Drone News

Hello World!

Welcome to the news on commercial drones in Japan. Let’s jump right in.

We already know Japanese companies have been early adopters of industrial and service robots, driving the growth of a strong Japanese supplier ecosystem. Now connected aerial robots are bringing increased safety, productivity gains, and whole new products and services to a new range of industries. And Japanese innovation and the strength of Japan’s leading manufacturers are the foundation for Japan’s commercial drone supplier ecosystem.

Ryoji Koike and I have been collaborating on covering commercial drones for some time now and consulting on how the flying robot future is going to affect big players in the industries and infrastructure it touches. The reaction to our work has been so positive, and the transformative potential for these technologies is so clear, that we decided it had to become our focus. Ryoji and I have now started Aerial Innovation as the vehicle for our work to help drive the development of commercial drones in the US and Japan.
