  1. Guided Augmented Independence Travel Aid (GAIT-Aid)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 180FT1

    Lack of transportation access affects approximately 30% of people with functional limitations. In fact, people with functional limitations experience transportation access barriers four times more than those without limitations. With the emerging market of low cost augmented and virtual reality technology, perceptual user interfaces (PUI) that interact more naturalistically with end-users are prov ...

  2. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  3. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  5. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of MySidewalk mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. The MySidewalk application utilizes advances in social networks and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I and II research was facilitated by inputs from City of Colle ...

  6. Secure Email Agent Using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a Trust Infrastructure

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: 9020377R

    Although protocols for securing email have been available for over twenty years, these protocols, by nature of their use of asymmetric cryptography, require users to have the public key or certificate of the correspondents. Grier Forensics will develop technology to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to distribute certificates and keys, making email secure, authenticated, and confidential, curbing t ...

  7. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through ...

  8. ANALYSIS OF HANE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP

    SBC: AUSTIN RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    MODELING OF THE AMBIENT AND PROMPT IONOSPHERIC REGIONS IN A THIN LAYER APPROXIMATION ALLOWS AN EFFICIENT METHOD OF DETERMINING THE TIME EVOLUTION, PROPAGATION, AND SIGNAL STRENGTH OF THE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS.

  9. Programmable Fingerprint Emulator

    SBC: PHT AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the development of a technology apparatus which can dynamically synthesize a mechanical fingerprint pattern, from an electronic image or from a computer-generated artificial pattern, onto a 2-dimensional pliable surface whose surface height is modulated by protrusions in the z-axis direction. When mechanically applied to a fingerprint sensor-under-test, the synthesized modulat ...
