Paper Abstract

1. Role of research simulator Greater importance is being attac-hed to the improvement of safety and efficiency in train operation whose speed and frequency become increasingly high. For this reason, along with the technical improvements of rolling stock and structures it is deemed essential to grasp them in terms of a man-machine system and make them free of defects from the standpoint of human engineering. Among others, human engineering studies of vehicles, train operation and train crew are vitally important. Hereafter with progress of automation, changes may occur in the functional shares of man and machine in the whole system of man and machine in the whole system of train operation; nonetheless there will continue to exist an interface between man and machine. Thus, research on the man-machine system in the operational setup will remain a significant task.
