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

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase I, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase 1 culminated in the demonstration of half-scale 24’ diameter roundabout’s center circle made with the recycled boards. The same material and modular construction approach can be applied to other roundabout featur ...

  2. A Reliable Transit Passenger Counting and Re-identification System Using Occlusion Proof Biometrics

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automated passenger counter has been used in the transit systems for automated passenger counting and reporting. These systems have suffered counting accuracy issues, particularly at high rider load points, and at end-of-line count reconciliation. In Phase I, we have successfully developed systems for passenger counting and re-identification. Test results using the data collected at a transit b ...

  3. Device to Address the Competing Needs of Ensuring Lockability of Seat Belts and Mitigating Entrapment Risk

    SBC: Tool, Inc.            Topic: 142NH1

    Federal regulations require a seat belt assembly with a locking lap belt to be available in passenger seating positions to securely accommodate a child restraint system. More recently, federal regulations have been updated to improve the quality of the child restraint system and the mechanisms by which it is secured. However, there are restrictions on total weight capacities for new restraint sy ...

  4. Pedestrian Detection, Counting and Tracking Systems for Travel Surveys, Traffic Safety Systems and Traffic Control Systems

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase II, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner are selected for use. This Phase II system was field-tested at a few cities and achieved a counting accuracy about 97% over 5,000 pedestrians counted. The system can also stream the ped counts and images to a remote server. Based on the feedback from p ...

  5. PROPOSAL TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE FREIGHT INFORMATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Colography Group Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FOLLOWING PROPOSAL PROVIDES THE RATIONALE AND METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GEOGRAPHICALLY DETAILED VISUAL DATABASE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEM TO SUPPORT THE INTERMODAL PLANNING REQUIREMENTS OF ISTEA. CURRENTLY, STATES AND METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATIONS HAVE ACCESS TO LIMITED AND INCONSISTENT FREIGHT INFORMATION RESOURCES WITH WHICH TO INTEGRATE INTO INTERMODAL PERFORMANCE SY ...

  6. ELIMINATION OF TURBULENCE-INDUCED STRUCTURAL FAILURE AND CONTROL LOSS IN VERY LIGHT AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM UTILIZING THE FREE-WING CONCEPT HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR LIGHT AND VERY LIGHT WING-LOADING AIRCRAFT THAT ACCOMMODATES MODERATE TO HEAVY TURBULENCE WITHOUT TRANSMITTING HIGH GUST LOADINGS TO THE AIRFRAME OR THREATENING LOSS OF CONTROL. THE PROJECT WILL TEST THE SYSTEM IN A RESEARCH VEHICLE APPROXIMATING THE DESIGN CRITERIA SET FORTH IN 14 CFR, PART 103; THE RESEARCH VEHICLE IS UNMANNED.

  7. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF NOTEBOOK COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO COLLECT TRIP GENERATION DATA AT INTERMODAL PASSENGER AN FREIGHT TERMINALS

    SBC: Transportation Consulting Mda            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE INTERMODAL SURFACE TRANSPORTATION EFFICIENCY ACT, THERE BECAME A HEIGHTENED AWARENESS THAT OUR UNDERSTANDING OF INTERMODAL AND MULTIMODAL FACILITIES WAS LIMITED. PRIVATE ENTERPRISE HAS BEEN WORKING FOR MANY YEARS ON APPLICATIONS WHICH WOULD ALLOW FOR A PACKAGE TO MOVE FROM POINT A TO POINT B BY THE MOST EFFICIENT MODE, WITH THE PURCHASER OF THE SERVICE ONLY BEING AWARE OF A ...
