  2. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase II, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase II culminated in the installation of one full modular mini-roundabout in both Georgia and Virginia. In addition, 3 modular mini-roundabouts were commercially sold and installed in Canada prior to the SBIR funded sit ...

  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. Active Seat Belt Tensioning (AST

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In line with the NHTSA¿s desire to encourage the development of restorable vehicle occupant safety systems here in the U.S., Mide is proposing to develop a active seat belt tensioning (AST) device that can control and tailor the rate at which the belt pre-stiffens during a crash, depending on the expected severity of the crash. To do this Mide will develop and integrated system that will take it ...

  5. Piezo Structural Acoustic Pipeline Leak Detection System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mide is proposing an innovative method for detecting leaks in pipelines. In Phase I Mide will demonstrate that piezoelectric materials can be used to sense leaks, that a low power event recorder can be used to store detected leaks and that an innovative low-power/self powered acoustic data transmission monitor system can be used to report leaks and their location. Monitor data will be transmitte ...

  6. Development of a Portable Human Error Incident Investigation Tool for the Railroad Industry

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller proposes to develop a human-centered portable human error investigation tool to aid railroad investigators in systematically identifying those factors that likely contributed to a railroad incident, and formulating appropriate corrective actions. This tool will be designed as a ¿co-pilot¿ to the investigator to ensure a meaningful and successful human error investigation. Fos ...

  7. Fiber Bragg Grating Sensor to Measure Relative Humidity in Concrete

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller, Inc. proposes to develop a system for monitoring the internal relative humidity (RH) in concrete using an innovative optical fiber strain sensor. Capable of measurement from 70 to 100% RH, with precision of ? 1%, our approach builds on the technology already developed for strain sensors and fiber optic read-out systems. Since fiber optic sensors can be frequency multiplexed, appro ...

  8. Innovative Emergency Egress Windows for Rail Passenger Cars

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This document is a SBIR Phase II proposal regarding an emergency egress window for rail passenger cars. The technical approach presented here is a result of a successful demonstration of an emergency egress window concept during the previous Phase I program. Currently available egress windows suffer from two basic problems: All require that a large amount of gasket material be removed by passen ...
