    East Japan Railway Company (JR East) launched its latest radio-based train control system on October 10 Takashi Kato, manager, and Kenji Fujita, deputy manager of electrical and signal network system department at JR East, highlight the merits and characteristics of the new system. Orders for signalling and operational systems obtained during FY include a signalling system for a dedicated freight line in India and a transportation management system for Thameslink. In the future, Hitachi plans to further develop its signalling systems business with Ansaldo STS S.p.A, which has become part of Hitachi.

Trains move on fixed rails, making them uniquely susceptible to susceptibility is exacerbated by the enormous weight and inertia of a train, which makes it difficult to quickly stop when encountering an obstacle.

Japanese signalling was initially based on British railway signalling, and Japanese railway signalling continues to be based on the UK route signalling system. However, as signalling has advanced to meet Railway operating and signalling techniques in Europe requirements of the system (and due to the influence of the United States), the Japanese signalling system is a mixture of route.

Cars. After the first crude beginnings, railroad-car design took divergent courses in North America and Europe, because of differing economic conditions and technological developments. “speed signalling” or “route signalling”.

Speed signalling is the most common, where the indications for the driver represent an instruction to proceed at a speed depending on the type of train in his charge.

Most administrations in continental Europe and North America have adopted this. Standards for North American railway signaling in the United States are issued by the Association of American Railroads (AAR), which is a trade association of the railroads of Canada, the USA, and Mexico. Their system is loosely based on practices developed in the United Kingdom during the early years of railway development.

However, North American practice diverged from that of the United. Japan - Japan - Railways: Railways play an extremely important role in passenger travel, though they continue to give way to competition especially from road transport but also from air travel.

We find that both agglomeration and decentralization could occur. These strengths were on full display in China Railway Group's successful bid to build a kilometer high-speed rail line in Indonesia.
