Aeronext and its 4D GRAVITY technology opened a test line in Kosuge Village in anticipation of social implementation of logistics drones.
Logistics systems that utilize drones are attracting attention as a solution for areas where land transportation is difficult or where there is a lack of delivery personnel.
The logistics drone "Next DELIVERY ®" developed by Aeronext adopts the original center of gravity control technology "4D GRAVITY ® ︎" to realize horizontal transportation of luggage regardless of the orientation of the aircraft. By eliminating the bias of luggage during transportation, it is possible to transport medical and precision equipment and deliver meals, which is difficult with conventional drones.
Aeronext's Next DELIVERY goal is BVLOS flights in manned areas in 2022, which is the goal of Japan Air Mobility Revolution Roadmap.
A regular drone delivery route was set up in Kosuge Village. The village has problems with the frequency of traditional deliveries, and drone deliveries should promote the local economy.
The flight demo delivered vegetables and products. The luggage did not collapse, confirming the quality of the delivery.
