  1. Siting for Marine Hydrokinetic Devices by Means of a Self-Propulsion Glider

    SBC: DEHLSEN ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: 812SG

    Dehlsen Associates, LLC (DA) founders have a long history with renewable energy, establishing both Clipper Windpower and Zond Systems (now GE Wind). DA’s Aquantis C-Plane is designed to provide 4MW per platform in ocean currents with a target cost of energy of 0.08 $/kWh by means of off-the-shelf, highly reliable components. Though previous ADCP sampling was performed in partnership with Flori ...

  2. Program Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop a system that can automatically count the number of gray whales that pass nearby a shore-based installation. The system will be comprised of infrared cameras and a set of computers, which automatically scan the video for whale blows. We have implemented and tested such an algorithm using Matlab during Phase I and we propose to extend this algorithm to run in real time dur ...

  3. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: Automa Aurora Inc.            Topic: 121FT1

    The project develops a flexible (flex) route bus system, as an alternative to fixed route system plans, to enhance a transit rider’s experience by routing buses in real-time based on rider demand. The architecture leverages existing smart phone, wireless, Internet and GPS technologies but drives innovation through online routing algorithms based on recent theoretical work in optimization and mac ...

  4. Innovative Solutions to Effectively Enforce Anti-texting Rules on Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Drivers

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 121FM2

    Distracted driving could have severe repercussions leading to loss of life, loss of property, and expensive lawsuits. While there can be many reasons for the driver to get distracted, research shows that the probability of accidents from texting/web-surfing while driving is an order of magnitude higher. Although federal law prohibits texting by operators of commercial vehicles and has strict penal ...

  5. Fast Real Positioning using GNSS

    SBC: SUB CARRIER SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH2

    This project initially examines the theoretical basis by which low cost “automotive grade” (typically devices with L1 signal tracking only) GPS and GNSS devices can be made to perform with a very rapid start-up and acquisition times and still maintain a high level of sub meter kinematic accuracy when in the presence of various local correctional data such as RTCM. The resources of such a chip ...

  6. SmartWorkZone- Situational awareness messages in the vehicle when driving through a work zone area.

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 122FH1

    Congestion due to a work zone can cause accidents, as the drivers may not be prepared to take sudden actions ahead of a work zone or in some cases may not have enough visibility/time. Transmitting alert messages in advance can enable the driver to take safety precautionary measures so that it is beneficial to both the driver and the work zone personnel. The proposal aims to develop a scalable sol ...

  7. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 122FA1

    Loss of control associated with an inability of pilots to recover from upsets and unusual attitudes is the leading cause of world-wide commercial jet accidents. A key component in many of these events is pilot spatial disorientation. Improved pilot training in these abnormal flight conditions, including the ability of training simulators to replicate spatial disorientation, is needed to reduce l ...

  8. Safer, Greener, User-Friendly Bus and Rail Transit

    SBC: Bevilacqua-Knight Inc.            Topic: 101FT1

    Our Phase I effort demonstrated that a small air/steam propulsion system could provide immediate power without a boiler, and that power could be varied by varying the ration of water and air in the propellant mix. In this proposed Phase II effort this same system will be scaled to a larger bench version for analysis of performance and efficiency. Following analysis of that data, the system will ...

  9. Transportation System Performance Measurement Using Existing Loop Infrastructure

    SBC: Iteris Inc.            Topic: 102FH2

    Research finding during Phase I of this project have led the research team to conclude that it is feasible to use 60-Hz samples from single loop detectors in order to perform re-identification between loop detector stations on freeways. The method employed was robust to loop calibration errors, easily corrects for metadata concerning the exact location of the loops and demonstrated that it was po ...

  10. Commercialization of DGPS Compression and Modeling Methods for Vehicle Use

    SBC: SUB CARRIER SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: 102FH1

    The primary technical objective to be achieved during Phase II is the transition from the developed laboratory prototype, which clearly demonstrated the feasibility and superior outcomes of the approach, to a deployable system consisting of two key elements (the reference station - compression side and the rover - expansion side) and packaging them into a form suitable for commercial sales to earl ...
