  1. 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 ...

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

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commute, specifically targeting areas and demographics with below average bicycle usage, and adverse weather conditions. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bikes in bike share programs across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling or unab ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Driver Engagement/Status Monitoring Technologies for Vehicle Automation Applications

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: 151FH1

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech and its partners, UMTRI and Delphi Automotive, propose to develop DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system ...

  5. Advanced Rapid Non-destructive test method to determine chemical composition of concrete materials in the field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    NMR offers comprehensive capabilities for quantitative investigation of the chemistry, structure and deterioration conditions of concrete. Single-sided NMR provides opportunities for nondestructive, spatially resolved field evaluation of concrete. A first-generation single-sided NMR system was developed in Phase I project, and its potential for investigation of concrete deterioration mechanisms wa ...

  6. Research and Development of a Game Based technology and Database to Train Pre-Drivers, Young Drivers, and Older Drivers to Detect Traffic Hazards

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    Recent research suggests there are opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. For example, the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles among 16 year old drivers is some ten times higher than it is among those between the ages of 45 and 55. However, hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accompli ...

  7. Transit Safety

    SBC: Mackinac Technology Company, The            Topic: 131FT1

    The Mackinac Technology Company is proposing to develop a novel antireflection film that will virtually eliminate the reflection of interior lighting on transit bus windshields and significantly improve driver visibility and passenger/pedestrian safety. Additives are incorporated into windshield glass to reduce solar glare during daylight hours. These additives have the unfortunate effect of in ...
