NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization), KDDI (Japanese telecommunications operator), Terra Drone (Japanese industrial drone service provider), and SECOM (Japanese security company) succeeded in the worldâs first security verification experiments of multiple drones using 4G LTE mobile communication network at a wide-area facility. In this demonstration experiment, remote patrol security by four autonomous flying drones was conducted utilizing KDDIâs âSmart Drones Platform.â With remote patrol security flying multiple drones, it leads to security enhancement such as the discovery of suspicious individuals and fire, alerting attention, night security and so on. NEDO, KDDI, Terra Drone, SECOM utilized the mobile communication network of 4G LTE to fly the drones autonomously for the first time in the world in leisure facility in Kanagawa prefecture. Long-Distance autonomous flight, which is one of the features of âSmart Drone,â applies to the security of the facility where existing surveillance cameras cannot recognize.
