  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 ...

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 The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices.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

  5. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

      The ability to monitor the integrity of a bridge structure and detect damage or condition changes at early stages is of significant importance for bridge operation safety.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a low cost and effi ...

  6. Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

      This Phase II proposal develops a novel third rail insulator cleaner called the Vohrtex based.on the successfully completed Phase I project that developed the low water consumption, quick cleaning tool, the “Spin Wedge.”  The Vohrtex slides on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle that rides on the track.  The Vohrtex has a pair of arms, which hang down o ...

  7. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 081FH1

      This research focuses on the development of a real-time signal timing methodology and algorithms that balance safety and efficiency.  This research consists of two phases:  Phase I was completed in December 2009; it examined the relationships between signal timing and surrogate measures of safety, namely the frequency of rear-end, angle and lane-change conflicts.  The FHWA Su ...

  8. Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS) to mitigate Dilemma Zone (DZ)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

      To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative vehicle specific Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS).  DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more conventional systems which protect a fixed area on the pavement.  Apart from incorporating advance ...

  9. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...
