Recommended Posts

A little bit more info about this proposed rolling stock design:

TOKYO -- As part of efforts to bolster its overseas business, Hitachi plans to develop by 2018 a train car boasting an operating speed of more than 300kph.

     Japanese rolling-stock manufacturers have been collaborating with the Japan Railways group to export cars using shinkansen bullet train technology and standards. Hitachi aims to broaden its business beyond what shinkansen-related projects can bring.

 
 

     Hitachi's AT400 model, now under development, is compatible with European standards and will top 360kph. It will enable remote monitoring of components through sensors. Hitachi plans to use artificial intelligence to analyze data for enhanced breakdown prediction.

*apparently this design will be independent of systems/rolling stock designed around the shinkansen concept
