autonomous infrastructure for drones


We are developing “drone pole” an autonomous infrastructure for drones to fly safely, accurately and a very long time.
In detail, keeping a safe height, the drone docks and locked to the drone pole, then it travels along the pole. After landing, it changes its battery to new one with our developed machine, and takes off autonomously.
Now, there are two main problems to utilize drones in our lives, “danger” and “shortness of flight time”.

Some products can solve only one of them. However, our breakthrough technology can solve both of them. By using this pole, drone can land and take off in the very accurate point and fly forever without wavering.

We are applying a patent for this world’s first technology.
Recently, EASA, which consists of 28 EU countries and EFTA, makes an effort to create standards for drones. To make the common regulation over EU countries, EU said focusing on safety. Moreover, in Europe, there are not only a lot of mountains, but also renewable energy facilities and traditional buildings. Therefore, the demands for logistics and inspection are large. For these reasons, Europe is the best area for us to be a drone de fact standard.
