Electrodynamic Maglev system using superconducting magnets is under development with MLU002 vehicle at the Miyazaki test center. MLU002 vehicle has 44 seats in passenger room and the composition of superconducting magnets on board is closer to that of a commercial car than the test vehicle preceding MLU002 vehicle. The electrodynamic system like an MLU002 has been confirmed to be feasible by the test results up to this time. We describe the main characteristics of MLU002 and report on the results of testing done.
