  1. Personalized Driving Data for Insurance Discounts & Public Benefits

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: 141FH2

    This proposal suggests research on developing the next generation of consumer experience for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) in an increasingly socially connected world while addressing the need to protect privacy. It will enhance Agnik’s current consumer and UBI products through the following innovations:  Collective Incentives and Game Theory: Explore the problem of risk modeling and underwriti ...

  2. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and reduce / eliminate the additional steps required to board the train. An improved anti-skid step wil ...

  3. Affliation Strength/Risk Model Development for Motor Carrier Succession

    SBC: Integrated Technology Solutions Inc.            Topic: 132FM1

    The vetting process, at FMCSA, is used to identify new entrant carriers with an affiliation to existing or defunct carriers which had safety fitness issues (chameleon or reincarnated carriers). Currently, the vetting process uses only data available within FMCSA. The current vetting process is staff intensive and costly. The goals of Phase 1 are to discover externally available: Data and tools tha ...

  4. Low Profile Microwave Radar and WiFi Sensors for Visually Unobtrusive Vehicle Detection and Travel Time Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH5

    The major concern of National Park Service (NPS) is that the traffic sensors must be visually unobtrusive for minimizing the impact on viewsheds or the disturbance of the historical, cultural landscape. We propose an innovative visually unobtrusive vehicle detection and travel time monitoring system to provide high quality traffic and travel time information. The system is low cost, stand-alone, l ...

  5. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    There is a need to develop new technologies that will robotically relocate existing overhead utilities to the subsurface within crowded rights-of-way in an accurate and safe manner, at an acceptable cost to the project’s owner, using construction methods such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), in collaboration with The Louisiana Tech Trenchless Technolo ...

  6. Corrosion Resistant Prestressing Strand for Prestressed Concrete Bridges

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 141FH6

    Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing corrosion-resistant strands has been dampened by their high cost and some enduring technical concerns. In recen ...

  7. LookOut: A Scenario-based Driving Simulator for Enhancing Hazard Detection and Avoidance

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    the goal of driver's education is to provide students with the skills necessary to safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle. While effective training has been implemented since the 1930s, research suggest opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. Hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accom ...

  8. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway‐rail grade crossings, at which there is an abrupt change in the level of the road surface as it crosses the tracks, present a severe hang‐up risk to vehicles with low ground clearance. In Phase I, ATR developed a conceptual design for a Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection System (LGCVDS) to actively prevent such accidents. The LGCVDS functions by measuring vehicles on approach to th ...

  9. Dilemma Zone Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

    To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS). In this proposed Phase IIB work, IAI team will deploy and evaluate an enhanced version of DCWS that was designed in earlier phases. DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more c ...

  10. Three-dimensional detection, ranging, and mapping of utilities and underground infrastructure at intersections using step-frequency ground penetrating radar without traffic control

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 122FH5

    In phase I, a concept to detect, recognize, compute depth, and map utilities and underground infrastructure was demonstrated at traffic speeds with advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SF-GPR). The description of the proposed non-destructive evaluation method was based on first principles to estimate the extent of penetration of a three-dimensional SF-GPR signal into the roadway fo ...
