  1. A Mobile and Social Approach to Fostering Casual Carpooling in New Corridors

    SBC: Applied Engineering Management Corporation            Topic: 161FH1

    The technical objective of this Phase I project is to develop concept that demonstrates the viability of one or more tools and/or approaches to 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. The proposed approach offers four unique components: (1) building off of the existing casual carpoolin ...

  2. Multimodal Alerting Interface with Networked Short-range Transmissions (MAIN-ST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 161FH2

    The connected vehicles program is a multimodal U.S. DOT initiative that uses a dedicated wireless communication technology to enable safer, smarter, and greener surface transportation. While significant efforts are being made to bring motor vehicles and transportation infrastructure onto this connected network, bicycles have been largely overlooked. As a result, a significant need exists to bring ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Pedestrian Detection, Counting and Tracking Systems for Travel Surveys, Traffic Safety Systems and Traffic Control Systems

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase II, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner are selected for use. This Phase II system was field-tested at a few cities and achieved a counting accuracy about 97% over 5,000 pedestrians counted. The system can also stream the ped counts and images to a remote server. Based on the feedback from p ...

  6. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1016

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of “MySidewalk,” a mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. MySidewalk utilizes advances in social networks, mobile data collection, and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of the conce ...

  7. A Reliable Transit Passenger Counting and Re-identification System Using Occlusion Proof Biometrics

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automated passenger counter has been used in the transit systems for automated passenger counting and reporting. These systems have suffered counting accuracy issues, particularly at high rider load points, and at end-of-line count reconciliation. In Phase I, we have successfully developed systems for passenger counting and re-identification. Test results using the data collected at a transit b ...

  8. Device to Address the Competing Needs of Ensuring Lockability of Seat Belts and Mitigating Entrapment Risk

    SBC: TOOL INC            Topic: 142NH1

    Federal regulations require a seat belt assembly with a locking lap belt to be available in passenger seating positions to securely accommodate a child restraint system. More recently, federal regulations have been updated to improve the quality of the child restraint system and the mechanisms by which it is secured. However, there are restrictions on total weight capacities for new restraint sy ...

  9. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled Material

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase I, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase 1 culminated in the demonstration of half-scale 24’ diameter roundabout’s center circle made with the recycled boards. The same material and modular construction approach can be applied to other roundabout featur ...

  10. Development and Evaluation of Nanophase Silica as Super Pozzolan for Applications in Ultra-High Performance Concrete Mixtures

    SBC: CHK GROUP, INC.            Topic: 88

    The principal objective of the proposed USDA SBIR Phase I project is to develop the use of Nanophase Silica (NS), a product derived from processing of agricultural waste, as a key ingredient in Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) formulations to achieve very high strength, durability and dimensional stability (i.e. no shrinkage or expansion without cracking). Also, the excess energy/steam from ...
