  1. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  2. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Cities must perform detailed assessments of sidewalks and streets, including curb ramps, pedestrian signals, crosswalks, street furniture, and other components to determine compliance with the Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines. However, current assessment methods are inadequate or unreasonable due to time and resources required. The objectives of this project are to: 1) develop elect ...

  4. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  6. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Department of Transportation
  7. N/A

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The proposed effort is the development of an overall material design simulation algorithm. The concept of the effort give the structural and material engineers a computer based simulation model indicating which processing variable must be controlled and w

    SBIR Phase I 2000 Department of Transportation
  8. DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSOR (DSP)/NEURAL NET-BASED VEHICLE DETECTOR

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED COMPUTER-AIDED TECHNIQUES TO DETERMINE VEHICLE CLASS AND SPEED ARE REQUIRED FOR ADVANCED INTELLIGENT VEHICLE HIGHWAY SYSTEM'S APPLICAITONS. ORINCON IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE USING DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING (DSP) ALGORITHMS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NEURAL NETWORK CLASSIFIER TO PROCESS DATA FROM EXISTING VEHICLE DETECTION HARDWARE. OUR DESIGN CRITERIA WILLINCLUDE COST ...
