They make my rides on the bullet train comfy and cozy
I love to sleep. Home is my favorite place for that, but sometimes Mommy takes me on the bullet train to visit Grandma and Grandpa. The first time, I was very scared and felt like crying. But when the ride began, it was so smooth and silent that I fell fast asleep. Mommy was happy because she had a relaxing trip, too.

Welcome to the World of Advanced
Rail Solutions for the Future
With Mitsubishi Electric’s transportation systems being used in over 30 countries, we are shaping the future of railways.
Mitsubishi Electric offers a comprehensive solution for entire transportation systems, addressing the issues that matter most: ensuring comfort and safety for passengers, while enabling efficient, environmentally friendly operation. We manufacture traction, propulsion control, and braking systems to guarantee the smooth acceleration, deceleration, and control of trains from start to stop. In addition, we provide train information systems, a smart solution that allows the behavior of all on-board equipment to be monitored and controlled. For passenger comfort, we deliver air-conditioning systems as well as passenger information and entertainment systems to enhance the passengers’ enjoyment of their train ride and display information. Furthermore, by interconnecting train and ground systems with wireless network technologies, we facilitate the surveillance of on-board train monitors and displays from ground station control centers, realizing bilateral communication and driving instruction.
