Is the study limited to solutions that only address POV collisions? While the statistics cite POV severity of accidents, would non-POV extensions to the solutions be of benefit to the study and proposed solutions?1 vote
The boundaries of what is being defined as an Edge Server in an edge computing environment matter to reach the desired number of intersections and videos being processed. Is the intent to bound the definition to a single physical box? And is there a requirement as to where the server should be located?1 vote
Is this project limited to one geographic location with one or more intersections or is there an option to compare it against other locations with different situational aspects relating to traffic systems and multi-modal patterns?1 vote
For Locomotive-mounted Track Safety Assurance Systems, do these necessarily need to be continuously mounted systems, or could they work in tandem with the locomotive, such as radar or aerial systems?1 vote
Is it mandatory to propose a two-tier system as a solution? Very different competencies are required in the two tiers. If a proposal in the first tier for leakage detection is designed in such a way that conventional sealing measures are sufficient and well blowouts cannot occur, can a proposal for the second stage be omitted?1 vote
Is there a target for the proposal (a) what the solution may cost per well (range)? And (b) in terms of quantities?1 vote
What constitutes an Autonomous Vehicles?
7. Train car?
8. Trolley or Subway car?
10. Large Airplane?
11. Small Airplane?
12.. Lightweight Drone?
13. Heavyweight Drone?
14. Dirigible (lighter than air - blimp)?
And for each detector what are:
1. Required maximum scan time?
2. Maximum weight?
3. Maximum size (dimensions)?
4. Maximum power requirement?
5. Maximum price to produce?
6. What gases or mixture of gases to detect?
7. Range of detection - ppm to ppb to ppt?1 vote
Given that this research project will "...develop an edge server-based AI application," but apparently not the edge computing platform, what assumptions can the offerors make about the resources of the edge computing platform? This is critical because artificial intelligence applications for video analysis generally require specialized Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) in addition to standard Central Processing Units (CPUs) found in business processing computers. Parallel algorithms applied simultaneously to multiple video sources will also require a number of GPUs that is proportional to the number of video sources (not necessarily one-for-one, but it should be obvious that the processing capabilities of a single device are are not infinite).

What are the sizes of these tanks and cylinders? What is the material type?1 vote
Can I write the proposal on developing a model for concrete curing quantification? Should I must write the proposal for developing a device?
I think a model also can be used for quantifying concrete curing. Thanks.1 vote
Can clarification of scope be provided? Is the proof-of-concept report intended to focus on one technology? or the evaluation and selection process for multiple technologies?1 vote
What is the speed limit range at the bridge needing load posting enforcement? If needed by the enforcement system, may we lower the speed limit?
What kind of pavement is at the end of the target bridge, PCC or AC? If it is AC pavement, may we install a section of PCC pavement for the system?
Does the pavement conditions at the end of the bridge meet ASTM E1318-09 specifications?1 vote
Data sharing agreements would be beneficial to conduct an analysis. Availability of all data should be considered in order to support RBDM and Data Supported Decision Making.1 vote
Does this topic seek to pilot only software and informational resources, or can the “technological solutions” also include the implementation of hardware in order to, for example, provide a first-mile/last-mile connection to public transit, or to access grocery stores directly?
An app or software tool can be useful for those within the service area of public transit, but if there is a first-mile/last-mile problem, or no existing transportation option to get them to the grocery store, software tools alone cannot help them.1 vote
Can the proposed innovation be simply to provide leak detection or must it also contain a well control solution?
Leak detection and well control represent two very different technologies and our company does not cover both. We unfortunately don't have a partner for well control - so would it be of interest for us to propose our novel leak detection technology by itself?1 vote
Are there specifications as to whether the system should measure continuously or are measurements also permissible at intervals (every minute, every hour, every x hours, every x days)?1 vote
Are there any requirements or need to define the blockchain type/architecture in the proposal or is a general comparable public blockchain (e.g. etherium) sufficient?1 vote
The solicitation calls for a system capable of "Automatic data transfer via cellular, satellite, or other means not requiring human intervention". Is it the intent of the solicitation that the proposed solution should have its own means of providing off-locomotive communications independent of the existing locomotive data transfer capabilities?0 votes
