  1. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  2. Guided Augmented Independence Travel Aid (GAIT-Aid)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 180FT1

    Lack of transportation access affects approximately 30% of people with functional limitations. In fact, people with functional limitations experience transportation access barriers four times more than those without limitations. With the emerging market of low cost augmented and virtual reality technology, perceptual user interfaces (PUI) that interact more naturalistically with end-users are prov ...

  3. Scale-Up of ATPE Technology to Produce Highly Enriched Semiconducting SWCNTs

    SBC: SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)            Topic: N/A

    Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have unique material properties making them very attractive for use in a variety of electronic applications. However, as-grown SWCNTs contain a mixture of tubes with heterogeneous optical and electronic properties. The chiral species must be separated in order to maximize the desired properties. To date, no large scale separation process has been accomplishe ...

  4. Power Dense Free-Piston/Free-Displacer Stirling Cryocooler

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: SB141003

    Cryogenic cooling offers significant improvements to the operation of several types of electronic systems, including computers, IR detectors, and solid-state lasers. However, commercially available liquid-nitrogen generators do not meet the size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements of many defense systems. In this proposal, Mainstream identifies a method to make significant improvements in cry ...

  5. Feature Based Localization and Navigation for Miniature Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: EDGEONE LLC            Topic: SB141005

    This proposal outlines an approach for reliable autonomous Feature Based Localization and Navigation (FBLN) in the absence of self-localizing reference signals such as GPS or long baseline acoustic positioning systems. Our proposed solution will solve the FBLN problem using several complementary approaches that minimize navigation errors. These approaches include developmental hardware, SLAM, an ...

  6. Quantum Dot Mid-Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: ST13B002

    The objective of this proposal is to develop novel lead salt semiconductor quantum dot (QD) mid-infrared detectors for sensing and imaging applications. The proposed development is based on our recent study of PbSe photoconductive (PC) detector with a rec

  7. MAGNETIC IMAGE SEEKER UTILIZING NEW MAGNETIC MATERIALS

    SBC: Security Tag Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT A NEW TYPE OF SOFT MAGNETIC MATERIAL CAN BE USED FOR A VERY SENSITIVE AND LOW MAGNETIC FIELD DETECTION DEVICE. TO DETECT THE MILITARY TARGETS, ONE NEEDS A HIGHLY SENSITIVE DEVICE BUT THE EXISTING FLUX-GATE MAGNETOMETERS ARE LIMITED BY THEIR SIGNAL-TONOISE RATIO. WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR MAGNETIC MATERIALS AND IMPROVED ELECTRONICS, SOME OF THE NOISE PROBLEMS IN FLUX-GATE ...
