Japanese National Railways have shown spectacular progress in the modernization of their rolling stock by developing a complex electronic control system incorporating the latest technology. This was necessary because conventional methods of inspection, relying mainly on the five senses (hearing, sight, etc...), are liable to produce errors due to variance in the measured values caused by the inspector's individual errors. To eliminate these drawbacks JNR have studied and developed sophisticated control equipment which automatically measures and evaluates pertinent data for all rolling stock. Two specialized articles are included: "Equipment for comprehensive test of electric cars", H. Matsuzawa, and "Automation of car inspection and repair at depots", Y. Asano.
