  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Combined Extinction/Flourescence Absorption Diagnostics for Pharmaceutical Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the mass distribution of active ingredients and droplet sizes in pharmaceutical sprays using combined fluorescence absorption and light extinction tomography. En’Urga will modify an existing instrument to simultaneously obtain full volume fluorescence ab ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Low Cost Sensor for Mid-Chord Offset Measurements

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 141FR1

    This Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing low cost and high accuracy local position sensors and transmitters to autonomously estimate Mid-chord offset in rails. The two innovative parts of the proposed system are (1) a set of miniature and highly accurate local position sensors and transmitters for estimating the absolute positions of the mid point and end points of a 62 ...

  7. WEIGHING TRUCK COMBINATIONS IN MOTION, SOLELY ON THE TRACTOR

    SBC: Airsport Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPROVED METHOD OF WEIGHING TRUCKS WHILE IN MOTION IS PROPOSED. TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE TIME LOST AT WEIGH STATIONS, THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY NEEDS TO EXCHANGE DATA, INCLUDING WEIGHT DATA, BETWEEN MOVING TRUCKS AND ENFORCEMENT FACILITIES. LEGALLY LOADED TRUCKS WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO PROCEED WITHOUT STOPPING. THIS INVOLVES WEIGH-IN-MOTION. PRESENT WEIGHING TECHNIQUES INVOLVE LOAD CELLS OR ...

  8. AUTOMATED VIDEO DATA REDUCTION SYSTEM

    SBC: Dba Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DBA SYSTEMS, INC. PROPOSES TO FABRICATE AN ENGINEERING MODEL OF A PC-BASED VIDEO MENSURATION SYSTEM FOR THE DETAILED HUMAN FACTORS ANALYSIS ASSOCIATED WITH MOTOR VEHICLE OPERATION. THE BASELINE FOR THIS SYSTEM WILL BE DBA'S OFF-THE-SHELF 626 VIDEO TRACKER THAT TRACKS VIDEO IMAGES AT REAL-TIME RATES (60 HZ). ENHANCEMENBTS WILL INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF REAL-TIME FITTING AND LATERAL POSITIONING ALG ...
