Efforts of the Advanced Railway System Development Center in Building New Railway Systems

The Advanced Railway System Development Center is made up of researchers in the fields of rolling stock, transport, and signal communications, and the authors are making efforts in Research & Development (R&D) under the mission of “building new railway systems with integration of rolling stock and signal technologies as a base.” Figure 1 shows the technical research areas the Advanced Railway System Development Center is working on. In “Improving quality of the railway system” the authors are working on development to apply technologies to future railways in a broad range of areas such as operating the Shinkansen at faster speeds (one of the three major technical innovation items in JR East Group Vision V), improving vehicle cabin comfort, reducing environmental burden, and safety measures. And in “simplifying railway system structures,” the authors are going forward with improvement of wayside system structure, rolling stock structure, and work structure from the perspectives of low-costs, high reliability, and flexibility. The following gives an overview of some of development themes being worked on at the Advanced Railway System Development Center.
