  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. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: 180NH2

    Current access to and analysis of the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) dataset requires significant time and technical skill. Data analysis tools are often general-purpose, designed to support the analysis of any dataset, and do not easily support the types of questions many transportation and safety engineers ask of the FARS data. Visualizations can help users understand relationships betwe ...

  3. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase II, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase II culminated in the installation of one full modular mini-roundabout in both Georgia and Virginia. In addition, 3 modular mini-roundabouts were commercially sold and installed in Canada prior to the SBIR funded sit ...

  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 ...

  5. Advanced Battery Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DLA142001

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) in partnership with Laser Marks, a laser systems integrator, has designed, developed (Phase I) and will fabricate a low-cost, automated, high-speed/high-throughput Li-ion electrode cutter capable of producing high quality electrodes in an additive manufacturing environment. Utilizing the latest in laser technology and scanning systems coupled with innovative design and ...

  6. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled Material

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase I, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase 1 culminated in the demonstration of half-scale 24’ diameter roundabout’s center circle made with the recycled boards. The same material and modular construction approach can be applied to other roundabout featur ...

  7. A Reliable Transit Passenger Counting and Re-identification System Using Occlusion Proof Biometrics

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automated passenger counter has been used in the transit systems for automated passenger counting and reporting. These systems have suffered counting accuracy issues, particularly at high rider load points, and at end-of-line count reconciliation. In Phase I, we have successfully developed systems for passenger counting and re-identification. Test results using the data collected at a transit b ...

  8. Device to Address the Competing Needs of Ensuring Lockability of Seat Belts and Mitigating Entrapment Risk

    SBC: Tool, Inc.            Topic: 142NH1

    Federal regulations require a seat belt assembly with a locking lap belt to be available in passenger seating positions to securely accommodate a child restraint system. More recently, federal regulations have been updated to improve the quality of the child restraint system and the mechanisms by which it is secured. However, there are restrictions on total weight capacities for new restraint sy ...

  9. Pedestrian Detection, Counting and Tracking Systems for Travel Surveys, Traffic Safety Systems and Traffic Control Systems

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase II, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner are selected for use. This Phase II system was field-tested at a few cities and achieved a counting accuracy about 97% over 5,000 pedestrians counted. The system can also stream the ped counts and images to a remote server. Based on the feedback from p ...
