  1. 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 ...

  2. Machine Vision System to Support Vehicle to Infrastructure (V21) Safety Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH1

    To keep drivers and passengers of vehicles safe, especially in rural areas with limited access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the DOT and the commercial automotive industry are keenly interested in machine vision based V2I and CAV technology to perform functions such as navigating assistance in areas where GPS or detailed maps are unavailable, caution and warning systems capab ...

  3. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based System for Advanced Freeway Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH4

    Planned or unplanned traffic events, such as work zones, collision accidents, sporting games and stormy/snowy weather, arise along our roadway systems and affect normal traffic operations. These anomaly events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. Thus, local or regional Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have spent tremendous amount of resources responding ...

  4. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  5. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  6. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Today, urban underground spaces are shared by multiple utility companies for laying power lines, gas lines, water supply/sewage pipes, fiber-optic cables, etc. The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices. Ability to accurately locate and provide awareness of bu ...

  7. Multi Modal Driver Distraction and Fatigue Detection/Warning System (MDF)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 142FM1

    Fatigue and distraction are among the major risk factors associated with Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes. For this effort, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes to develop an innovative solution called Multi-Modal Driver Distraction and Fatigue Detection/Warning System (MDF). MDF consists of four major modules: (1) Driver behavioral based measurements: such as measuring driver po ...

  8. Suppressing Utility Problems- Protection via Robotic Engineering to the Sub-Surface

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Relocating overhead utilities to the subsurface can effectively reduce safety hazards on national highways and other aboveground living spaces. A typical underground space is, however, congested with buried utilities especially in an urban environment. The recordings of those underground utilities are, furthermore, often inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, or even entirely missing as a result of ...

  9. Low Profile Microwave Radar and WiFi Sensors for Visually Unobtrusive Vehicle Detection and Travel Time Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH5

    National Park Service roadways/parkways have experienced safety and congestion issues similar to other highways in the U.S., especially in the urban areas where NPS parkways are part of the metropolitan traffic network. Visually unobtrusive traffic monitoring and data collection on NPS parkways with minimal impact on viewsheds or disturbance of the historical, cultural landscape is in critical nee ...

  10. Personalized Driving Data for Insurance Discounts & Public Benefits

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: 141FH2

    This proposal suggests research on developing the next generation of consumer experience for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) in an increasingly socially connected world while addressing the need to protect privacy. It also proposes research on methodologies to address this from the perspective of insurance actuarial science. It will enhance Agnik’s current consumer and UBI products through the follo ...
