  1. Intellifusion- A System for Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 111FH2

    Our goal is to create a demonstrable prototype system at the end of Phase I which fuses IntelliDrive (SM) data with data from traditional inductive loop detectors and uses this data in a modified NEMA TS2 traffic signal controller within eTEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic to reduce traffic delay at intersections.  Our work will improve the safety of intersections and improve the mobility of traffic through adaptive traffic control which uses data produced by IntelliFusion, the product of our research.   The process of data fusion involves merging data obtained fr

  4. Demonstration of Image-Based Change Detection Using a Prototype Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Demonstration of Image-Based Change Detection using a Prototype Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection 3/16/2018 Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. Machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago to help alleviate these concerns; however, due to the un ...

  5. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas ...

  7. Teacher Dashboard 2.0 for Learning Creative Computer Programming

    SBC: Vidcode Inc.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, the developers created VidCode, a platform for students in grades 4 to 12 to learn computer science skills by using digital media assets (e.g., photos, audio, graphics) to create special effects in videos while learning about the code responsible for the action. In this project, the developers will create a prototype dashboard to provide teachers tools to mana ...

  8. Modernizing the Reading Roots Intervention

    SBC: SIRIUS THINKING LTD            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, researchers developed the Reading Roots, a non-technology delivered intervention for grade school that alternates teacher- delivered instruction with activities where children practice content and skills while working with a peer partner. In this project, the team will create a prototype of a technology-delivered version of Reading Roots, by integrating multim ...

  9. A More Perfect Union

    SBC: GIGANTIC MECHANIC LLC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the developers will create a prototype of a More Perfect Union, a role-playing game for high school civics and history. The technology-facilitated intervention will provide a library of simulations on a range of topics and historical moments inspired by the AP U.S. History Curriculum and the Common Core History Standards. In the game students will be cast in the roles of leading p ...
