Thank you, Dr. Barkan – and good morning, everyone. It is great to be up here with Andreas Cangelaris, Michael Stead, and Norman Carlson. Let me thank all the organizers, and the university, for bringing everyone together to share their research and experiences, and to take part in this discussion. I especially want to welcome everyone who traveled here from other countries. Rail systems all around the world are confronting the challenges presented by grade crossing safety and trespassing that occurs on rail property and railroad rights-of-way. So let me thank all of you for sharing your perspectives
