  2. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  4. Soil Core Analysis Network for In-Field Measurements of Nitrogen and Other Soil Properties

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Fertilizer application rates that do not match crop usage pose an economic loss for farmers, and excess applications can result in environmental degradation of water and atmosphere. A significant portion of the nitrogen applied to U.S. fields is not needed, due to the availability of nitrogen from the soil. Soil nutrients, especially nitrogen, vary spatially and temporally, within the field and so ...
