  1. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 111FH2

    Our goal is to create a demonstrable software system that we call IntelliFusion, which fuses Connected Vehicle data with data from traditional inductive loop detectors and uses this data to improve traffic control at intersections across the country. Our work will improve the safety of intersections and improve the mobility of traffic through adaptive traffic control which uses data produced by I ...

  2. Coating Existing Concrete Barriers to Reduce Rollover Potential

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 121FH1

    The objective of this DoT SBIR program is to further establish the technical foundation of low friction HybridSil® Slippery Overturn Automobile Protection (SOAP) coatings on concrete barriers for drastic reductions in vehicle rollover potential and significantly increased concrete impact durability thus, enabling the rapid commercial integration of these coatings. To meet this challenge, NanoSoni ...

  3. Low Energy Comminution of Herbaceous Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Size reduction, or comminution, is a fundamental processing step for lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks used as a raw material for conversion to biofuels. Grinding or milling of herbaceous materials such as corn stover, switchgrass, miscanthus and other biofuel feedstocks consumes a lot of energy, produces particle shapes that are difficult to handle, requires dry raw material, and often results i ...

  4. Advanced Control System for Biofuel Combustion

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: 81

    Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass burners. To overcome these challenges, inexpensive and effective combustion control solutions for small ...

  5. Electrosedation and rested harvest as strategies to improve the quality of farm-raised fish

    SBC: Smith-root, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Traditional chemical sedatives for the processing of farm-raised fish are considered animal drugs that are subject to specific regulations and usage constraints (as well as chemical-bath disposal concerns). As an alternative, we propose to evaluate the use of mild, non-lethal electrosedation techniques to narcotize farm-raised fish in an effort to evaluate the technologys potential to reduce pre-h ...

  6. Solar Powered Colony Health Monitoring System for Pollinators

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 813

    This project will provide researchers a valuable tool to better learn about bees in almost any enviornment. The self contained power through PV panels will allow these hives to be used without the need to an outside powersource. Researchers can monitor stationary hives, as well as commercial pollination operations. Apiarists can also use these hives to gather data and monitor their own colonies. T ...

  7. Innovative Removal of Nitrate and Nitrites from Contaminated Well Water

    SBC: Micronic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Micronic Technologies has developed a patent pending low-pressure, low-temperature, rapid evaporation technology to treat contaminated water. This technology uses no chemicals, filters, or membranes in a low-pressure system a blower and a chambered cylinder to produce a tornado effect that creates micro-droplets of water for rapid evaporation and recapture after dissolved solids are shed. It is lo ...

  8. Enhancing rural small business opportunities by developing a low cost heat source and developing the utilization of char as a soil amendment

    SBC: SYNTHIGEN, LLC            Topic: 86

    Rural communities that rely on, and are part of an agricultural-based economy where seed and grain cleaning facilities operate are plentiful in the Pacific Northwest and other parts of the U.S. Creating new opportunities for employment and income generation in these communities is frequently difficult because it can require considerable amounts of capital investment and new market development. We ...

  10. Quantitative dual-mode scanner for breast cancer therapy

    SBC: PET/X LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop a dual-mode PET/x-ray mammography scanner (PET/X) to improve the way in which breast cancer therapies are matched to patients by providing early evaluation of therapy efficacy through 'window' studies on an individual patient basis. More than 200,000 women in the US start therapy for breast cancer each year. In 2 ...
