  1. 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 The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices.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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  8. MAPTECH: Monitoring And Prediction of Turbine Engine Component Health

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF171052

    Inspection of turbine engine components is an essential part of standard maintenance procedures to ensure the long-term health of aircraft engines. Existing techniques are time-consuming and labor-intensive because they require point-by-point scanning and/or extensive data processing. As a result, these inspections are not cost-effective to conduct, despite being a critical part of long-term susta ...

  9. Toward Ultra-Dense Integrated Plasmonic Circuits

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF171021

    The call for increased situational awareness has led to the development of a sea-of-sensors, designed to provide real-time data from the battlefield. However, innovation in battlefield data management has been slow to catch up and is now on the verge of being crippled by a contested electromagnetic spectrum. To this end, Dr. Hamed Dalir from Omega Optics Inc. in collaboration with Prof. Ray T. Che ...
