  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. Pulsed Voltammetry Tools for Advanced Analysis of Electrochemical Power Systems

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152092

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to develop, verify, validate and deliver an analysis tool enabling researchers to use pulse voltammetry methods for enhanced understanding and accelerated development of electrochemical systems. Pulse voltammetry techniques provide high detection sensitivity, discrimination against charging currents, and information sufficient for mechanism identification and extra ...

  7. Enhanced Analysis for Pulsed Voltammetry Evaluation Tool

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152093

    Pulsed voltammetry is a characterization tool for electrochemical systems that has been around for many decades. Unlike the more commonly used cyclic voltammetry techniques, the additional degrees of freedom intrinsic to pulsed voltammetry techniques permit the decoupling of reaction kinetics from diffusion, and allow for the precise measurement of a range of reaction parameters, including the hal ...

  8. Multi-static Ground Penetrating Radar for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A15109

    We present a concept for improving standoff ground penetrating radar capabilities for detecting buried explosive hazards (BEH). Currently, standoff detection capabilities are limited to forward looking systems, which provide limited penetration of the ground surface due to the low grazing angle required for forward looking standoff detection. Additionally, forward looking arrays are somewhat limit ...

  9. Real-Time Sensor for Continuous On-Line Monitoring of Wastewater Quality

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A14062

    Real-time monitoring of wastewater quality remains an unsolved challenge in the treatment industry. The standard method of biological oxygen demand (BOD) yields slow results (five days); another standard method, chemical oxygen demand (COD), uses hazardous chemicals and does not provide direct information on potential for ecological pollution. The treatment industry has expressed need for the deve ...

  10. Next-Generation Anti-Fog Technology for Military Eyewear

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A14057

    In this Phase II project, Akita Innovations will improve the performance of our polymeric antifog coating with respect to antifog performance, abrasion resistance, and manufacturability. We will demonstrate a manufacturable material and process that meets all Army MIL-PRF-32432 requirements for protective eyewear, with superior antifog performance compared to existing products, and supply the Army ...
