Grade Crossing Jumper Cables (EE)

This group investigated the operation of grade crossing signal systems, and the jumper cables used to disable them during maintenance activities.  The end result is a redesigned jumper system that can sense the approach of a train and reactivate the crossing even when the jumper is still in place.
