The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  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. Simultaneous Production of Multiple Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Using Marine Microalga Pleurochrysis carterae

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: 87

    The cardiovascular benefits of fish oil enriched in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs), namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are well-documented. When combined with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), n-3 PUFAs have been shown to reduce the risk of chronic inflammatory disorders, such as asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. However, the consumption of fish oil remain ...

  7. Precise Location Tracking of Livestock using RFID Phase and Nonlinear Filtering

    SBC: CLAIRVOYANT TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: 83

    Ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID offers longer read range and better immunity to interference when compared to low frequency technology for livestock identification. However, the longer UHF read range can create an over-range problem by reading tags in local "hot spots" well outside of the intended read zone. With UHF it is not enough to know that a tag has been read, but you must know where the ta ...

  8. Development of a serotype-independent vaccine based on Salmonella T3SA proteins

    SBC: INTEGRATED ANIMAL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 83

    Salmonella is a bacteriathat causessevere stomach and gut distressinpeople andis the leading cause of food-borne illnesses resulting in hospitalization and death in the US. The resulting economic losses caused bythisbacteriain the livestock industry are staggering with much of the loss attributed to recalls, permanent disruption of the gut lining impairing nutrient absorption, and necessary cullin ...

  9. Value-Added Production of Sorrel Juice from Red Sorrel Plant

    SBC: Jimfina Group LLC            Topic: 812

    Engaging in alternative enterprises is one of the options that small farms could use to enhance farm income. In addition to enhancing farm income, alternative enterprises help to diversify farm operations and reduce the risk associated with farm income. Another option to enhance farm income is to engage in value-added activities. This project proposes to grow red sorrel (sorrel) as an alternative ...

  10. 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 ...
