  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of Rigorous and Reliable Methods to Preserve Maize Pollen

    SBC: Accelerated AG Technologies, LLC            Topic: 82

    The seed industry generates tremendous value from hybrid crops relative to varietal or self-pollinated crops. For example, while corn (a hybrid crop) and soybeans (a self-pollinated crop) were planted on approximately the same land area in the U.S. in 2015, the total value of the corn hybrid seed industry was greater than 4x the value of the soybean seed industry. However, producing hybrid seed is ...

  7. VIRTUOSO: Visual Recognition of Pests for Crop Scouting

    SBC: ALLYKE, INC.            Topic: 813

    Agriculture has seen rapid development in both the quantity and quality of food production; however, the presence of pests and disease on crops can hamper the quality of agricultural pro-duce and can have a devastating effect on a farmer's bottom line.To combat the risk of pest infestations and disease, crop producers rely on a process known as crop scouting. Field-based crop scouting entails ...

  8. Deriving a new biobased product from wastewater: Production of a slow release algal-based fertilizer.

    SBC: GROSS-WEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 84

    The release of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus into our natural waterbodies is a major issue negatively impacting the United States environmentally and economically. It is estimated that it costs the Gulf Coast fishing industry approximately $82 million per year. This issue is caused by misplaced nutrients. This project uses an algae-based treatment system to remove nutrients from a plac ...

  9. Novel residential fall-risk assessment device. Prompts preventive care through precise measurement, protects privacy through use of ultrasound and not video.

    SBC: Soair, LLC            Topic: 86

    Soair's technology captures and analyzes detailed gait and stride metrics and provides a Fall-Risk Assessment score. This automated technology is accurate, passive, non-intrusive, and low cost, which means it is ideal for use in rural residential and assisted living settings.Fall-related injuries and health issues stemming from falls are major concerns for seniors and their caregivers. Not onl ...

  10. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    It is not currently possible for microalgae processors to determine if Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) treatment of algae is a commercially-attractive proposition within their application when the literature contains such a wide range of reported PEF treatment conditions, leading to unclear and inconsistent baselines. A more controlled approach to determine the effects of PEF on algae is required, whe ...
