  3. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: 180NH2

    Current access to and analysis of the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) dataset requires significant time and technical skill. Data analysis tools are often general-purpose, designed to support the analysis of any dataset, and do not easily support the types of questions many transportation and safety engineers ask of the FARS data. Visualizations can help users understand relationships betwe ...

  4. COMPUTER-BASED PAVEMENT DISTRESS INDENTIFICATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Brent Rauhut Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AS PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS BECOME THE PRIMARY TOOL BY WHICH AGENCIES ALLOCATE THE FUNDS FOR PAVEMENT REHABILITATION, THE ACCURACY OF DISTRESS DATA. ONE OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE BEING MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS. HOWEVER, MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS HAVE THEIR LIMITATIONS. INACCURACIES THAT ARISE IN THE ACCUMULATION AND SUMMARIZATION OF THE DISTRESS DATA CAN LIMIT OR IMPAIR ITS USE SIGNIFICANTLY. ONE WAY ...

  6. AUTONOMOUS DRIVER ALERTNESS MONITOR (ADAM)

    SBC: Macleod Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT NEED EXISTS IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY FOR A RELIABLE, UNOBTRUSIVE DEVICE TO WARN VEHICLE OPERATORS OF REDUCED ALERTNESS. RESEARCHERS SUGGEST THAT 35-50% OF ALL HIGHWAY FATALITIES ARE CAUSED BY MEASURABLE LEVELS OF REDUCED DRIVER ALERTNESS. UNFORTUNATELY TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY USED TO MEASURE DRIVER ALERTNESS ARE IMPRACTICAL FOR WIDESPREAD USE. STUDIES DO AGREE THAT THE AUTONOMIC, S ...

  8. INNOVATIVE FIRE RESISTANT ("FIREPROOFING") COATINGS FOR USE ON COMPOSITE PRODUCTS ABOARD U.S. COMMERCIAL SHIPS

    SBC: Omega Point Laboratorytorie            Topic: N/A

    THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD (USCG) HAS LONG BEEN INTERESTED IN THE MITIGATION OF HAZARDS TO LIFE SAFTEY FROM FIRE ONBOARD SHIPS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR FIRE RESISTANT COATINGS FOR GLASS-REINFORCED POLYMERIC (GRP) COMPOSITES, WHICH MAY BE USED AS BULKHEADS, DECKS AND INTERIORWALLS, IS ONE WAY TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM. THE COAST GUARD, OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES (E.G., THE U.S. NAVY) AND NUMERO ...

  10. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...
