  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 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Enhancing Augmentative and Alternative Communication Rates in pre-K Through 6

    SBC: Speak Agent, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of a tool for touch-screen mobile devices to support students in pre-kindergarten to grade 6 who have special communication needs. The product will include artificial intelligence software that will adapt the prompts and cues to the needs of individual students. In the Phase I pilot research, the team will examine whether the prototype functions as planne ...

  7. Novel flavonoids as anti-inflammatory agents in alcoholism

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Flavonoids are ubiquitous secondary metabolites in plants with many known health benefits, which are mostly ascribed to their potent anti-oxidant activity. However, a search for novel nicotinic ligands, using high throughput pharmacological screening of a native plant extract library, and subsequently a pure flavonoid library, led to the highly surprising con ...

  8. Optimization of an innate immune stimulating adjuvant for an HIV DNA vaccine

    SBC: PROFECTUS BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION: There is a growing consensus that protection against HIV infection will require BOTH antiviral antibody responses as well as polyfunctional CD4+ and CD8+ T cells with potent lytic activity. To stimulate the breadth, potency, and rate of response required, Profectus Biosciences intends to utilize its platform technologies based on electroporation of DNA vaccines combined with genetic a ...
