Expert’s Eyes

 Ensuring transportation safety is an essential issue for creating a society in which everybody can live with delight. For example, in the railway sector, in addition to accident prevention and natural disaster countermeasures, crime and terrorism countermeasures have become important issues in recent years.
In order to solve these issues, research is conducted to analyse them from various perspectives, including engineering, human and systems, with the aim of proposing countermeasures that are considered effective in enhancing safety.
