Safety principle and technology, inherited from the Tokaido Shinkansen

The Superconducting Maglev travels at a maximum speed of 311mph.
To ensure safe operation, it inherits safety principles and technology from the Tokaido Shinkansen including a highly precise and reliable "automatic train operation system" that regulates train speed from a ground control room.
