Simulator for Driver Training
The faithful reproduction of real train driving conditions based on detailed reproduction of real-life physics is useful not just for the advancement of mechanical driving skills, but also aids the trainee's growth in abilities like quick decision making in emergency conditions. Also, by combining computer-generated graphics with real footage, the experience becomes even more realistic. The system can scale in different ways, and can be offered in lower-cost and less labor-intensive versions that also require less space. We promise to deliver practical and effective training environments based on your requests.

Our simulator contains ATC cab signal system which speed code changes all the time, according to preceding train that refers to the actual timetable.The train performance also includes various regenerative brake effort in real-time, which is synchronized with changing trolley voltage, this is the one and only system as a train simulator.
Additionally coefficient of friction of brake shoe could be changed dynamically when brake apply timing has different factors such as speed, pressure and time.
Over the driving console, there is a big 142 inch-high-resolution-display and five speakers of punchy sounds to enhance extremely realistic and dynamic atmosphere. Visitors can drive three kinds of difficulties and three driving routes, as well as four kinds of trains such as limited express and so on, there is an expert mode that provides most difficult to drive simulation during busiest time of morning is also available. Visitors can finally see the result of driving score. You feel that your dream to become the train driver comes true and try to get the highest points ever.
And this simulator is available checking schedule of simulator reservation, and easily adjustment for the playing fee.
"The Museum of Train and Bus" of Tokyu Corporation

E5 Shinkansen simulator
This is the E5 Shinkansen Train Simulator, Ongakukan's latest project developed for JR East Japan.
The driver's cab uses actual equipment, and the Shinkansen signal safety device, DS-ATC and other equipment operations are simulated faithfully.
The three monitors show various statistics such as speed.They support display in Japanese and English.
This simulator includes six scenarios, including driving at 320 km/h and emergency response in the case of earthquakes and other abnormal states.
The person standing on the dangerous area of the platform is rendered as a computer-generated image, superimposed on top of the real footage being played.
The driver can sound the horn to have him step back.
The mock-up train car can be separated into parts for display in various venues domestically and internationally.
Kuzuha Mall SANZEN-HIROBA Digital Dynamic Preservation of 3505
This is a simulator for the Keihan Electric Railway 3000 (old model). Using image and sound, the Digital Dynamic Preservation system gives the feeling of a live train, as if the train is moving, without any dynamic movement of the train itself (static preservation).
The system reproduces running sounds, equipment operation sounds, station sounds, auxiliary power supply sounds, and so on using 8 loudspeakers under the floor and in the driver’s cab. Images are not only the front view, but also features a right side view.
This setup provides a powerful and convincing view from the train window.
It also functions as a movie theater, allowing visitors to enjoy the simulator as a passenger, even without a driver. This exhibition places itself on a whole new tier compared to previous driving simulators.
