  1. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail crossing, at which there is an unusually abrupt change in the level of the road's surface as it crosses the tracks, pose a risk of low ground clearance vehicles becoming stuck on the tracks. Advanced Technology and Research Corporation (ATR) proposes to develop an active detection and advance warning system. The system has three major functional componenets: measurement, decision, ...

  2. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 131FR1

    The problem of low ground clearance vehicles being stuck at tracks of highway-rail grade crossings (HRGC) poses a severe safety risk. Vehicles with long wheelbases and low ground clearance are more likely to be stuck on high-profile HRGCs. Currently there is no commercially available automated system that detects and computes the necessary critical dimensions of low ground clearance vehicles (LGCV ...

  3. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...

  4. Anonymous Traffic Probes for Travel Time and O-D using Bluetooth IDs

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Traffax Inc. proposes a system based on Bluetooth point-to-point communications to anonymous detect vehicles, establish travel times, and develop accurate Origin & Destination (O-D) matrices. Preliminary research performed at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, Indiane Department of Transportation, and Purdue University identified the use of consumer devices ...

  5. A novel detection and warning system to mitigate dilemma zone (DZ) issues

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 082FH1

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative and inexpensive solutions using In-roadway detectors and embedded pavement flashing light warning system to solve the dilemma zone (DZ) problem. Detection is performed by a pair of inductive loops in each travel lane, 800 to 1200 ft from intersection. The detection system includes prediction of vehicle travel time to the intersection and ...

  6. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 081FH6

    The ability to monitor the condition of a bridge structure to detect damage or changes in condition at early stages is of significant interest to many bridge owners. Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques. In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a bridge structural health monitoring syst ...
