While necessity is the mother of invention, the technologists' discoveries of the potential have spread the new technology. However, as necessity is satisfied and the potential fields of development are reduced, it gets more difficult to develop new technology. The transportation has reached this matured stage. The technological forecast of 1982 that followed those of 1971 and 1976 prepared by the Science and Technology Agency also suggests the fact. Though we expected in the 1960's to put new technology to practical use, to realize it and to spread it, it tends to be delayed or the realization might not be achieved.
