  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPTIMIZATION

    SBC: International Productivity            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE BOTH THE QUANTITATIVEAND QUALITATIVE ASPECTS OF SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPERATIONS. USING INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES, SCREENING OPERATIONS WILL BE BROKEN INTO BASIC ELEMENTS WHICH WILL THEN BE MEASURED AND INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUCH COMPONENTS AS: - PROCESSING RATES - DISTRIBUTION OF PASSENGER ARRIVALS - BOARDING VOLUMES ...

  8. OVERHEAD INFRARED VEHICLE DETECTOR

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE WIDELY USED BURIED-LOOP VEHICLE DE- TECTOR -- 3 TO 5 YEAR LIFETIME, COSTLY, INCONVENIENT TO MAINTAIN/REPLE, INCOMPATIBLE WITH SOME ROADWAYS, UNRELIABLE ACTIVATION BY SOME VEHICLES -- CAN BE OVERCOME THROUGH THE USE OF OVERHEAD INFRARED VEHICLE DETECTORS. THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH INCLUDE A SURVEY OF APPROPRIATE INFRARED SENSORS AND DEVICE ANALYSIS, D ...
