  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. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: NAVMAR APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR7

    Rail line intrusion events, initiated by dismounted individuals on foot or in vehicles, often result in devastating collisions with a train, with outcomes unfavorably to the intruder. A need exists for a locomotive mounted advanced remote detection system that can autonomously detect and characterize an intruder, at a distance, alerting the operating engineer to take corrective action. Navmar Appl ...

  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. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...

  6. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    This proposal leverages our current DOT-funded SBIR Phase II project developing software to assist truck drivers and companies to fatigue optimize driver scheduling and route planning. This project will build a set of web-services specially designed to provide objective quantitative feedback to truck drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers about fatigue from fatigue stressors common in trucking ...

  7. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  8. Development of roses resistant to rose rosette disease

    SBC: CONARD-PYLE CO. THE            Topic: 82

    The ornamental sector is the most valuable non-food crop sector of US agriculture. However, changing climates and increased interstate commerce have increased the ease with which diseases can spread and threaten this valuable industry. In the past few decades, Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) has spread from its source in the Rockies, through the Mid-West to the South and major populations centers of th ...

  10. Research & Development of Ergonomic Tools & Equipment for Women Livestock Farmers

    SBC: GREEN HERON TOOLS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Some 30% of U.S. farm operators are women, and an unspecified number of "farm wives" and other female helpers also perform farm chores. Despite anatomical, physiological and anthropometric characteristics that place women at elevated risk for some farm injuries, women have typically had to use agricultural tools and equipment ill-suited to their frames, physical strengths etc.Green Heron Tools, LL ...
