Report of “Interconnection Symposium for Safe Drone Operation”- Why we release API and conduct interconnection test now –
NEDO and Fukushima Innovation Coast Initiatives Promotion Organization held “Interconnection Symposium for Safe Drone Operation” on July 26th, Wednesday at the Fukushima Robot Test Field (RTF).
In this symposium, 118 people interested in drones and UTM joined and had a lecture from John Walker, the chairperson of ISO/TC20/SC16 about status and importance of international standardization on drone.
In addition, to show a project progress, we presented development of Drone Traffic Management System, which enable drone mutually connected, releasement of API (Application Programming Interface), and schedule of interoperability test. Moreover, along with announcing a progress of developing collision avoidance technology and result of test flight, we conducted a panel discussion to deepen understanding on importance of interoperability in regards to Drone Traffic Management.
