  1. TrainAid: A Smart Onboard Railroad Passenger Information and Entertainment System

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 171FR4

    Onboard railroad passenger information system (OPIS) is an electronic system that provides audio and/or visual information for passengers on a train. However, information received by passengers is not guaranteed since the information and service provided by the OPISs are diverse and without a common standard. Therefore, we propose a Smart Onboard Passenger Information and Entertainment, TrainAid, ...

  3. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture, the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to add precision to all aspects of the farm. Through "mapping the farm," precision management strategies can be implemented such as: targeted herbicide application, targeted soil management, improved yield predictions, improved management of water, and other farm resources. These practices all require informa ...

  4. CBB Repel: Safeguarding the Prosperity of the Small Farm Hawaiian Coffee Industry

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    This USDA/NIFA Phase I will focus on developing CBB Repel, a novel organic, semiochemical pest management tool to support the small coffee grower of Hawaii--and the globe--by offering protection for their crops against the devastation caused by CBB. By controlling coffee berry borer infestations, we will directly support small scale coffee farms which are often family owned and relied upon as the ...

  5. "SPLAT Bloom: Focused bee pollination in safe target areas"

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    When the average American sits down to a meal, it is likely that a portion of the food in front of him or her is the result of pollination by honeybees. Bee species pollinate 71 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of human food for 146 countries. Insect pollinators, as a whole, have an estimated global worth of $200 billion and the contribution of honeybee pollination cannot be overstated. Although ...

  9. A comparison of remote sensing approaches to previous hydrologic model results to determine the potential to estimate changes in water yield from forest restoration and thinning projects.

    SBC: Blue Forest Conservation, LLC            Topic: 81

    Forest restoration, or reducing the vegetation density of overgrown forestland, is effective at reducing high-severity wildfire risk across the western US. Restoration can also increase the water yield from forests in many different geographic regions, but the effects are highly variable depending on the individual watershed location, vegetation, and climate characteristics.Accurate, affordable, a ...

  10. A Semiochemical Shield for Spruce and Douglas Fir Tress from Bark Beetle Attack

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    ISCA Technologies proposes to develop MCH REPEL, an innovative solution to manage the Douglas fir beetle (DFB) and spruce beetle (SB), two highly destructive pests of Douglas fir and spruce trees, respectively, across the western U.S. and Canada. These beetles cause high levels of tree mortality, especially during the long periods of drought that have taken place in recent decades, which make tree ...
