Five Systetms Supporting Yurikamome

In order to operate the Yurikamome, we need ELECTICITY to move the train, POWER CABLES to provide electricity, SIGNALS to create traffic rules, as in the traffic of cars and buses, and TELECOMMUNICAION and other systems to link the trains with the control center (central command office). We call the whole system the comprehensive control system.
