  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Welding High Performance Bridge Steel with a Pulsed Energy Source

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    This proposal is in response to announcement DTRT57-13-R-SBIR2 in the area 13.2-FH1, Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel. It is proposed to use Homopolar Generator (HPG) Welding to join the high performance bridge steel in the 3” by 30” cross sections mentioned in the announcement in under 1 second. All of the energy required to perform the weld is stored in the ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Enhancing drought tolerance in maize using strigolactones

    SBC: ASILOMAR BIO, INC.            Topic: 82

    Drought is a major constraint on crop productivity and a significant risk for American farmers. The challenges associated with drought are likely to increase due to climate change, which will increase temperatures and alter precipitation patterns. Adapting the nation & #39;s agricultural system to water-limited conditions is a major priority to ensure food security and sustainable farm economi ...
