The winning entry reads:

STOP THE TRAIN! REAct is Railserve's incident avoidance technology. Our battery-powered REAct devices are worn on crew member's safety vests and are directly connected to the locomotive. In the case of immediate danger, any crew member pushes the button, and the locomotive will immediately apply the emergency brake. All without having to contact the operator. Safe AND Smart.
