  3. Management System Display to Track Emergency Response Vehicles and Mutual Aid During a Crash Response

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 142FA2

    We present the National Incident Visualization System, NIVS. NIVS is a combination of software elements that leverage the capabilities and prevalence of smart-phone technology to create a single point of reference for aggregated information and information sharing during a fire-based emergency at an airport. NIVS aggregates GPS location and status information from personnel and resources with Airp ...

  4. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

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

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 142FT1

    To provide quality services and reduce operating costs, it is important for transit agencies to know the transit passenger origin and destination (OD) demand. Such demand often changes over time and season and is critical for optimizing transit schedules and improving transit network design. It is also useful for adjusting transit service plans in response to emergency situations such as the Marat ...

  6. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through ...

  8. Driver Fatigue and Distraction Monitoring and Warning System

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FM1

    Fatigue and distraction are among the major risk factors associated with Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes. For this effort, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop an innovative, low-cost, practical and non-contact concept called Multi-Modal Driver Distraction and Fatigue Detection/Warning System (MDF). MDF consists of four major modules: (1) Vision Module for measuring dri ...

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

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) and rider Origin-Destination (OD) flow tracking are extremely important to understand the transit system utilization and rider travel patterns to minimize transit costs and efficiently run the transit system. While the market is not short of stand-alone COTS APC sensors, there are still non-trivial challenges and issues existing both for accurate passenger counti ...

  10. Using Alternative Energy to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Production in the Transportation Sector

    SBC: Advanced Engines Development Corporation            Topic: 142OS1

    U.S. DOT’s Zero Emissions Transportation Initiative is looking to push the transportation sector greenhouse gas production to zero by 2050. This solicitation/topic addresses alternative energy sources for the light vehicle, motorcycle, and bicycle sector. With the continuing significant development in commercialization and availability of biofuels, the possibility exists to meet this goal, with ...
