Friction Testing Project – Part 2 (Field Testing for Road Surface Prediction)
Modern vehicle safety systems such as anti-lock brakes and stability control rely upon accurate measurement of wheel rotation for operation.Wheel rotation data for each of four wheels is available in real time from a vehicle’s data bus (aka CAN bus). Testing conducted with highly instrumented vehicles on the Virginia Smart Road has revealed that the relative rotational rates of driven versus non-driven wheels vary as conditions such as road slope and friction change. The purpose of this activity is to perform on-road testing in semi-controlled conditions to validate whether the measured relative rotational rates of vehicle wheels can be used to predict road surface friction in real time.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on FedBizOpps as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
