In this paper, a new evaluation system was developed for ride comfort test and vibration level test on railway vehicles. These tests are carried out by applying different equipments and test procedures before now. But this developed system is capable of ride comfort test and vibration test by a single integrated system. Also, the evaluation algorithm for the ride comfort was compared and verified by simulation results with VAMPIRE software. With this developed system, the comfort in a passenger coach and the vibration in a freight car were verified by the results in field test.
