What does it feel like to drive a bullet train that can reach a speed of 350 km/h?
The 360 video will put you in the heart of the action. You'll experience the driver starting the train and how he deals with emergency scenarios in this simulation.
The video shows part of the real training equipment that bullet train drivers have to get familiar with before they get in the real thing.
Each bullet train route involves more than one driver. Each driver will only work for up to three hours before switching over to another driver.
Part of the safety precautions are a special pedal that needs to be pushed every 30 seconds to ensure the driver is focused at all times.
What you can see is that while a driver is in the cockpit, other people are working in the signaling and dispatching systems.
