  2. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

      This SBIR project will develop a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train.  The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelength high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these measurements. The feasibi ...

  4. Transportation Vehicle Waste Heat Recovery System

    SBC: MMPG LLC            Topic: 101FT1

      A one-cylinder diesel engine will be modified to achieve a 20% to 40% improvement in fuel efficiency.  This will be accomplished by insulating the interior of the combustion chamber with a proprietary thermal insulating material.  Heat normally transferred to the engine coolant through the walls of the head, cylinder and piston will be retained within the combustion chamber where ...

  5. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle and Bicycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

      In Phase I, we developed a suite of algorithms for the detection and classification of motorcycle and bicycle using IR LED stereo camera, LWIR thermal camera, and microphone.  Test results using real data collected at streets have shown an excellent performance of this system.  In Phase II, we will further improve the system developed and focus on the system performance issues in ...

  6. New Robust Multiple Pedestrian Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

          Large Scale Field Tests of MigmaMidblockTM Under FHWA SBIR Phase I/II funding, we have developed a product, MigmaMidblockTM, using stereoscopic technologies for the pedestrian detection at mid-block crossings and signalized intersections. It has been fielded at a mid-block crossing at Phillips Academy located in Andover, MA. This product can trigger the beacon flashers once ...

  8. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...
