After banning Chinese aircrafts, Japan seeks open-source drone solutions

| |

Japanese government agencies will stop the use of Chinese drones in 2022 due to safety concerns.

However, Japanese drone alternatives are rare and the development of new drone technologies can be expensive. Hence, leading infrastructure companies now explore open-source drone solutions.

The Japan-based company, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) is one of the leading telecommunications companies in the world. NTT has been using Chinese drones to inspect critical infrastructure, including telecommunication cables. Now the company seeks open-source drone solutions and established NTT e-Drone Technology to manufacture and develop drones in Japan.

The company will use the open-source drone platforms and solutions of Auterion. Using open-source drone solutions will help Japanese companies to carry out various drone operations. Moreover, using open-source platforms can be more cost-effective for companies than developing their own drone solutions.
