PERFORMANCE TEST OF HARD COPY EQUIPMENT FOR FREIGHT CAR LABEL

To collect inbound information on car numbers and destinations, Japanese National Railways initially tested video-tape recording equipment as a means of reducing manpower requirements. A different concept of hard-copy collection system has been under development and actual tests were made in 1972. Reflective paper labels applied to freight cars actuate the wayside recording equipment that then records the label information which includes elements necessary for classification purposes.
