Hitachi has launched a drone platform solution expanding their existing infrastructure inspection services portfolio with an AI assisted, drone-based service. Over the last years, the societal impact of drone technology is steadily increasing and it is expected that the use of drone technology will improve business efficiency in many fields. Professional drone applications mainly target logistics, infrastructure inspection, surveying, agriculture, disaster response and spatial information data management. Moving from pilot controlled flights to automated drone flights Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) is key to realizing the full potential of these drone applications. To that end, Hitachi provides a drone flight management system and drone maintenance services to support safe and secure autonomous drone flights. Unifly and Terra Drone provide the technical UTM backbone to ensure safe BVLOS drone flights at the test center. After registration the drones are monitored and tracked in real-time informing the authorities continuously on drone flight activities and flight compliance.
