■ Aerial laser measurement with drones (world’s first commercial product)

Our company is Japan’s leading manufacturer of drones equipped with high-performance lasers, and has delivered more than 70 such drones to the customers. This has simplified the surveying of terrain in forested areas, making it possible to detect earth fissures and to grasp changes over time at construction sites. We were the first company in the world to commercialize such drone products, which have received recognition and acclaim from a wide range of sources. Regarding the development and verification of robots for next-generation social infrastructure in 2015, our products were evaluated as “technology that is expected to be applied in business and utilized in the field”. At the 7th Robot Awards in 2016, we were awarded the Minister’s Prize from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT), and our products were registered in MLIT’s New Technology Information System (NETIS).
