  3. Remote sensing system to improve the safet/security, efficiency and effectiveness of Bus Rapid Transit using mini-unmanned aerial vehicles

    SBC: Harman Consulting, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The leading edge of ITS technology is the application of geo-spatial technologies to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, safety and security of transit. Firt came the application of global positioning systems integrated into geographic information systems. Lastly, remotely sensed imagery from high-resolution digital sensors on satellites, and real-time video from mini-unmanned aerial vehicles ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As part of DOT's Intelligent Vehicle Intiative program, the FHWA is developing advanced vehicle safety and driver information systems. Vision-based pedestrian detection in outdoor scenes remains an open challenge. People dress in very different colors that sometimes blend with the background. They wear hats or carry bags, and stand, walk and change direction unpredictably. The background is variou ...

  10. SPEECH RECOGNITION SYSTEM FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL

    SBC: Ufa Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLTRAINING IS INDEED A TASK THAT COULD BENEFIT GREATLY FROM THE ADDITION OF SPEECH TECHNOLOGY. THIS PROPOSAL IS ALSO BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT THIS APPLICATION REQUIRES VERY CAREFUL INTEGRATION BEING AWARE OF THE SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS AND CAPABILITIES OF THE AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES. WE OFFER BOTH EXTENSIVE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE WITH AIR TRAFFICC ...
