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.

  3. TrainAid: A Smart Onboard Railroad Passenger Information and Entertainment System

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 171FR4

    Onboard railroad passenger information system (OPIS) is an electronic system that provides audio and/or visual information for passengers on a train. However, information received by passengers is not guaranteed since the information and service provided by the OPISs are diverse and without a common standard. Therefore, we propose a Smart Onboard Passenger Information and Entertainment, TrainAid, ...

  4. SmartCross-Traffic Signal Interface on the Smartphone

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    On average, a pedestrian is killed every 2 hours and injured every 8 minutes in traffic crashes. 73% of these fatalities occur in urban areas. The SmartCross system aims to reduce the risk of vehicle-pedestrian crashes by providing situational awareness to the pedestrian as well as the vehicle approaching a crosswalk. The system makes use of the proliferation of smartphones to provide audio, visua ...

  5. From Vehicle Performance to Transportation System Performance- System Impacts of Automated Vehicles

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 151FH4

    The rapid development of automated vehicles has attracted a lot of attentions from the public in recent years. Current studies on automated vehicles mainly focus on microscopic simulations with simple network topologies and driver behaviors, and few has considered to incorporate automated vehicles into macroscopic travel demand models for the analysis in a regional network. In this project, we pro ...

  6. Locomotive Flashing Light for Trespassers and Pedestrians Warning

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR6

    The Department of Transportation (DOT) is seeking a reliable and distinctive locomotive-based flashing light warning system capable of effectively warning trespassers ahead of the train without offending regular individuals/residences in neighboring areas. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop the Locomotive Flashing Light Alerting (FLA) system, which will ...

  7. Technology to Improve upon APC Data Counting that will Provide Better Correlation to Service Plan

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 142FT1

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a video‐processing based automated passenger counter (APC) system that includes trip‐making information. The system utilizes commercially available hardware and novel, high performance algorithms to provide the desired passenger information for route planning and modifications. The algorithm development is focused on a novel extension to avideo‐ ...

  9. Mobile Device Application Component

    SBC: E-Systems Communications Corp.            Topic: 102FH3

    A key capability of Intelligent Transportation Systems is communications between the vehicles and the infrastructure and between the vehicles themselves. In particular, vehicles on the roadways carry a wealth of information on their position and velocity that, when aggregated with that from many other vehicles, provides a rich resource for traffic management. The key component is accurate vehicle ...

  10. A software solution to control bus-bunching using networked, commoditized tablets

    SBC: Via Analytics            Topic: 151FT1

    Bus bunching, the tendency of buses to cluster together, delays passengers, wastes transit agency resources, and makes drivers’ jobs more difficult. To solve this problem, we propose a control system consisting of networked tablets designed to automatically provide drivers with simple guidance based on the positions of other vehicles in the system. This proposal provides a plan to expand the exi ...
