  1. Demonstration of a Low-Cost Vehicle Monitoring

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 112FM1

    During the Phase I SBIR Effort, Mainstream demonstrated a unique vehicle monitoring system (VMS) for tractor trailer applications. The development was driven by the need to easily store, retrieve, and transfer key trailer parameters to the tractor and the need to electronically transfer key driver, tractor, and trailer information to roadside inspectors and maintenance personnel. In Phase I, we ...

  2. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  3. Smartphone Signal Alert Status

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH1

    The primary objective for Phase I was to design and develop a proof of concept system demonstrating the basic functionality and feasibility to deploy technology in the field. During the six-month effort, a detailed Concept of Operations document was prepared that served as a foundation for the design and development of the SmartCross system. The core components of the system: (a) Smartphone applic ...

  4. Developing a Standard Integrated Framework for Transit Assest Management Information

    SBC: Encada LLC            Topic: 131FT2

    Transit Agency Information required for managing Service centers on resources and assets that need to be available to operate the transit service as designed. An opportunity exists to design an Integrated Framework providing Service delivery and Maintenance Management Information to quantify the reliability and availability of the assets. This framework will incorporate modeling of the asset inven ...

  5. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside inspection, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their sequences attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN id ...

  6. Very High Speed Third Rail Insulator Cleaning

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    This Phase IIB proposal will accelerate the commercialization of the Phase II project that developed the Vohrtex insulator cleaner. The Phase II cleaner used self-spinning nozzles which require oversized offset jets to provide sufficient reaction force to make the nozzle spin. The oversized jets damage the surface finish of the insulators. This Phase IIB project will use small pneumatic, electric ...

  7. Coating Existing Concrete Barriers to Reduce Rollover Potential

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 121FH1

    The objective of this DoT SBIR program is to further establish the technical foundation of low friction HybridSil® Slippery Overturn Automobile Protection (SOAP) coatings on concrete barriers for drastic reductions in vehicle rollover potential and significantly increased concrete impact durability thus, enabling the rapid commercial integration of these coatings. To meet this challenge, NanoSoni ...

  8. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 111FH2

    In this proposal, we have proposed a program for twenty months to build on the basic ideas and feasibility developed in Phase I of this SBIR in order to demonstrate the practical use of DSRC technologies with signal controller for adaptive timing with a goal towards commercialization. Specifically, we intend to further develop, build and integrate advanced signal control algorithms that make use o ...

  9. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  10. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...
