  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. Autonomous Navigation on Icy Moons and Ocean Worlds


    Technology currently used for terrestrial navigation is extremely limited in the challenging environments on icy moons and ocean worlds such as Europa. Autonomous platforms used to collect data from beneath these ice and ocean surfaces cannot depend on access to satellite or any other electromagnetic communication. Autonomous systems in these environments are required to perform highly-complex tas ...

  4. Vortex Control for Low-Noise DEP Urban Aircraft

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: T15

    Suppression of noise from aircraft is a vital NASA goal, especially important for the vision of Urban Air Mobility. Small urban aircraft may utilize Distributed Electric Propulsion along with advanced structural and electric motor/storage technologies to achieve the necessary flight capability. However, these aircraft utilize propellers or fans to achieve the necessary thrust, with attendant commu ...

  6. Extreme Temperature Vapor Compression Heat Pump


    Mainstream proposes to develop a vapor compression (VC) thermal management system suitable for long duration lunar equatorial missions. Because the high lunar surface temperatures during daytime operation exceed the maximum allowable temperature for most electronics, an active lifting cycle is needed rather than typical spacecraft thermal control strategies such as passive thermal links or mechani ...

  7. Non-Mechanical Dual-Mode Beam Control System for LiDARs

    SBC: Beam Engineering For Advanced Measurements Co.            Topic: Z7

    The objective of the proposal is exploring an opportunity for developing a versatile beam control system for LiDARs with both Doppler and time-of-flight measurement capability for enhanced navigation precision and reliability. New generation optics and electro-optics capabilities will be studied, adapted and customized to prove the feasibility of new generation LIDARs that could combine Doppler pr ...

  8. Broadband Vector Vortices for High Contrast Coronagraphy

    SBC: Beam Engineering For Advanced Measurements Co.            Topic: S2

    The requirement of detecting nearly ten orders of magnitude smaller signal of a planet compared to the nearby star puts forward extreme challenges for coronagraphs designed for exoplanet imaging. Vector vortex waveplates (VWs) appear to be capable of providing best performance compared to other mask technologies due to their structure as thin film coatings of continuous texture that minimizes ligh ...
