  1. Use of High-Resolution Imaging Techniques for Condition Assessment and Damage Detection of Bridges

    SBC: S C SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 180FH2

    This proposal consists of an innovative integrated solution for damage diagnosis of bridge structures using a non-contact image-based measurement methodology. High-resolution and regular camera systems will be used to capture the bridge movements and the traffic passing the bridge, respectively. Computer vision techniques will be used to extract the deflection time-histories of the bridge as well ...

  4. TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CONCEPT EVALUATION

    SBC: Akm Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN AIR-TRAFFIC FLOW MANAGEMENT (ATFM) TOOL BASED EITHER ON STRICT MATHEMATICAL FORMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION, AND/OR ONEBASED ON HEURISTIC KNOWLEDGE ABOUT DISTRIBUTING THE FLOW OVER THE NETWORK MAY PROVIDE A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM, PERHAPS MUCH BETTER AND OBJECTIVE THAN THE ONE MADE PRESENTLY BY A CADRE OF EXPERTS UNDER STRESSFUL CONDITIONS. THE SYSTEM SHOULD COMPLEMENT THE HUMAN DECISIONS MADE DA ...

  6. REMOTE PASSENGER BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Astrophysics Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF PROVIDING LOW COST REMOTE PASSENGER BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION IS STUDIED. RADIO IDENTIFICATION TAGS ARE EMPHASIZED. IDENTIFICATION OF ALL LUGGAGE PASSING A PORTAL AS WELL AS SEARCHING FOR A SPECIFIC PIECE OF LUGGAGE ARE ADDRESSED. DETECTION EQUIPMENT AS WELL AS LOW COST TAGS ARE CONSIDERED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AIRPORT BAGGAGE HANDLING ENVIRONMENT.

  7. SECURITY MEASURES

    SBC: Indala Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM IS TO REMOTELY AND ACCURATELY IDENTIFY PASSENGERBAGGAGE MOVING ON A CONVEYOR TO PERMIT AUTOMATIC HANDLING AND SORTING. READING IS FURTHER COMPLICATED SINCE THE BAGGAGE TAG MUST BE READ AT ANY ORIENTATION AT A DISTANCE OFAPPROXIMATELY 2-3 FEET AND IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO METAL. IT IS INTENDED TO APPLY ELECTROSTATIC COUPLING AS THE DATA TRANSMISSION MEANS BETWEEN TAG AND READER SINCE UNLIK ...

  8. MEASURING RETROREFLECTIVITY OF PAVEMENT MARKINGS

    SBC: Advanced Retro Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MEASUREMENT OF THE RETROREFLECTIVITY OF PAVEMENT MARKINGS OR TRAFFIC STRIPING HAS BEEN LIMITED BY THE INSTRUMENTATION AT PRESENT. THE MAJORITY OF THESE INSTRU- MENTS ARE HAND-HELD PORTABLE UNITS WITH LIMITED GEOMETRY ANDNEASUREMENT AREA. MOBLE UNITS BUILT BY SOME STATES ALSO ARE LIMITED IN THEIR PERFORMANCE BY STRAY LIGHT, NON-OPTIMUM GEOMETRY AND OTHER PROBLEMS. A NEW RETROREFLECTOMETER IS PR ...

  10. WEAPON IMAGE INTRODUCTION TO X-RAY BAGGAGE SCANS

    SBC: Redmann & Assoc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IS PROPOSED FOR A DEVICE TO SUPERIMPOSE STORED WEAPON IMAGES ONTO THE X-RAY SCANS OF BAGGAGE IN AIRPORTS. CRITICAL IMAGE PARAMETERS AND PROCESSING ALGORITHMS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVING A REALISTIC OVERLAY WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND DEMONSTRATED. TO MAXIMIZE THE DEVICE UTILITY, IT WILL BE PLACED BETWEEN THE VIDEO OUTPUT OF THE X-RAY MACHINE AND THE VIDEO INPUT OF THE OPERATOR'S MONITOR.SPECIAL IMA ...
