Prospective Calling Method to Prevent Excessive Train Speed

This article proposes the use of calling as a method to help train drivers avoid exceeding speed limits. The prospective calling consists of mental-imagery calling and repetition calling. ‘Mental-imagery calling' refers to an action where a driver voices out loud the mental image they have of their driving in restricted speed sections. Repeated calling involves a driver repeating reminders to themselves as they operate the train. The effects of these two types of calling to improve prospective memory recall were confirmed experimentally. In addition, the effect of prospective calling on preventing excessive train speeds was confirmed in an experiment involving train drivers, using a train driving simulator.
