Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation
Skydio2+ free test flight campaign

NTT e-Drone Technology Co., Ltd. (2-4-23 Kitahara, Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture, President: Michiaki Hoshino) is working to expand use cases that contribute to solving social issues using Skydio2+. Free test flights are available.
1. About Skydio2+
Skydio2+ is capable of omnidirectional obstacle avoidance and stable flight in environments where GPS cannot be acquired, thanks to the six visual sensors mounted on the top and bottom of the aircraft. NTT East has deployed “Skydio2+” to inspect the attached pipes and steel towers of its own bridges, and employees themselves are in charge of inspection work. I support you from the side.
In order to spread that know-how to the region, NTT E-Drone will provide “Skydio2+ handling” and “Skydio certification course” from the spring of 2022.
