ALI Technologies and SBS Holdings (provider of integrated logistics services) released a public demonstration experiment of logistic drones at SBS Logicom in Yokohama city.
In a complex radio wave environment and strong sea breeze, 5 round trip experiments of 100m were completed. Before then, tests were done in mountains & forests, but now they proved that autonomous flights can be performed safely in complex radio wave environments.
Aiming at social implementation including commercial use, they focus at providing the last mile service to the logistics industry at a low price.
