  2. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1012

    Proposal title: Detection of THC Use in Drivers The overall objective of this program is to develop a portable, cost-effective and non-invasive sensor device for near real-time salivary THC detection to be used at roadside in drivers. This will eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming analytical techniques which have a turn-around time of several days. During the Phase I program Giner ...

  3. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: A Robust Railway Track Crack Detection System Using Thermal Signatures In Phase I, we developed a practical sensor platform suitable for mounting on the back of train. A large amount of IR images associated with rail tracks were collected on an MBTA train. Algorithms were developed to identify both right and left tracks from a moving train. To help detect track cracks, we develope ...

  4. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: 171NH1

    Proposal title: Detection of THC Use in Drivers The intoxicating effects of marijuana are of concern to the law enforcement community as well as to the general manufacturing, service and commerce community where employees may need to be screened for intoxication. A reliable method to quantitatively measure the amount of the intoxicating agent delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in suspected marij ...

  5. Crowding Information Collection and Dissemination System

    SBC: Arcon Corporation            Topic: 171FT1

    Train car crowding is a key issue resulting in passenger dissatisfaction and degraded transit service. One reason for train car crowding is an uneven distribution of passengers among the train cars which results in overcrowding of certain cars while leaving other cars sparsely occupied. If passengers waiting at a station are informed about the expected crowding levels in the arriving train, they c ...

  6. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1

    Driving under the influence of marijuana, the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States is reported to double the risk of crash involvement. As marijuana decriminalization and legalization measures continue to gain acceptance, the potential number of drivers using marijuana could rise dramatically, necessitating new ways for law enforcement to combat the pursuant increase in drug relate ...

  7. A Robust Railway Track Crack Detection System Using Thermal Signatures

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 171FR2

    In Phase I, Migma Systems propose to develop a robust system for detection of railway track surface cracks. Automated railway inspection is critical for ensuring the safety of public transportation. Rails often break under trains and broken tracks can lead to train derailment. In Phase I, we will make a prototype sensor with low power microprocessor, IR camera, GPS and temperature/humidity sensor ...

  8. Driver breath measurement of marijuana intoxication by infrared spectroscopy

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: 171NH1

    The intoxicating effects of marijuana are of public safety concern. With the expected increase in the use of this substance it is important to provide law-enforcement officials with a simple driver test for its detection. Because of the presence of the intoxication agent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vapor in the exhaled breath of marijuana users, it is possible to confirm marijuana intoxication via ...

  9. Bolstering Awareness with Real-Time Rider Alert and Cueing for Upcoming Danger Avoidance (BARRACUDA)

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

    In addition to hazards relevant to automobiles, motorcycle riders must remain vigilant for hazards that pose significant danger uniquely to motorcycles, such as uneven terrain, sand/gravel, and potholes. However, there is currently no motorcycle-specific hazard tracking or alerting system available for riders. To address this need, Charles River Analytics executed a successful Phase I effort to de ...

  10. Multimodal Alerting Interface with Networked Short-range Transmissions (MAIN-ST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 161FH2

    The connected vehicles (CV) program is a DOT initiative that uses dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to enable safer and greener surface transportation. Ongoing efforts exist to bring motor vehicles and infrastructure onto CV networks, but bicycles have been largely overlooked. Consequently, a significant need exists to bring cyclists onto these networks so other connected entities can be ...
