By setting up a hypothetical cage, a 3D area in which a drone can flight, prior to the flight, the drone automatically goes back within the area even if they are forced out of the zone by rain, wind or a technical trouble of the drone.
Terra drone developed and has started to use “Terra UTM”, its unique operation control system, and now is planning to promote international standardisation of the system with UNIFLY, the world-class leading company in the UTM industry. As to the invention of “4G LTE control system”, Terra drone utilised KDDI’s 4G LTE network, its base stations and the core system of Terra UTM.
This 4G LTE control system is the first phase of development on “Smart Drone Platform”, the project that Terra Drone announced last December. Since this April, Terra Drone and KDDI have conducted demonstration experiment of utilisation of the system as a solution to infrastructure inspection.
