About Drone River Higashi Mikawa

We attempted to transport medical supplies using a drone on the assumption that roads and other transportation infrastructure would be blocked due to a landslide. The supplies were transported from the Ebi Structural Improvement Center in Shinshiro City, Aichi Prefecture, to the former Ebi Elementary School playground, a distance of one kilometer. The drone flew automatically along a pre-programmed flight route, landed safely at a drone port with a heliport function for takeoff and landing, and successfully transported medical supplies.

TOYOTEC's RDL Lens is participating in this joint development.
