  1. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 82

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  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 ...

  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 ...
