The US Federal Highways Agency (FHWA) has just announced a new Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Exploratory Advanced Research (EAR) Program, soliciting for high-risk, high-payoff research and innovations to solve critical highway challenges.  During 2009 and 2010, FHWA engaged stakeholders from within and outside the traditional highway research community to identify topics of research that promise transformation and possible breakthroughs in highway technology, processes and policies.  Topics include:

  1.  Modeling Cement Hydration Kinetics
  2. Video Decoding and Feature Extraction Automation for Highway Research; and
  3. New Technology Solutions for Wayfinding and Navigation Guidance for People with Vision Impairment and Other Disabilities.
