  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Seamless Flexible Fuel Tanks- 65% TOC Reduction

    SBC: Response Technologies, LLC            Topic: DLA152001

    The DoD uses flexible fuel bladders in multiple air, ground, and sea vehicles because they: 1) easily fit into almost any space, 2) are corrosion resistant, and can often be self-sealing and explosion resistant, 3) allow for customized placement of fittings and connection points, and 4) these flexible tanks can collapse as they empty, thereby reducing the need for venting and minimizing sloshing a ...

  7. 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 ...
