The technology of automated driving has been making rapid strides in the automobile sector and is quickly moving toward becoming a reality. However, automated driving technology was first implemented in the railway field in the 1970s (mainly as a new type of transportation system), and its safety requirements were stipulated through the International Electrotechnical Commission. In this paper, we describe the safety procedures of automated driving that have been adopted in Japan’s public transportation system (railway sector) and explain the techniques for ensuring the security of this technology in the railways of the future and in the incorporation of advanced automated driving technology in the automotive field.
