA is developing advanced vehicle safety and driver information systems. Vision-based pedestrian detection in outdoor scenes remains an open challenge. People dress in very different colors that sometimes blend with the background. They wear hats or carry bags, and stand, walk and change direction unpredictably. The background is variou ...

  4. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies. The technology for conversion of poultry manure into fuel gases by using heat can be integrated with internal combustion (IC) engines, microturnines, or fuel cells and have widespread agricultural us ...

  5. Milk Pasteurization and Homogenization by Acoustic Cavitation at Small Rural Dairy Farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Milk prices have steadily increased over the past two decades; however, the price paid to farmers has remained around $1.00 per gallon over the last two decades. This has resulted in many small dairy farmers getting out of the business. The purpose of this project is to design a system that a small dairy farmer can use to process milk so that he can send it directly to the consumer and avoid the a ...

  6. Lab science through distance learning: certification for in-service teachers

    SBC: Ergopedia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will create and evaluate a coordinated program of curriculum, equipment, software, and instruction that makes hand-on, lab-based, science content accessible through distance learning. The program is designed for in-service teachers to become highly qualified in science content areas, such as physics. Teachers registering for an online course can do labs because they will rece ...

  8. Carbon Dioxide Recovery from Combustion Flue Gas Using Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbents

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 45

    75640-This project addresses the environmental problem of the removal and recovery of carbon dioxide (CO2) from combustion/incineration flue gas in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, carbon-dioxide will be removed from flue gas by using sorbents based on amines that are supported on low-cost activated carbons. Phase I will demonstrate the superior CO2-sorption performance of ...

  9. Thermally-Activated Cooling from Low-Temperature Waste Heat

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: 41

    75859 Absorption refrigeration is the only currently available method that utilizes low-temperature waste heat to provide cooling. Unfortunately, absorption cooling systems for commercial and small industrial applications are relatively large and expensive, require costly-to-maintain cooling towers, and are difficult to interface with conventional vapor-compression refrigeration equipment. This ...

  10. Sonde Deployable Carbon Dioxide Sensor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 21

    76321-Predictions of global warming caused by human activities rely on complex models, which include time variable sources and sinks of atmospheric gases such as carbon dioxide. Reliable modeling depends on the existence of accurate and frequently-taken atmospheric profiles of these greenhouse gases. As of now, no readily deployable carbon dioxide sensor exists for this task. This project will ...
