Irradiated Road Surface System using Truck-Mounted Electron Beam Technology
Fermilab has developed a concept for truck-mounted electron accelerators that can be used for in situ treatment of freshly laid asphalt, turning it into a tougher, longer-lasting material. This could significantly extend the life of our roads and allow high quality pot-hole repair even on the coldest winter days.
Low-Altitude Laser Altimeter to Assist UAV Autolanding
A lightweight, laser-based sensor system that augments an onboard autopilot with accurate altitude and attitude measurements, enabling automated landing of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Nanoparticle-based Holographic Display
This display system makes use of nanoparticles, able to be produced in bulk, whose light-scattering properties can be controlled to display an image with depth perception (in essence, holographic) on non-powered transparent or opaque surfaces including windshields, windows, glasses, handheld devices, and even fabrics.
