  1. InFusion: Performance improvements of traffic controllers by means of data fusion and analysis

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH2

    Traffic signal controlled intersections currently receive data from various sensors including inductive loops cameras microwave and infrared technologies. These technologies measure presence and passage of vehicles at fixed locations on the intersection approaches. The emergence of IntelliDriveSM will empower intersection control algorithms with rich information from DSRC equipped vehicles. In this new environment we will receive traditional loop data SPAT messages from road side equipment and “here-i-am” basic safety messages from aftermarket or OEM vehicles.

  2. Traffic Signal Alert System for Smartphone Users at Intersection Crossing

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 111FH1

    We propose a Smartphone based system that can integrate information commonly available on a mobile phone and real time traffic signal phasing data to provide assistance to pedestrians and cyclists for safer intersection crossing. GPS accelerometer and digital compass information from a smart phone together with digital maps will be integrated to determine the location and orientation of a user. R ...

  3. SmartCross- Traffic signal interface on the smartphone

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    In 2008 there were 69000 and 52000 injuries reported for pedestrians and bicyclists respectively.A majority of these injuries were a result of impulsive decisions by road users. This proposal aims to make use of proliferation of smartphones and provide a technical solution to mitigate the risks associated with these two types of road users. The SmartCross application will enable pedestrians and bicyclists to make informed decisions for crossing a signalized intersection thereby reducing the risks.

  4. Intelligent Ridesharing for a new Mobility

    SBC: Axiom xCell, Inc.            Topic: 111FH4

    The development of a wireless mobile cloud platform that includes dynamic ride matching; utilizing in-vehicle systems and user interface; with supporting connectivity to social networks and HOV/HOT lane tolling infrastructure" will create a critical enhancement to enable an increase in ridesharing on the nation’s roadways.The objective of this Phase I research project is the development of a concept of operations that demonstrates the viability and interoperability of a mobile application that enables hands-free non-distracting dynamic ride matching to help facilitate more ridesharing.

  5. Simulation Techniques for Studying Night Driver Effects on Driver Behavior

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 112NH1

    To properly simulate nighttime visibility conditions for driving simulation, one must first consider visibility issues in human vision. From a safety point of view, the driver must see road markings to maintain lane position and navigate complex intersections. The driver must also be able to detect objects including pedestrians that must be avoided. Furthermore, the simulator should present sce ...

  6. Low Cost Full-field Tool for In-Ditch Deformation Measurement

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent cause of leaks and ruptures in pipelines. Surface corrosion is also a threat to pipeline integrity. Currently used techniques for assessing damage by means of in-line inspectin and in-ditch tools are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service. In this project Intelligent Optical Systems wi ...

  7. SPLAT ACPAB A&K for the management of the Asian citrus psyllid, the key vector of Citrus Greening.

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    We seek an attractant for the asian citrus psyllid that can be formulated with ISCA's proprietary biodegradable matrix to provide an efficient attractant blend that is specific to ACP, creating a rain-fast product that sticks to foliage, protecting and releasing the active ingredient for more than two months in field situations. Applied mechanically, this formulation will be tested among fiel ...

  8. Development of bioherbicides for rice weed control

    SBC: MARRONE BIO INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 82

    Weed management is generally viewed as a major challenge in conventional, transitional and organic cropping systems. Natural product herbicides have the potential to play an important role on organic farms by reducing reliance on tillage and cultivation and by replacing expensive hand weeding operations. On the other hand, cost effective natural products with high efficacy could replace more toxic ...

  9. Zebra Chip Diagnosis

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Potato production in the US is being challenged by the introduction of a devastating new disease, the Zebra Chip (ZC) caused by a bacterium vectored by the potato psyllid.Here we propose the development of a handheld nanosensory ZebraChip detection system that is an easy to use, reliable bionanosensory system for the instantaneous detection of the ZC bacterium in the field. The proposed handheld n ...

  10. Distributed Optical Fiber Sensor Cable for Air Quality (Air-Sense)

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The management of air quality in animal and poultry livestock environments can be challenging, not only due to the required quantitative and qualitative monitoring, but also for determining the air ventilation rates associated with elevated contaminant concentrations at high emission peaks. Ammonia, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide are generally considered the limiting hazardous gas compounds ...
