  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. MAGNETIC SHIELDING OF LSM AND EDS MODULES

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    MAGNETIC LEVITATION (MAGLEV) TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON MAGNETS OF INTENSE FLUX DENSITITES FOR PROPULSION, LEVITATION AND GUIDANCE. THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS REGARDING POSSIBLE PHYSIOLOGICAL, LEVITATION AND GUIDANCE. THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS REGARDING POSSIBLE PHYSIOLOGICAL DAMAGE TO HUMAN BEINGS EXPOSED TO HIGH MAGNETIC FIELDS. CONSEQUENTLY, THE ABILITY TO SHIELD MAGLEV MAGNET FIELSD FROM PASS ...

  5. AUTOMATED RAIL-BASED WHEEL GAUGE

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    INCREASED LOADS, HIGHER SPEEDS, AND A MORE EFFICIENT USE OF THE NATION'S FLEET OF LOCOMOTIVES AND FREIGHT CARS IS PUTTING INCREASED STRESS ON RAILROAD WHEELS. ALSO, A REDUCED WORKFORCE COMBINED WITH MORE RESTRICTED SIGHT LINES AND FEWER OPPORTUNITIES FOR WHEEL INSPECTION ARE REDUCING THE QUALITY OF THE INSPECTIONS THAT DO TAKE PLACE. MANY RAILROADS HAVE RESPONDED BY DEVELOPING OR PURCHASING PRODUC ...

  7. DESIGN STUDY FOR A REDUCED ENERGY AND SIZE, PULSED DEUTERON ACCELERATOR FOR USE IN A PFNA EXPLOSIVES DETECTION SYSTEM.

    SBC: National Electrostatics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A PROTOTYPE FOR AN EXPLOSIVE DETECTION SYSTEM USING PULSED FAST NEUTRON ACTIVATION (PFNA) TECHNIQUES USES AN ELECTROSTATIC TANDEM ACCELERATOR TO PRODUCE NANOSECOND WIDTH PULSES OF 6 MEV DEUTERONS. WHILE THIS APPROACH ALLOWS ONE TO PRODUCE NEUTRONS OF AN ENERGY SUITED TO THE REACTION ONE HOPES TO EXCITE IN SAMPLE ATOMS OF INTEREST, IT REQUIRES THE USE OF A FAIRLY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE ACCELERATOR SYS ...

  8. FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: ANALYSIS & SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO DEVELOP SYSTEMS THAT CAN DETECT EMERGENCY AND/OR ABNORMAL OPERATIONS OF GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT AND WARN OR ALERT THE PILOT OF ITS EFFECT AND RECOMMEND PROCEDURES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I STUDY IS TO INVESTIGATE THE APPLICABILITY OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY TO THE SOLUTION OF THIS PROBLEM. THE APPROACH INVOLVES: (1) CLARIFICATION OF THE OVERALL EMERGENCY SITU- AT ...

  9. INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES OR SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED TO ATTENUATE FIRE RADIATION THROUGH WATER SPRAYS OR FOGS.

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES OR SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED TO ATTENUATE FIRE RADIATION THROUGH WATER SPRAYS OR FOGS. ONE CONCEPT TO FIGHT FIRES INSIDE A CABIN IS THROUGH THE USE OF AN ON BORAD SPRINKLER SYSTEM. IN ORDER TO ENABLE HE DESIGN OF INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES OR SYSTEMS TO ATTENUATE FIRE RADIATION, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP ENGINEERING TOOLS TO PREDICT ATTENUATION. IT IS NECESSARY TO RELATE VARIOUS DESIGN ...

  10. SEVERITY IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES

    SBC: J & J Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED FOR DETERMINING THE S EVERITY OF MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS INVOLVING CRUSHING OF THEVEHICLE ROOF. AN INTERACTIVE METHODOLOGY WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH WILL BE BUILT AROUND A MODEL OF THE VEHICLE MOTION DURING ROLLOVER AND SUBSEQUENT IMPACTS. THE MODEL WILL BE DRIVEN BY ACCIDENT DATA AND USER INSTRUCTION. IT WILL YIELD ESTIMAES OF THE VEHICLE ANGULAR AND TRANSLATIONA ...
