In Japan most people take public transportation everywhere. So today we visited Japan Rail East which is leader in Japan’s transportation. They are Japan’s largest railway company. We learned a lot about how they are trying to make it easier for people to get from place to place. There working on making faster trains for more efficiency. Also installing systems where people can print where they are trying to go and it tells them what trains to take. They had plenty ideas to improving their railway. Such as they want to establish a smart station. The smart station consist of smart space, personalized information, interactive terminal, security, and providing easy-to understand train status information. Also making interactive signs to show you which train is coming next and how close it to where you are located. They gave us a tour of the projects they are working on and also of the new shopping and train area they are trying to make.
