The Obstacle Detection Investigation Committee, who has been entrusted with the task, reached the conclusion that at the present level of technology no single system exists which alone can fully satisfy the requirement; there is no alternative but to combine several different means depending on the given conditions. Surface Wave Radar System, which has been studied for this purpose by the Railway Technical Research Institute, is now past the stage of theoretical calculation and laboratory test. The 1961 research results on the signal and safety equipment to be adopted for the new Tokaido line are outlined. With the advent of 1962, tests using real trains will take place on the completed section of the new line.
