Exterior Design

Exterior Design

We have been stepping up efforts to update our carriages with new technology that helps improve passenger experience on the automated transit service.

Careful consideration has been given to exterior and interior designs that could enhance a bright and open ambience and improve visibility of waterfront views as the train passes along the Rinkai waterfront area facing Tokyo Bay.

Design & Styling

1.The frontal part uses FRP (fibre reinforced polymer) to create oneness with the fender skirt, and larger, curved windshield panels are installed to enhance a feeling of lightness and speed.

2.The body panels employ stainless steel, the first as Yurikamome carriage, with consideration for waterfront environment. A marriage of beauty and simplicity of materials is realized here.

3.Large side windows provide a bright and open feel. The 6th-generation carriages employ heat-absorbing glass.

Design & Styling

Color Scheme

A more sophisticated color scheme, including a new emblem with higher visibility, is employed to achieve harmony with stainless body panels, with its classy simplicity hopefully passing on to future generations. The 6th-generation trains use a minimal amount of paint, while inheriting most of conservative aspects from the previous models.

Interior Design

Interior Design

The 6th-generation carriages are designed with a concept of more safety and friendliness.
A large variety of new ideas are incorporated in the sophisticated interior design

We have made efforts to create a new comfortable transport space, thinking out of the box of conventional commuter carriages.

Doors

The carriages of the 3rd generation and later employ suspended sliding doors to simplify the door structure and improve its reliability. These doors slide open over the exterior panels and do not require door cases or bottom rails. The plug door system was used for the carriages of the 1st and 2nd generations.

Doors

Seats

A two-seat plan, together with longitudinal seating, is adopted in consideration for both rush hours and off-peak hours. We have reviewed the shape and interval of two-seat rows in the 6th generation to improve passenger comfort. The areas of longitudinal seating have also been expanded to facilitate easier boarding and alighting.

Seats

Control Stand

Although under fully automated control, the train can be manually operated with the control stand (dash board) when moving in the maintenance area or in the case of emergency. The frontal windshield has a defogging heater wire in the lower part and a large, curved glass with colored film in the upper part. An emergency exit door is placed to the front left of the control stand. There is an emergency ladder equipped on the inner side of this door.

Control Stand

Straps / Floor Surface

Hanging straps of varied heights are installed for people of different heights. An anti-slip material is used on the floor surface. The door area is colored with bright cream to offer contrast and attract attention.

Straps / Floor Surface

Wheelchair Space・Priority seats

Wheelchair space and priority seats are placed next the door to allow easier boarding and alighting and to maximize passenger comfort.

Onboard Display

Onboard screens offer two different sets of information – the next station on the upper half and the interchange lines, events and advertisements on the lower half. Emergency information will be provided real-time.
