  1. Intellifusion- A System for Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 111FH2

    Our goal is to create a demonstrable prototype system at the end of Phase I which fuses IntelliDrive (SM) data with data from traditional inductive loop detectors and uses this data in a modified NEMA TS2 traffic signal controller within eTEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic to reduce traffic delay at intersections.  Our work will improve the safety of intersections and improve the mobility of traffic through adaptive traffic control which uses data produced by IntelliFusion, the product of our research.   The process of data fusion involves merging data obtained fr

  2. Traffic Intersection Simulation of IntelliDrive, J2735, and DSRC/WAVE with eTEXAS

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 101FH3

    We accelerate the maturity of IntelliDrive applications and unlock the storehouse of modeling detail in TEXAS to organizations building IntelliDrive applications J2735/Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) signal controllers and on-board IntelliDrive systems. We add four SAE J2735 messages: SPAT MapData Basic Safety Messages and Signal Request Message for emergency vehicle preemption. Mapping ...

  3. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings. The system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system. The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera. An off-the-shel ...

  4. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  5. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  6. Stress and Geometry Imaging from Outside the Pipeline

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as well as at other critical locations (dents, bends, etc.). JENTEK is uniquely positioned to deliver ...

  7. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner were selected for use. We have demonstrated that our pedestrian counting system can count multiple pedestrians walking in a large group, maintain individual tracks even when some pedestrians walk in unpredictable patterns or leave the crosswalk prematur ...

  8. Tailorable Accurate Blood Simulant (TABS)

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10H01

    Many blood simulants that are currently available for medical training to teach and practice hemorrhage-handling skills lack the ability approximate real blood in many aspects. In order to provide the best training, the blood simulant needs to mimic the

  9. Nano-Structured Spatiotemporally Controlled Delivery System that Promotes Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10H03

    There is a substantial clinical need for regenerative therapies that effectively restore function to damaged tissues. For many tissues, autograft remains the clinical standard despite the limited volume available, associated patient morbidity and the resu

  10. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Regeneration of cartilage and cartilage repair are challenging due to limited cellularity of the tissue and the failure of allografts and tissue engineered cartilage constructs to integrate with host tissue. To overcome this limitation, many surgeons are
