  1. A software solution to control bus-bunching using networked, commoditized tablets

    SBC: Via Analytics            Topic: 151FT1

    Bus bunching, the tendency of buses to cluster together, delays passengers, wastes transit agency resources, and makes drivers’ jobs more difficult. To solve this problem, we propose a control system consisting of networked tablets designed to automatically provide drivers with simple guidance based on the positions of other vehicles in the system. This proposal provides a plan to expand the exi ...

  2. Development of a Thermographic Device for Evaluating Integrity of Steel Bridge Coatings Nondestructively

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This effort is advancing the development of a nondestructive evaluation (NDE) tool for quantitative assessment of highway bridge coatings, the Infrared Coating Inspection System (IR‐CIS). The IR‐CIS can be used to improve decision‐making regarding over‐coating or recoating of bridges, by better and more fully quantifying the current condition of coatings in ways not possible using only vis ...

  4. Driver Fatigue and Distraction Monitoring and Warning System

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FM1

    Fatigue and distraction are among the major risk factors associated with Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes. For this effort, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop an innovative, low-cost, practical and non-contact concept called Multi-Modal Driver Distraction and Fatigue Detection/Warning System (MDF). MDF consists of four major modules: (1) Vision Module for measuring dri ...

  5. Technology to Improve upon APC Data Counting that will Provide Better Correlation to Service Plan

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 142FT1

    Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) and rider Origin-Destination (OD) flow tracking are extremely important to understand the transit system utilization and rider travel patterns to minimize transit costs and efficiently run the transit system. While the market is not short of stand-alone COTS APC sensors, there are still non-trivial challenges and issues existing both for accurate passenger counti ...

  7. Dual Mode Electrical Accumulator Unit (DMEAU) II

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF093173

    ABSTRACT: Electrical motors are rapidly replacing hydraulic motors in flight actuators for aircraft applications. In hydraulic systems, accumulators are used to store regenerative energy from the actuators as well as to supply peak energy demands of these actuators in response to flight control system demands. No electrical analog (Electrical Accumulator Unit) exists in production, although som ...

  9. Identification and Resolution of Events

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF083055

    ABSTRACT:The Air Force has a need to maintain strong intelligence capability in semi-permissive and anti-access area denial (A2/AD) scenarios where full-motion video (FMV)-based surveillance assets are rare or unavailable. In such environments, priority is given to leveraging any and all other sources of intelligence available, which may include ?open sources? of data available on the public Web, ...

  10. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT:A joint experimental and computational project using a carefully designed, flexible test article is proposed to assess the velocity-coupled combustion response of a representative liquid rocket injector element to transverse acoustic disturbances. In the proposed Phase II, the response of an injector flowfield at supercritical pressure conditions will be simulated, measured, and reduced i ...
