Abstract

When putting electric buses into practice in mass transit systems, the vehicle state management becomes a vital factor in the realization of a stable commercial operation. Aiming at achieving a sound bus operation, we installed a vehicle monitoring system on our own conversion E-Bus and realized remote vehicle control and driving data logging. In this manuscript, we are presenting a track record of the E-Bus and the vehicle monitoring system introduced in the JR (Japan Railway) Kesennuma Line which was severely hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011 and later temporarily restored as the BRT (Bus Rapid Transit).
