1. Migma Won DOT FRA SBIR Phase I

Migma has received the contract from U.S. Department of Transportation for FRA (Federal Railroad Administration) SBIR Phase I project. Automated railway inspection is critical for ensuring the safety of public transportation. Rails often break under trains and broken tracks can lead to train derailment. In Phase I, Migma will make a prototype sensor with low power microprocessor, IR camera, GPS and temperature/humidity sensor. It will be integrated with an existing FRED. Algorithms will be developed to detect track surface cracks through geometric thermal signature matching. This system also has self-calibration capability and does not require external illumination.

2. Installations of MigmaAdTM


Migma has expanded the marketing and sales for MigmaAdTM. The latest installation was at Wayback Burgers (https://waybackburgers.com), a franchise chain of restaurants. MigmaAdTM is made for the intelligent advertising. To attract the attention from people, it starts showing promotional information on an HDTV only when they are detected through advanced stereo camera for people sensing. Otherwise the screen is blank. Place the promotional information in MigmaAdTM and the targeted customers will see and read it! Please read the testimonial from our customers at http://www.MigmaAd.com.

3. Pedestrian/Bicyclist Data Collection at Cape Cod, MA

On 4th of July holiday weekend, MigmaCountTM Solar will be installed at a bike trial in Cape Cod, MA. Instead of using solar panels, Migma’s low-power Linux SBC will be operational for over 5 full days (i.e., 24 hours a day) using a set of portable solar batteries. Pedestrian and bicyclist data will be both saved in local disk and streamed to a remote server located in Migma Cloud. During the data collection time, DOT personnel can remotely access the system to view the live data. Since the bike trial is often shared by pedestrians and bicyclists, this data collection system can automatically separate them, which used to be a very challenging problem!

4. Data Collection at MBTA Bus

 

Working with MBTA, Migma has installed sensors on a transit bus for passenger data collection. There are two sensors, one installed at front door of the bus, one at the backdoor, and both draw power directly from the bus power system. Data collected will be used for the algorithm development. For the data collection of passengers in train, MBTA has allowed Migma to install sensors on one of its Blue Line trains.
