  1. Use of High-Resolution Imaging Techniques for Condition Assessment and Damage Detection of Bridges

    SBC: S C SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 180FH2

    This proposal consists of an innovative integrated solution for damage diagnosis of bridge structures using a non-contact image-based measurement methodology. High-resolution and regular camera systems will be used to capture the bridge movements and the traffic passing the bridge, respectively. Computer vision techniques will be used to extract the deflection time-histories of the bridge as well ...

  2. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  3. Integrated Sensor Unit for Signalized Intersections

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 180FH3

    The DOT seeks an integrated unit capable of identifying and tracking individual vehicles with high accuracy using multiple vehicle detection inputs, including video images, radar-based detection, and vehicle-to-everything radio signal inputs (DSRC, cellular-V2X), with a deep learning-based engine to fuse collected data. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to contin ...

  4. SmartCross-Traffic Signal Interface on the Smartphone

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    On average, a pedestrian is killed every 2 hours and injured every 8 minutes in traffic crashes. 73% of these fatalities occur in urban areas. The SmartCross system aims to reduce the risk of vehicle-pedestrian crashes by providing situational awareness to the pedestrian as well as the vehicle approaching a crosswalk. The system makes use of the proliferation of smartphones to provide audio, visua ...

  5. A LOW-COST OPTICAL WEATHER IDENTIFIER FOR AN AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVING SYSTEM

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE TYPE OF PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, FOG/HAZE, HAIL) HAS TRACTIONALLY RELIED ON HUMAN JUDGMENT. RECENTLY, THE WAVE PROPAGATION LABORATORY OF DEVELOPED A TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMATIC WEATHER IDENTIFICATION USING LASER SCINTILLATION AND SCATTERING. THE TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN FIELD OPERATION. HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS TOO CLUMSY AND EXPENSIVE FOR LARGE-SCALE FIELD ...

  6. SPEECH RECOGNITION IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) (NOISE, MULTIPLE VOICES) AND PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL STRESS (PEAK TRAFFIC PERIODS, COLDS), WHILE MEETING THE NEED OF ERROR-RESISTANT OPERATION.

    SBC: Emerson & Stern Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    SPEECH RECOGNITION IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) (NOISE, MULTIPLE VOICES) AND PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL STRESS (PEAK TRAFFIC PERIODS, COLDS), WHILE MEETING THE NEED OF ERROR-RESISTANT OPERATION. A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN THAT "CAPTURES" THE INFORMATION ALREADY COMMUNICATED VERBALLY, HOWEVER, WOULD SAVE TIME NOW SPENT RE-ENTERING SPOKEN DATA THROUGH THE KEYBOARD AND REDUCE THE NEED FOR A CONTROLLER TO LOO ...

  7. AN ICING DETECTION SYSTEM BASED ON OPTICAL REFRACTOMETRIC TECHNIQUES IS DECRIBED IN THE PROPOSAL.

    SBC: First Omega Group Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN ICING DETECTION SYSTEM BASED ON OPTICAL REFRACTOMETRIC TECHNIQUES IS DECRIBED IN THE PROPOSAL. THE FIRST OMEGA GROUP, INC. PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE APPLICABILITY OF THIS CONCEPT TO ENABLE THE CONSTRUCTION OF INSTRUMENTATION THAT AUTOMATICALLY DETERMINES THE ONSET, DURATION, ACCU MULATION AND DISSOLUTION OF ICING ON AIRPORT RUNWAYS, PARKEDAIRCRAFT, AIRPORT NAVIGATIONAL AID STRUCTURES, ETC. TH ...

  8. CONDITIONS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST 5 YEARS, A NUMBER OF ULTRASONIC APPROACHES TO RESIDUAL AND APPLIED STRESS MEASUREMENTS USING EMATS HAVE BEEN REPORTED. NONE OF THESE HAS BEEN EVALUATED ON STEEL BUT THERE ARE NO FUNDAMENTAL REASONS WHY MOST CANNOT BE APPLIED TO STEEL. WHEN THE MEASUREMENT CONSTRAINTS IMPOSED BY MAKING MEASUREMENTS WITH A DEVICE ATTACHED TO A RAILCAR TESTING VEHICLE ARE CONSIDERED, TWO EMAT ULTRASONIC ...

  9. MDA PROPOSES TO DESIGN, TEST AND MARKET A NEW DRIVERS LICENSE TEST UTILIZING THE INTERACTIVE CAPABILITIES OF F COMPUTER MEDIATED VIDEODISC SYSTEMS.

    SBC: Media Design Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MDA PROPOSES TO DESIGN, TEST AND MARKET A NEW DRIVERS LICENSE TEST UTILIZING THE INTERACTIVE CAPABILITIES OF F COMPUTER MEDIATED VIDEODISC SYSTEMS. CURRENT WRITTEN DRIVERSTESTS WILL BE ANALYZED AND MORE VALID TEST ELEMENTS WILL BE DESIGNED TO MEASURE UNDERSTANDING IN THESE CONTENT AREAS. THE NEW COMPUTER MEDIATED VIDEODISC SYSTEMS PERMIT THE TESTING OF PERFORMANCE. THE SIMULATION POSSIBILITIES WIL ...

  10. RUNWAYS

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RUNWAY-IMPLANTABLE ELECTRONIC SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR MEASUREMENT OF ICE ACCUMULATION ON AIRPORT RUNWAYS AND NAVIGATION AID STRUCTURES. THE SENSOR OPERATES BY MEASURING PHASE AND FREQUENCY RESOLVED DIFFERENTIAL ELECTRIC FIELD FLUCTUATIONS WITHIN AN AIR/ICE DIELECTRIC LAYER IN RESPONSE TO AN APPLIED VOLTAGE WAVEFORM ON A RUNWAY-IMPLANTED INSUL ATED SENSOR PLATE. THE SIGNIFICANT FREQUENCY DEPENDENC ...
