  1. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail crossing, at which there is an unusually abrupt change in the level of the road's surface as it crosses the tracks, pose a risk of low ground clearance vehicles becoming stuck on the tracks. Advanced Technology and Research Corporation (ATR) proposes to develop an active detection and advance warning system. The system has three major functional componenets: measurement, decision, ...

  2. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 131FR1

    The problem of low ground clearance vehicles being stuck at tracks of highway-rail grade crossings (HRGC) poses a severe safety risk. Vehicles with long wheelbases and low ground clearance are more likely to be stuck on high-profile HRGCs. Currently there is no commercially available automated system that detects and computes the necessary critical dimensions of low ground clearance vehicles (LGCV ...

  3. Low Cost Bridge Structural Monitoring Technology / Turning Structural Monitoring Data into Decision Making Information

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

    This is a supplemental Phase II proposal submitted to DOT for additional funding and performance period extension of the on-going DOT Phase II project (contract # DTRT57-10-C-10027). The overall objective of the Supplemental Phase II effort is to complete the development of the sensor system capable of continuously monitoring the integrity of bridge structures, conduct field operation validation ...

  4. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside inspection, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their sequences attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN id ...

  5. Very High Speed Third Rail Insulator Cleaning

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    This Phase IIB proposal will accelerate the commercialization of the Phase II project that developed the Vohrtex insulator cleaner. The Phase II cleaner used self-spinning nozzles which require oversized offset jets to provide sufficient reaction force to make the nozzle spin. The oversized jets damage the surface finish of the insulators. This Phase IIB project will use small pneumatic, electric ...

  6. Polyvalent Vaccines to Protect Poultry from Avian Influenza

    SBC: MEDIGEN, INC.            Topic: 83

    Medigen successfully designed and tested a conceptually novel VLP design as a vaccine for avian influenza (AI). This vaccine isnot dependent on egg production and allows protection against multiple AI viruses by using a single preparation of VLP vaccine. For example, we demonstrated that co-expression of H5, H7, and H9 HA proteins along with other influenza proteins resulted in a triple-HA H5/H7/H ...

  7. Automated Inspection and Coding of Cases on Produce Packaging Lines

    SBC: RSI SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    In response to recent spinach and tomato/pepper recalls, the produce industry launched the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) to institute electronic traceability standards. PTI created standards for marking produce cases which includes embedding a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), lot/batch, and/or harvest date within a barcode. These new standards present challenges for adoption within the ind ...

  8. Low-Cost High-Energy Extended Rotor Turbine

    SBC: SONSIGHT INC            Topic: 86

    Well over 50 % of US land area constitutes low wind-speed sites, yet current wind turbines are not effective in low winds. To extract significantly more energy from such DOE Class 1 or Class 2 wind sites requires substantially increasing turbine blade rotor diameter (wind power is proportional to the square of the blade diameter). Recently, we have successfully demonstrated advanced low-RPM genera ...

  9. Bacteriophages for reducing Vibrio tubiashii associated mortality of shellfish

    SBC: Intralytix Inc            Topic: 87

    This project aims to develop a phage-based product (VTP-100) that will contain a mixture of lytic phages effective against a variety of hatchery strains of Vibrio tubiashii. V. tubiashii is a major cause of larval shellfish mortality, which results in increased costs to the aquaculture industry and consumer. Therefore, if our V. tubiashii phage preparation is successfully commercialized, its use c ...

  10. Humanized Monoclonal Antibodies to Treat Acinetobacter Infections


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the last decade, Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as one of the most highly antibiotic-resistant pathogens in the United States (US) and throughout the world. These infections are increasingly prevalent and highlylethal, killing 50-60% of those infected. Worse, strains of A. baumannii that no known antibiotic will kill have now emerged, and will continue ...
