  2. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...

  4. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  5. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  9. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based System for Advanced Freeway Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH4

    Planned or unplanned traffic events, such as work zones, collision accidents, sporting games and stormy/snowy weather, arise along our roadway systems and affect normal traffic operations. These anomaly events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. Thus, local or regional Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have spent tremendous amount of resources responding ...

  10. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Today, urban underground spaces are shared by multiple utility companies for laying power lines, gas lines, water supply/sewage pipes, fiber-optic cables, etc. The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices. Ability to accurately locate and provide awareness of bu ...
