The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas ...

  2. Environmentally Neutral Electric Bike Share System

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commuting. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bike share programs in cities across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling to use bicycles to commute, either due to personal reservation or perceived terrain difficulties. This is accomplish ...

  3. Using Alternative Energy to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Production in the Transportation Sector

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commute, specifically targeting areas and demographics with below average bicycle usage, and adverse weather conditions. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bikes in bike share programs across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling or unab ...

  4. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

  5. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    Low or narrow bridges are often hit by legal-sized commercial vehicles and oversize vehicles often strike regulation bridges. In both cases the accidents result in extensive property damage, possible personal injuries and even death, and increased traffic congestion. Past attempts to warn drivers of risks for bridge hits have failed due to inaccurate measurement, high rates of false alarms, or s ...

  6. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

    Job related injuries cost the railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2005 through 2008 30.3% of those injuries occurred in the rail yard. A majority of the accidents were attributed to slips, trips and falls from the worker slipping on ballast or tripping on other trackside objects. IEM is developing a Transportation Autonomous Device that may be configured to work autonomously, with a remote ...

  7. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    International Electronic Machines (IEM) Corp. will develop the Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System, or IDEAS.  In Phase I, IEM will examine two different approaches for achieving the goal of accurate, reliable dimensioning and classification of moving vehicles at highway speeds.  IDEAS will leverage prior work by IEM for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), New York State

  8. Smart Grade Crossing Monitor System

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

    During Phase I, IEM developed a proof of concept for a Smart Grade Crossing Monitor (SGCM) using multispectral imaging technology for enhanced monitoring of highway rail grade crossings to improve safety by providing warnings of significant objects present in the crossing. The Phase I work conclusively demonstrated that multispectral imaging is clearly superior to visible or infrared spectrum imag ...

  9. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

      Railroad yards are in constant movement with potentially thousands of train cars moving over miles of track compressed into a limited area.  The harsh environment presents many safety hazards for railroad workers who must move through this environment and perform assigned tasks.  Job related injuries cost he railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2008 30.3% of those injuries ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Department of Transportation
  10. Crossing Hazard Intelligent Alert System (CHIAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

      Railroad grade crossings remain one of the primary locations for fatal or near-fatal accidents involving rail vehicles.  Multiple attempts to prevent such accidents by means such as signals and gates are severely hampered both by expense of installation and by the fact that many accidents are caused by vehicle drivers or pedestrians deliberately or through inattention ignoring or evadi ...
