  2. Portable Rail Suspension Displacement Monitoring System

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS leverages the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality data acquistion framework to accept inputs from suspension displacement sensors, RPAS can correlate data from acceleration and displacement sensors with geospatial in ...

  4. Roadway Hazard Alert System for Motorcycles

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 151FH3

    Motorcyclists face a unique set of challenges when operating on public streets and highways. In addition to hazards relevant to automobiles, motorcycle riders must remain vigilant for hazards that pose significant danger to motorcycles (e.g., uneven terrain, sand/gravel, potholes); however, there is currently no motorcycle-specific hazard tracking or alerting system available for riders. To addres ...

  5. Technology to Improve upon APC Data Counting that will Provide Better Correlation to Service Plan

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automated Passenger Counter (APC) 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. It was found that APCs have limited use on rail vehicles due to very wide doors. It has also been a challenge for transit agencies to track the o ...

  7. Passive Rail Temperature Control Technology

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 151FR8

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a novel composite laminate that when applied to standard steel rails will regulate the maximum temperature reached, limiting expansion and buckling. During Phase I, PSI will work with QinetiQ North America to demonstrate the performance of PSI’s system in a simulated railroad environment. Testing will demonstrate the thermal properties of the laminate. ...

  9. Device to Address the Competing Needs of Ensuring Lockability of Seat Belts and Mitigating Entrapment Risk in Mis-Use Conditions

    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 syst ...
