The system de- tects the food event, determines the level of emergency (high, medium or low), and then, automatically informs the control center and/or supervisors of the level of emergency via text and voice message. The system also sends an actual photo of the site and the level of warning and sends a real-time warning to any train in the immediate location or approaching the danger- ous area.
